It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to our brilliant, witty, generous, and boundlessly loving Paul. Passing on Tuesday 6 October after a long-fought battle with Brain Cancer. He was in the tender embrace of his family – just as he had scripted it.
Husband and soul mate of Sheridan.
Irreplaceable Dad to Tayla, Paul and Caiti. Loved by their partners Adam and Hayley.
Cherished son of Janice and Malcolm (dec)
Much loved son in law to Bill and Dianne
Adored Grandson, respected Brother, Brother in law, Uncle, Nephew and Cousin.
Paul, you are my entire world, my greatest thing.
I miss you so very much.
I wish I could feel your lovable snuggle,
And your soft and gentle touch.
But for now, I have to wait,
Until we meet again.
You will always be in my heart and thoughts, my husband and best friend.
Always and Forever,
Our hearts will always touch.
Always and Forever,
Your wife loves you so very much.
“To live in hearts, we leave behind is not to die”

Rest easy Paul ♥️ Love youOctober 13, 2020
You fought so hard to stay here with your family and soulmate Sheridan. Not a day will pass where you are not in all our thoughts. We will continue to reminisce and keep your memories cherished and alive. You are and always will be a bloody good bloke. Love you cousin, rest now ♥️
Paul, you shared 20 years with my sister Jude and had three beautiful children, Taylor, Courtney and Paul, during which time you were a great father and wonderful partner. Lots of fond memories of great children’s parties, of you and little working in the shed, the amazing red mailbox you made together. Your suffering has ended.October 13, 2020

Firstly, we would like to remember Paul as ‘Birdman”
The young larrikan with the full beard and the quick, dry sense of humour.
Fun, crazy, hardworking concreter and work partner for many years
Always creative and inventive. The genius was there to see but yet to be discovered
We were so proud when determined to achieve your goals, you started your own business – buzzing around in mini dingos – returning to university as a mature age student to study a course many of us struggle to pronounce let alone understand
You excelled. Not only graduating but topping your class – an illustration of your brilliant mind and strength
Thank you Sheridan , for the love you shared with Paul and supporting and caring for him during his cancer battle
Our sincere condolences to all his family
Friends forever – Rest in Peace Paul

Paul, I only got to meet you a couple of times. The first,your wedding day to my longtime friend Sheridan. My heart melted that day, seeing the love you had for each other was something else. Surrounded by a beautiful loving family And some close friends. It was such a beautiful wedding to witness.
The second, before this 2nd Covid lockdown. At your home.I was blown away by your crystal collections and the passion you had for them.
I only wish I had time to get to know you better and thank you for bringing love back into Sheridan’s life.
Sending my heartfelt love to your family,children and dear SheridanOctober 13, 2020
Rest easy Paul no more pain xxoo 😘😘😘
Paul, you were many things throughout your life but a failure or quitter was not one of them, you put your all into everything you did and always found the outcome you were looking for, you were an excellent father, a great brother, a loving partner.October 10, 2020
Your passion for greatness was second to none, watching you push through uni while having your tumour removed, you still had bills to pay and worked two jobs to make sure everything was always possible. Watching you graduate is a proud moment I’ll hold close for eternity.
You truly are an inspiration and I hope your passion for life, your need for success and drive has been passed onto your children.
Rest easy now, it’s been a long fight.
I hope you can look down and be proud of the strength shown by your family at this time.
You made my dear friend Sheridan smile again. You made my dear friend Sheridan be happy again. You made my dear friend Sheridan feel loved again.
I will be grateful, always.
You showed courage and bravery.
May you now rest in peace.

Memories made at fun family gatherings will be recalled often and ours to cherish forever. Paul, you put up an awesome battle leaving behind broken hearts and precious memories. Fly high !!! Love Margie Ian and family xxxOctober 8, 2020
I only got to meet you on only a very few occasions. But you lit up the room with your warmth and wicked sense of humor. I immediately felt like you would be a close and loved friend for ever. You accepted me and my husband with open arms and we felt drawn to you both from that very first time. But that is who you were Paul, strong, loving and courageous and I am sad we did not get to grow that friendship. You will be greatly missed. But now it is time for you to fly high and soar free of pain. Goodbye for now beautiful man.October 8, 2020
