Paul was born and raised in Tracadie, New Brunswick. Once moving to Ontario, he spent many years working at the A&P and Food Basics grocery stores.
He had a passion for playing music since a young age and was an avid member of the Mandolin Orchestra. He volunteered his time playing at many senior’s homes to the delight of the residents and staff. He played many instruments including guitar, violin, mandolin and singing. When he played music, he would light up the room with all of his talents. Paul also loved motorcycles his entire life and enjoyed riding his Harley-Davidson with his friends and family.
