It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Paul Sunderland on Friday, August 5, 2022, at the age of 68. He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Candace (nee Clarke), and their three children Adrian (Lauren), Erin (Ryan), and Brad (Jason). He will be sorely missed by his beloved grandchildren Clark and Cadence. He leaves behind his mother Margaret, and three siblings Mel, Terry (Kim), and Janice (Brian).
Paul was a bright, active, and social person throughout his life. He was a proud graduate of the Royal Military College, class of 1976, in the rank of Lieutenant, earning his Bachelor of Engineering degree. He had a successful and rewarding career, largely as an executive in telecommunications and software development.
Paul was an avid golfer, who cherished many golf trips with friends, particularly playing St. Andrews in Scotland. He was a member of the Oakville Curling Club, playing in several leagues. He enjoyed the game immensely, including the strategy and comradery with fellow curlers. As a loving husband, Paul gave Candace ballroom dance lessons as a gift, which turned into a 14-year adventure as ballroom dancers. They participated in many competitions, most notably in New York City. He was a man of many talents.
He loved spending time with his family at the cottage, Cricklewood. He enjoyed boating, fishing off the dock, and relaxing at the sandy beach.
Paul was a natural problem solver, taking on all of life’s challenges with a positive attitude. He was known for his witty sense of humour, loving nature, and logical approach. He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
A public visitation will be held on August 24, 2022, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., at Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West in Oakville. A service will be held at the Glen Abbey United Church at a time to be determined in September. These details will be updated when available.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ian Anderson House would be appreciated.
