I didn’t see him a lot throughout his battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis but when I did, he was always cheerful & friendly as he had always been.
    Wishing you my heartfelt sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time!

  40. Dear Jeannie, Deanne, Jerry, Rene and families,

    We all lost a wonderful person when Paul passed. He was a thoughtful, caring, intelligent, family-oriented person, who was a friend and mentor to many. Paul was a huge beacon within his Assessment profession, with the distinction of being a honorary life time member. He was the longest serving City Assessor in the history of the City of St Albert, which was a testament to his loyalty and his work ethic. His big smile and infectious laugh will be missed by all.

  41. To the Boutin Family

    I saw him as as a thoughtful, caring, individual who took the time to listen, comment, if necessary and really cared about his fellow man/woman.
    Such a talent, so much appreciated.

  44. I am deeply saddened to hear of Paul’s passing. I have many fond memories of Paul. Helen and I enjoyed a wonderful visit with Paul at his second home at Palm Creek, Casa Grande. RIP Paul. Condolences to Jeanne and family.

  45. Dear Jeanne,
    It’s been a month and we continue to miss Paul each and every day! We shared so many good times and feel that our daily FaceTime visits are what saved all four of us from developing cabin fever during these many COVID months,
    We will continue to pray for Paul and for you and your family!
