You have left so many memories in my life. One I will never forget which is how people would define you is, when me and Becky were little and around Christmas we would always forget to bring my father his gift. You took me aside one day not long after and offered to take me to the mall, pick something out for my father and give it to him. Although I really did have the gift, you didn't give it a second thought to offer to pay so I would feel good, my father would feel good and everyone would be happy over the holidays. It may be a silly memory but it has stuck with me for all these years because that's the kind of man you were, would give all you have even if it's nothing physical to make sure others are okay. It's something I aspire to be more like.

I also remember when we were in the backyard at my dad's old place on Glenview Ave. and you guys parks the boogie van in the yard so we could all play in it. When it was just me in the van you came over and we chatted and I called you Paddy Laddy. You shared with me that they always use to call you this growing up, I asked if I could call you Paddy Laddy my 3rd Daddy you replied with the biggest hug and a kiss on my head. ❤️

I love you Paddy and miss you dearly. I know you are watching over all of us down here. I miss you, may you rest peacefully. ❤️

Tom Williams was Paddy best friend growing up...this is his memory of Paddy

When we were kids he couldn’t wake up early so if we were going somewhere real early he would tie s string on his wrist and throw it out the window and I would come by and pull on the string to yank his arm to wake up.
Good old alarm. Lol. Funny.

Paddy and my brother Tom were best friends growing up in the village. If you know what the village is, than you must have been part of our crew. As Toms younger sister, I was always trying to keep up with paddy and Tom. I can’t tell you all the adventures we had on this site because there is no statute of limitations on the criminal code but let’s just say we had a lot of fun. Paddy always took care of me like a younger sister and I recall one memory when paddy found out that me and my friend rode our bikes out to pushlich lake to go camping for the weekend. What I didn’t tell you is that we were 11 yrs old. Two young girls by themselves. Paddy and Kevin Barnes showed up the next day and rode there bikes 20 km to come check on us. He was worried that something would happen to us and they camped out with us. It didn’t turn out so well for me the next day when my Jim showed up on his motorcycle and say the tent and paddy and Kevin and thought we were up to no good. I got grounded for the week for telling my parents I was staying at my friends house and vice verse when we really went out camping for the weekend. What my Jim and everyone else came to realize was that paddy knew the danger that me and my friend were oblivious too but paddy thought otherwise. I think that is a trait that paddy carried with him his whole life. I remember him as kind, compassionate and caring. His heart was bigger than his head. He would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. I’m so glad you were in our life and although we didn’t grow up with a lot of money, we were rich in memories and friendship. And that, money can’t buy. Rest In Peace

Was sad to hear of this passing . Paddy was my childhood friend in public school. Spent many years running around the village together with other friends . Always a big hug and hi over the years when I'd run into him . Was sweet , funny and caring in my eyes . I'm sorry to all his family for his loss and especially his children. May he rest in peace .

As I sit here and think of you so many memories play through my head. You were the first person I drove a car with. The big green wagon... what a beast! I remember barely reaching the pedals in the days of Hoover park and you yelling at me GO! GO! GO!,me hitting the gas,with my dad running to try to catch us lol gravel and dust kicking up everywhere! ...
Or after I got busted for smoking and you were the first to ask me for a cigarette and tell me how bad it was for me... as you shared that smoke with me...
Being in my wedding party...
Babysitting for me so I could go see Aerosmith...
And who could forget going to get you your first touch screen phone and learning the ins and outs? Especially "Giggle it!" LOL uncle Paddy, you mean "Google it!" HA! "Tickle it!"
And of course our many talks... some deep and meaningful, many silly and laughing, but always from the heart. Who's gonna call me "Yo-londa Chan-tal!" now? It just wont be the same anymore...
The list goes on with memories. I could write a novel and more...

I love you Uncle Paddy, forever and always, today, tomorrow, and until we meet again,
Your niece Loni xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

RIP, may you be truly happy in eternity, and give nan, poppy John, and poppy my love too

I remember all the amazing times we spent together. I have so many memories with you it's hard to pick just one, but one memory I loved was when you lived with us and every day after school or work you would say hi baby how was ur day? And give me a kiss on the cheek. And then would say I hope your room is clean and I would be like of course uncle paddy its clean dont worry. I loved those days of coming home and your smiling cheer full face was there to welcome me. I miss you so much uncle paddy. I love you so much. Untill we meet again. Never forgotten and always loved.
