Paul Hutchinson

Obituary of Paul Anthony Hutchinson

June 10, 2023, Paul Anthony Hutchinson died peacefully and with his usual grace in the arms of Patricia (nee Juhlke), his wife for 55 years. He was 75. Their children, Mary Delora Hutchinson (Stephen Crone) and Douglas Hutchinson and granddaughter, Sophia Delora Crone 15, were close by.  Paul’s sister, Dr. Alix Young (Roger) of Cambridge, Ontario was with him a few hours earlier. All his life, Paul loved, honored, and cared for his own and Patricia’s family and
extended family, friends, colleagues and students.

Born in Calgary, Paul lived in the same victorian house near Grimsby for 54 years. He worked at Proctor and Gamble in Hamilton and Toronto, initially as a Chemical Analyst then as a Project Manager.

Paul was an exceptional human being. He had a gifted mind and a loving, generous spirit. He was always keen to do his part. Paul enjoyed hiking, canoeing, and he learned to fly a plane. He was an enthusiastic traveller. He loved English and French poetry. He was so pleased to teach students in ESL and tutor in Maths, English Literature, and Conversational French.

Paul was happy, fit and busy. He had not smoked in 40 years so the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer was a shock.

Friday July 21, at 6 pm, a memorial service will take place at Tallman Funeral Homes (3277 King St Vineland). Family will greet visitors afterward in the Fireside Room.

In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to your local refugee shelter or McNally Hospice, Grimsby.
