James Willard Paul

Obituary Image


   Paul, Willard March 14, 1963 - April 28, 2019 passed away at his home in Roblin, Manitoba at the age of 56 years.

   Born in Roblin, Manitoba on March 14th, 1963 to James and Vivian Paul (nee Lavallee), he was raised in San Clara, Manitoba where he went to school.  He then went to school in Roblin for awhile until he quit and went to work at the Delamare saw mill in Boggy Creek, Manitoba.  He then started working as a limberman in 1999 where he continued to work until 2008 when he was injured. 

   In the winter of 1999, he met the love of his life Cheryl (Tourond) Paul.  They were married on October 8, 2005 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

   The wild one’s most favorite pass time was spending time with his grandbabies and pulling them in the wagon.  He also enjoyed his fishing when the weather was good.  Willard was a very hardworking and loving father, grandfather, son, and husband.  He was a jokester, if there was a prank to be pulled you can bet that it was the wild one.

   Willard was an amazing man loved by many and cherished by all.  He will sadly be missed by so many people, but he will never be forgotten.  I am sure he will pull his tricks even from the other side just to show you that he is still there.  He will always live through our memories that we have made with him over the years.

   Willard leaves behind to cherish his memory his mother Vivian Paul; the love of his life Cheryl Paul; his daughters Amanda Keshane and Crystal Tourond (Kolton); his son Darren Tourond (Jaspen); his siblings Marleen (Les) Fesik, Rodrick (Barb) Paul, Eva (Greg) Dobranski, Rodney (Leeann) Paul; as well as seventeen grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.  Willard was predeceased by his father James Paul; sister Connie Allarie; and brother Hector Lavallee.
