It is with great sorrow that our family announces the passing of Arnold Lees Paul (Arn or Arnie as he was called by his many friends and family) passed away in his eighty fifth year. Arnold was born in Viking, Alberta to John and Nellie Paul, he had one sister Catherine and two brothers Alfred (Marilyn) and Tom (Marg). Arnold and his first wife Ada had many children, Lynn (Wanda), Phillip (Bonnie), Ricky, Charlene, Harry, Linda (Greg) and Laurie. Arnold was pre deceased by Ada and Harry and one grandson Kevin. Arn was blessed to marry Thelma (Nov, 1974). Arn then welcomed four step children Greg, Charlene, Don (Colleen) and Fred into the family. One of the highlights of Arn’s life was a trip that he and Thelma made to Norway, he spoke of it with great joy. Arnie enjoyed his holiday bus trips, fishing, curling, golf and coaching baseball. Arnold leaves his loving wife Thelma, his children, step children, 13 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, 4 step grandchildren and 8 step great grandchildren. Arnie was a hard worker all his life and loved to tell stories about his days working at A.L. Fortune School. He will be missed by all. Rest in Peace.
