Dudley Paul, born in Princeton B.C. November 15, 1930 passed away August 2, 2013.
Survived by his loving wife Leny of 55 years, two sons, Norman and Danny, as well as many siblings, in-laws, cousins, neices and nephews.
An excellent skier throughout his life Dudley was one of the first up Silver Star. Early skiing included competition ski jumping in Revelstoke, Kelowna, and Sun Valley Idaho.
Dudley had a successful 35 year career working for the Ministry of Transportation Paving Branch. He loved operating a grader in his early years and became Foreman to a large crew and was known for hiring the first female flag persons. Many of the highways we travel today were first paved by his crew.
Settling in Vernon for 30 years, he and Leny built two houses, they eventually retired to Salmon Arm building a third house where he enjoyed many years of working on projects throughout the property.
One of his favorite pass times was cutting fire wood to keep the house very very warm in the winter.
Never short on words, Dudley could make any stranger feel at home. His gift of the gab and infectious humour and smile could light up any room.
He will be greatly missed by his family and many many friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Venter and staff, Salmon Arm Hospital, Hillside Village and B.C. Ambulance services for all the help they provided over the years.
At his request there will be no service and in lieu of flowers please tip a beer in his honor, he would like that.
