PICKARD, Paul Lewis

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Paul Lewis Pickard on Saturday, January 29th, 2022. Paul loved and was extremely proud of his family including his wife, Cathy Stanton; his daughter Shelley (Rob), grandsons Jeremy and Brayden; his son Carl; his son Paul (Gayle), granddaughter Abigail; his son Bob (Michelle), grandchildren Chelsea and Sam; his son Michael (Nicole), grandchildren Brayah, Emma, Sarah, Ashton, and Hunter; his brother Edward; and extended family and friends. Paul had many talents, starting out as a mechanic, he went on to become an entrepreneur, owning a small resort, a shop and garage of his own, and then before retirement he ran a tackle shop born from his love of fishing. Paul had a great ear for music. He loved to sing and could play almost any instrument with strings, his favourite being the banjo. He enjoyed sharing his love of music with his family and friends at many occasions. Paul had a passion for art. He especially enjoyed watercolours and spent many hours with a paint brush in hand. He also loved working with wood and created many treasures for his family and friends. Paul’s outgoing and friendly personality was contagious and he loved to joke around with everyone, including his many wonderful caregivers during the past months. We are very grateful for the care, consideration and compassion by the Nurses, PSWs, and Prince Edward Health team. The family is planning a private celebration of life at a later date.
