Brother Paul Wood

Sisters & Brothers, It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Brother Paul Wood. Paul passed away on December 20, 2020 in his 72nd year.

Salt of the earth he was!

On 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 at 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!!!
