Cropped of Paul
In Loving Memory of

Paul Andrew Tremblay


Obituary of Paul Andrew Tremblay

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Paul on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, in the comfort of his own home, in his 59th year. Paul's memory will forever be cherished by his loving sisters, Elizabeth (Gordon) McLean and Susan (Christopher) Dredge. He was a beloved Uncle to Michael McLean, Cindy Creasor, Spencer (Gloria) Dredge, Nadine (Peter) Wen, as well as his great-nieces and great-nephews; Hannah, Isaac, Jessica, Kalven, and Lilac. Paul was predeceased by his parents, Andre and Betty Tremblay, and his sister Laura Tremblay.

Paul will be remembered as a gentle and caring soul who had a knack for spreading joy through his great sense of humor. His playful demeanor and love for light-hearted jokes endeared him to everyone he met. He had a remarkable sociability and eagerly anticipated the moments he could spend with his family, often counting down the days and hours until those cherished gatherings.

Among his many passions, Paul found joy in trains, and recently, he had enjoyed the most memorable day having the chance to go on a steam engine train ride. He had diverse interests that included bowling with the Special Olympics team, visiting Niagara Falls and taking in the elements of Nature. He was a loyal supporter of his favourite teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs & Blue Jays.

Creativity was at the heart of Paul's spirit. He loved working with the Longhurst day programs (virtually) doing such things as crafting, painting, pottery, cooking, playing many games and taking part in other interests. He enjoyed dancing, even in his wheelchair. He also enjoyed music, particularly his music box, 'you are my sunshine', which he played and sang daily. He was passionate about gardening. Nurturing flowers & plants indoors was his specialty.

But perhaps the most endearing trait of this gentle soul was his genuine love for hugs, a simple gesture that encapsulated his warmth and affection.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Karim and Taylor, Olga from the LHIN, ParaMed, Bayshore, St. Elizabeth's Palliative Care, Bethesda, Niagara Support Services (Joanne, Julia, Joe, Brittany and other team members), the Dual Diagnosis Team, Community Living St. Catharines, and the extensive network of healthcare professionals who supported and cared for Paul throughout his journey. A special mention goes to Christopher North, Paul's palliative care nurse who went above and beyond the call of duty, as well as Jericho, Joan, and Jessica for their exceptional dedication. A special thanks to Krystal and her team at Essentials for their great care that was given.

As per Paul's family wishes, cremation and a private graveside service has taken place. A Celebration of Paul's Life will be held in his honour, at the Kingdom Hall, 6457 Montrose Road, Niagara Falls, on Saturday, September 9, 2023 from 5:30pm until 7:30pm, with a service being held at 6pm.

Arrangements have been entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. Online condolences may be shared on Paul’s tribute page found at If desired, memorial donations may be given to programs that support adults living with disabilities, Scoliosis Foundation or to the Canadian Lung Association.

We had the pleasure of knowing Paul for many years during his childhood and younger years. He always had a keen interest in his Toronto Maple Leafs and later on the Blue Jays collecting many treasures for both. He was well loved by all family members receiving excellent care in all aspects of his life. Rest in Peace Paul!!

I had the pleasure of being Paul’s teacher years ago. He taught me many things about being a quiet learner. I can see in his life’s story that he made a big lasting impact on those around him with his caring smile and personality. Rest in peace.

Your loving family.
