Obituary

~~~~~~~~~~~

Entered into rest peacefully at his residence surrounded by his family on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 after a battle with cancer. Beloved husband of Audrey (née Kelly) and dear father of Mark (Sueling), Kelly (Steve), Stephen and Alyson (Craig). Fondly remembered by his siblings Mike (Karen), Dan (Karen), and Anne MacDonald (Stuart, dec’d) as well as his six grandchildren Janelle, Taylor, Emma, Peyton, Jake and Sloane. He was predeceased by his parents Francis and Norah and daughter Paula.

Paul was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather who cherished time with his family. Paul had developed special relationships with many friends in the Brockville area and from his days at St. Pats and Regiopolis College. He loved to attend gatherings with his friends and family, particularly on the beautiful St. Lawrence River where he enjoyed delivering memorable toasts to all attendees. He was deeply devoted to the Brockville community including to the missions of St. Lawrence College, the YMCA and the Aquatarium. He will be greatly missed by members of the Brockville business, arts and legal community and will always be remembered for his kindness and compassion. His family and friends will have fond memories of their time together on sailing trips, art trips, skiing, at Senators games, at floor hockey games, on the golf course and at the bridge table.

A private graveside service will be held at St. Francis Xavier due to current Covid 19 restrictions.

Please take a moment to send a message of condolence to the family or share a special thought of Paul on the Memory Wall above. Thank you.

My Dear Audrey and Family: Please accept our condolences in the passing of your dear Paul. I feel I was very fortunate in having such an amazing man to work for, for many years. Always patient, to the point, but yet lighthearted, he made you feel at ease regardless of the negative issue at hand. Whether he was slapping the ball around the gym in floor hockey at the YMCA or giving a little speech to honour, introduce or compliment something needing recognition, he was always a respectful, humble, gentleman, who knew how to get a chuckle out of you, especially if you were paying attention to what he said. His paintings were intriguing to me, as I often found myself trying to interpret the different ones he would have at the law office. He seemed to have a depth about him, that is so often missing in many people these days.
It is not so much the passing of time that heals our sense of loss, but rather the understanding of life itself; for in the light of awareness, everything is always alive.
Please know, that although he will be very sadly missed, he will ALWAYS be remembered; and only a breath away.
Much respect and love, Lesley and Laurie Dunning.
