It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Paul Norton, age 69, peacefully at his residence in Exeter on October 22, 2014 with his loving wife of 26 years, Judy (Mock); his daughter Heidi and his constant 4 legged companion Molly by his side.
Paul leaves behind his daughters Heidi Norton (Grandson Kaiden) and Holly Norton, both of London.
Paul will be deeply missed by his loving brother and best friend, Wayne and sister-in-law Wendy of London. Nieces Amanda (Dan) Hendriksen and their children Ben & Megan of Thorndale and Jill (Joel) Gillard of London. Predeceased by his parents Bill and Lorraine.
Paul enjoyed life. He enjoyed his hockey, Nascar, snowmobiling and had a passion for travel. He loved the cottage at Windy Hill but nothing made him happier than spending time with Judy, Molly and his friends and family. Paul was a high pressure pipeline welder for over 35 years at T.W. Johnstone in London. Not being one to sit still he also drove for Huron Tractor after retirement.
To Dr. Teeple, Staff at CCAC, the PSW’s, Physiotherapist and Nursing Staff – you all played an important roll in making Paul’s life more manageable. Your kindness, dedication and wonderful care was appreciated and will always be remembered.
A special thank you to our Dear Friends for your love and support. Your continuous acts of kindness, care and concern, especially over the past few months, including the visits, phone calls and the many wonderful meals were so appreciated by both Paul and I and your thoughtfulness will be etched forever in my memory. We could not have made this journey without you and my heart will be forever grateful.
At Paul’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral service. Cremation has taken place.
If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to ALS Research would be greatly appreciated.
