Friday October 12, 2018


Our family is heartbroken to announce the sudden, unexpected passing of our dearly beloved Paul. A father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend. Paul leaves behind his cherished children, Katherine and Aaron, of whom he was so proud. Paul will be forever loved by parents, Eugene and Christine; sister, Lynn (Phillip); brother, Kevin (Amber); nieces and nephews, Mason, Maggie, and Tessa; aunt, Muriel Madigan (predeceased); and uncles, Larry Fitzpatrick, Alan Thomas, and David Thomas (predeceased). He will be missed by cousins, David, Theresa, Susan, Colleen, Lizanne, and Alexandria.
In the 1980s prior to doing his MBA, Paul created a software business, starting with shareware, originally called APS, right at the beginning of the internet boom.
For twenty years he suffered the results of a badly performed, unsuccessful laser eye treatment that caused him constant pain. He travelled all over the world seeking a solution. Finding none, his suffering ended abruptly on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the age of 54.
His life passions were his children, his family, his music, walks on the beach, his pets, golf, carrying the Olympic Torch, technology, cycling and skiing with his loving children, Katherine and Aaron.
Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church (19 Viewpoint Ave, Hamilton) on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 11 a.m. Reception to follow in the parish hall. Burial will then follow at 1:30 p.m. to Mt. Hamilton Cemetery (Rymal Road).
In lieu of flowers, donations to CNIB or Covenant House Toronto in Paul's memory would be appreciated. Online condolences can be made at
