The Rev. Larry Paul (1939-2018)

The Rev. Larry Robert Paul (Class of 1963, The Presbyterian College)

The Presbyterian College extends its condolences to the family of the Rev. Larry Robert Paul on the news of his recent passing. A lovely tribute to the Rev. Paul recently appeared on an Ottawa news site, here, written by one of his neighbours. And the following obituary has appeared on the website of The Presbyterian Church in Canada:

On October 5th, 2018 we lost the heart and soul of our family. Larry passed away at Perth hospital after a brave battle with cancer, surrounded by his loving family. Larry touched countless lives through his over fifty years of ministry and his music. The world is a better place because of Larry Paul. He was the beloved husband of the late Evelyn (McEwen) Paul who predeceased him in February 2018 and adored father of Mary-Lynn Paul of Perth, Margo (Curtis) Wright of Franktown and David (Kealy) Paul of Perth. Larry was the treasured grandfather of Connor, Jenna, Rachel, Nathan Wright, Robbie Watson (father late Frank Watson), Elliot and Veda Paul. He was the cherished cousin and nephew of both the American and Canadian Paul clans.

Larry will be sadly missed by all his family and friends. Friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St., West, Perth on Tuesday, October 9th, 2018 from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. and Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. Funeral service will be held in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Perth on Thursday at 1:00 P.M. A gathering to share memories will follow in the church hall. The interment will be private in Dewar’s Cemetery, Ashton. In remembrance of Larry, contributions to the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation Palliative Care Unit or the Canadian Addison’s Society would be appreciated.
