He is predeceased by his parents Jack and June, his niece Tammy, his sister Catherine and his brother Peter. The family moved to Canada when he was a baby and they ended up in Guelph, Ontario. Growing up he was in Boy Scouts and Air Cadets and on his way to getting his pilot’s license when it was discovered that he was color blind. Photography was a huge passion of his, that, and fishing with his Dad. He tried his hand at guitar but didn’t make the family band. In 1962, the family followed the eldest daughter west to Port Moody, BC. His gang in high school consisted of his brother Peter and sister Sharon, Al and James Pipe and all their friends, also making many more friendships everywhere he went, that lasted a lifetime. He also met the love of his life and best friend, Myralyn Pipe, in high school and they married on August 2, 1969. Later they moved to Mission and along came Stephanie and Eric. Paul’s careers were his Photography studio and later Corrections. They moved to Rosedale and later Agassiz. His interests were photography, woodworking, camping, traveling, chess, cards, and computers. Dad’s intellect and creative mind were a great inspiration to those around him. Paul and Myralyn were together until the moment he died suddenly in her arms on July 14th, 2014, from a heart attack. His gentle, caring manner and love for family and his humor and quick wit will always be remembered and missed.
