I didn’t hardly know him. His daughter Michele is married to my brother Tim.  Prayers for the family.  Loss of a parent is a hard thing to got through.  Prayers.

I remember Paul from when he came to Wawa, Ontario to visit with my father, Gary Stockton. I’m sure the two have lots of stories to exchange now. Hugs to the family.
