He will be lovingly missed by Donna, his wife of 37 years, brothers; Tom(Jennifer), John(Marybeth), Dan(Helen) sister Margaret(Jim) and many nieces and nephews whom he adored. He was predeceased by parents Thomas and Clara, and brother Peter.

  1. Someone who shared so much of life with you will forever be a part of you. We know the days and months ahead will be a big adjustment, so please give yourself a lot of grace. Do whatever you need to take care of you—and know we are here for you, too.”

  2. My baby brother, youngest of six children of Tom And Clara, our parents. There was always so much love in our family, and first we lost our mom and dad, brother Peter, and now Paul. Each one of us will add more pain of loss. The loss of our “little” brother is a different pain, as we were his protectors, and we couldn’t stop him leaving as much as we tried. I don’t think this will ever get better, it will just get a little easier to handle as time goes by! RIP Paul, I loved you for everything that you were! Brother, John.

  3. It is indeed with a heavy heart that I have lost my wonderful, lighthearted and cherished younger brother. Paul was always surrounded by laughter because he brought joy along with him wherever he went.
    Paul was most fortunate that he enjoyed 37 years with his soul mate, Donna. A match made in heaven from my point of view!
    We love you Donna and share in your grief.

  4. I met Paul when he was 6 yrs. old. I have great memories of Paul and we were so sad to hear of his passing at such a young age.

  5. Although our ‘little ‘ brother, Paul had a Big life. He was always the life of a party(that started wherever he was). A wonderful son, great brother and a loyal and enthusiastic friend.
    Everyone who knew him, has a Paul story and will tell it forever. He will keep us laughing forever.
    Love you Buddy.

  6. I had the opportunity to work indirectly with Paul for the last couple of years. I have nothing but great words to say about Paul. He was a very intelligent, hard working, humble man who made me laugh every time we spoke. I feel very fortunate to have been able to get to know Paul personally and he educated me with his expertise with finance. I pray all stay strong during this difficult time and if I learned one thing from Paul it would be to stay humble and enjoy life.

    • Even though our paths did not cross as often as one would hope, your ability to shine light in a room through laughter was beyond compare. Uncle Paul, your memory will always make me smile. You will be missed.

  7. This is so sad for our family Paul always brought a smile to your face and your heart. All his nieces and nephews loved him on sight and wanted to be with him where ever he was. I remember Mom and I having to drive him (3yrs old)from Port Alberti to Victoria (original Royal Jubilee)so he could be treated for his excema. we had to leave him there and go back a week later. The Malahat was mostly a gravel road in our little Morris Minor very scary drive with Paul crying most of the way. But he made up for those tears by bringing us all so many smiles and many laughs. Rest In Peace little brother we will love you forever

  8. My sincere condolences to Donna and the entire McAllister family. I have fond memories of Paul and truly enjoyed just sitting and sharing a joke or two with each other, his laugh so contagious.

    • I’m so sorry for your loss Donna.

  9. I am so sorry to be so far behind in things from the distance I now live from Canada… I just heard tonight (June 3rd, 2021) that Paul passed. To Donna please accept our late condolences and hope you are doing well.

  10. So sad to hear of Paul’s passing far too soon. I will always remember Paul as an energetic, enthusiastic and fun person who lived life to the max. There was always laughter when Paul was in the house! A great guy with a heart of gold. Deepest sympathies to Donna and all the family

  11. Donna and family… I don’t know what made me look up Paul tonight (July 30, 2022) but I just saw this. Paul always had a very special place in my heart and I have missed him over the years. My sincere condolences and he was a man that will never be forgotten or reproduced. He remains in my heart as a man of love, laughter, stories and friendship. With my love, always.

  12. So sorry to hear about Paul’s passing. We met in Kamloops and went on many adventures together. He was an awesome story teller and a loving man. The last time I saw him was 1982, 1983, when he surprised me with visits while I was getting my nursing degree. So sad that we never managed to met up again. Thank you, Paul, for the years we spent together. You will not be forgotten.
