December 20, 2020, at 3:45 a.m., in his 72nd year, Paul Lennox Wood left
our sides and the world he knew. He moved on leaving his beloved wife
Mara, sons David, Michael and Christopher, sister Rita (Brian), brothers
Richard, Leonard, Martin, Michael (Peggy), his grandchildren, along with
many family and friends. Paul has left us, yet he is not alone. He was
greeted with open arms by his family (mother, father, sisters, brother,
cousins) and friends, to help guide him through his next journey. Paul
was a good hearted person who believed in providing for his family and
enjoying life with them and the many friendships created over the
years...salt of the earth he was!
He requested to be cremated, which has taken place and will be interred
together with his wife when they meet again. A celebration of Paul's
life will be held, with those whose hearts he had touched, once we get
through these unparalleled times. To his family, friends and the amazing
medical team, that supported him over the years battling strokes, heart
issues, leukemia and property taxes... a quadzillion thank you's! A
gentleman, by the name of Hunter S. Thompson, once wrote: Life should
not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a
pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a
cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly
proclaiming, WOW...WHAT A RIDE!! These words would suit Paul and the
life he lived.
Expressions of sympathy can be made through Ontario Cremation Services
As Paul lived life through gestures of kindness, please consider in his
memory donating time to those in need in your community. May the spirit
of Christmas be with you and the ones you love...sláinte mhaith!!!
