May 30, 1940 - February 8, 2019
Paul was born May 30, 1940 in Wilkie, Sask. and passed from this earth on February 8, 2019.
Paul leaves to mourn his wife, Karen, of 40 years, son, Brad (Rachel), granddaughters, Olivia, Eve and Esmé of Prince Albert, Sask.; daughter, Trisha (Chad Trombley) grandsons, Jace and Jared of Carrot River, Sask.; daughter, Shannon Kobelsky and granddaughter, Keira of Saskatoon, Sask.; son, Calvin (Erin) and grandsons, Kale, Ander and Jax of North Battleford; mother-in-law, Edna Leedahl of Saskatoon, Sask.; sisters, Edith Danderfer, Pauline Kushner, Donna Moyer, Wilma Sizer, Mildred Affleck, Margaret Impey; brothers, Bob, Gerry, Norman and Ken.
Dad was predeceased by parents, Nicholas and Teresa; brothers-in-law, Ron Moyer and Gary Affleck; sister-in-law, Lorraine Kobelsky; and his father-in-law, Harlen Decker; and step-father-in-law, Al Leedahl.
Some of the highlights of Dad's life included his 40 year marriage to our Mom; his travels in the late 1970s to Australia, South Africa, Fiji, New Zealand and Egypt; his nine healthy grandchildren and being so blessed to spend so much time and create such amazing memories with them; his love of farming, his love for his community, his church and the Knights of Columbus. Dad was an avid volunteer and recognized blood donor and each year anticipated the family camping trip and fishing trip with his sons.
Dad -- you are an example to all of us what a true gentleman, husband, father and Papa should be. You were always so very generous. We will make sure to tell baby Jax and the other grandkids what an exceptional man you are. Thank you for everything you've given us -- we will miss you very much.
Dad's Prayers were held on February 10, 2019 and his Mass of Christian Burial was held February 11, both from Our Lady of Fatima Church, Landis, Sask. Interment followed in Landis Cemetery.
Memorial donations are gladly accepted by the Mount Carmel Knights of Columbus, c/o Leo Schwebius.
