Mike CascaddenWow! What a shame I grew to know Paul working together at Kellogg’s for many years! Such a great guy! Had great laughs at break table and talking about our kids. That’s when you really saw that infectious smile of Paul’s. So sorry for your loss. (our loss) he was a good man!
Lynn AylwardMy heartfelt condolences to all of Paul’s family. The Aylward Clan and Blizzard clan went through West Kings together. For me, Paul was one of the good guys. Always kind, really funny, and super smart -he made my WK life so much more bearable . Our ongoing arguments about whether Boxing was a real sport or not led to many practical jokes. We kept in touch intermittently at Dalhousie University and I could always count on a welcoming hug whenever I ran into Paul. To live , to laugh, to love....

Larry BuhagiarSally, Sharon, Kathy and Jim please accept my heartfelt condolences on Paul’s passing. He was a very special person. When I think of Paul the most salient thing that comes to mind is his perpetually smiling face. One of my most cherished memories growing up in Greenwood is of Paul and I running up Tremont Mountain on a scorching hot blue sky summer day. Even then he was still smiling. And I am sure he still is.
Liz and Fred TappenOur thoughts and prayers go out to your family, Sally, on this sad occasion.May God bless you all and keep you in the palm of his hand.
Wendy FoxI have tried several times to write condolences here for Paul's family and I struggle to find the right words. I lived with Paul, we worked together, we drank a lot of beer together. I have countless amazing memories of our years together. He was much more than a friend, he was like family. He was one of my favourite people, I loved him very much. We argued over/debated pretty much everything: Dire Straits vs. Spoons, Letterman VS SNL, Boxing VS Anything else on TV...I trusted him to 'tell it like it is', even if sometimes I didn't want to hear it. He cared. He was so funny, so brilliant...I always told him he should be on the radio with that sharp wit and amazing bingo caller voice of his. I don't like to think of a world without him. I am so sad for all of his family. Thinking of you all. Wendy

Dawn StoliarMy sincere condolences to Paul's family. I knew Paul from school in Greenwood. A kind and thoughtful person.
Joe KimI was so saddened to hear of Paul's passing. I will forever miss our great conversations about sports and everything else. Since the first time I've met him, he was always my favorite person to talk to at the bar, I would always sit next to him when I saw him and vice versa. Paul was such a sweet, kind and gentle person, he wouldn't even hurt a fly. He was one of a kind. He will be forever missed in my heart. My condolences go out to all his family members and close friends. Rest in peace Paul,. Love you man wish I could of been a better friend.
Martin ColdwellI was very shocked and saddened to hear of Paul's passing. I worked with Paul in Halifax which is where I met him.

He was like family to us. we spent many Saturdays at peddlers pub listening to Kenny, Alex and the swell guys. I will miss you my friend. My condolences go out to the Blizzard family. My heart will ache for a very long time. Rest in peace my friend

I have very fond memories of Paul from out younger days. I will absolutly miss hearing from him. To Sally and the entire family I just want to let you know you are not alone in your grief. Paul will be missed by many. My condolences to you all.
