On Tuesday, March 8th, 2022, PAUL EDWARDS, loving husband and father of two children, passed away suddenly at the age of 70.
Paul was born in Blackpool, England and immigrated to Canada when he was just three. Paul owned his own business and then went to the Lethbridge Regional Hospital to work in the Maintenance and Planning departments, followed by his retirement in 2012. Paul was passionate about his work, but not as much as his family. After his retirement he opened Drunken Sailor with Loralee and they were part of a vibrant downtown.
Paul was preceded in death by his father Lawrence and his mother Doreen. His heart never quite healed from their loss. He is survived by his wife Loralee and two daughters Lisa (Chris) and Jodi (Pierre-Luc) and grandchildren Josh and Gabby. He is also survived by his sister Kathy (Gord), David (Mary-Anne) and Gary (Toni). Also very special to him were Loralee’s family, her Mom Bonnie (Gord), and siblings Sara, Jonathan, Joel, and Jason.
Paul loved people and he loved to cook. He loved caring and serving those he loved. He was happiest with a full house, serving food he had lovingly prepared. He had a blue-collar heart and an artist soul. He supported Loralee in everything and he was so proud of his daughters.
Paul was a gentle giant; a loving and caring man and he is already missed by so many. Although Paul did not die of kidney failure, he was lucky enough to receive one from his sister, he was passionate about organ donation. Please discuss your wishes with your family.
An open house will be held at TRIANON GALLERY (upstairs), 104 – 5 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Sunday, March 13 from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Please come and share a story or hug.
