P. Eng., 1942 – 2022
It is with deep sorrow and sad hearts that we announce the passing of a great man. Our dearest Paul Louis Rodrigues, professional engineer, on January 8th, 2022, has regrettably left us to be closer to God.
Son of the late Manuel and Maria ‘Mary’ Rodrigues. Paul will be dearly missed by his sisters; Margaret Postma (Gary), Regina Garvin (late Tom) and Annie D’Cunha (late Dominic), as well as his numerous nieces, nephews and other loved ones.
Paul’s acts and good deeds have left us with a legacy that will last for generations to come. Never once short of giving a compliment, his contagious laugh would brighten the mood and spirit of everyone in and around the room. Paul always made everyone else’s needs and interests his first and foremost priority. Paul was a genuine gentleman who carried himself with class, while maintaining an unparalleled caring soul.
Paul loved deeply and unconditionally, never hesitating to help anyone in need, heedlessly putting himself out for the joy and betterment of others. His simple presence was uplifting while always making a positive impact on all those around him.
A beloved Son, Brother, Uncle, Great Uncle, Godfather, Brother In-Law, Dear Friend and Hero; Paul Rodrigues, your passing makes the world less of a beautiful, intellectual place. We will always miss your loving warmth and cherish the glorious memories you bestowed upon us forever. We will always love you Paul.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
