Paul was a great person. He was fun to be with and well liked by friends and coworkers .
Paul , Janis and myself were part of the Mitchells Corners [ Zion] gang growing up . Many parties at the Shmyr homestead. Paul was a career City of Oshawa employee at Forestry , Civic Fields , Union Cemetery. Parks and Traffic . Paul and I worked together at Traffic . The Brothers were often seen together patrolling the City of Oshawa , keeping it safe, We had planned to retire together.

My memories of Paul go back to days of public school in the little community of Zion; today known as Mitchell’s Corner, then on to high school at Courtice.

On behalf of entire Chamberlin family I would like to express our condolences.
