Daniel “Paul” Grace
It is with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the passing of Daniel “Paul” Grace on Feb 1st, 2021 at the Lakeridge Health Centre Oshawa, Ontario after a hard-fought battle with illness over the past couple of years.
Paul was the first born to proud parents Dan and Irene Grace on October 17th, 1965 in New Waterford. Paul grew up and enjoyed his younger years with many close friends and after graduation, Paul moved to the Oshawa area where he would reside for his adult life. Paul worked at Allied Conveyers Ltd. in Pickering and would move to work for Loblaws Distribution Centre in Ajax for the remainder of his working life.
Paul was a loving and caring man who enjoyed watching football and sitting around a campfire making people laugh. He was always such a happy go lucky person and loved nothing more than his two granddaughters Alyvia and Dahlia. He would have a smile from ear to ear when he would speak of them. He was a wonderful spouse, stepfather and father to his beloved cat. Paul also enjoyed taking vacation trips back home to Cape Breton to visit his family and friends in New Waterford during the summer months or holidays. One of Paul’s favorite visits back home was when he got to take Lori for her first trip around the Cabot Trail. Paul and Lori also enjoyed their visit to the Miners Museum in Glace Bay with his two brothers, Stephen and Brian and their family’s where they did the underground experience.
Surviving is his partner Lori Ireland of Oshawa, Ontario, step son Mitch (Ashley) Ireland and granddaughters Alyvia and Dahlia, mother-in-law Carol Stinson, his two brothers Stephen Grace (Kim) of New Waterford and Brian (Carol) Grace of Timberlea, N.S. Nieces Lauren, Olivia and Madison and nephew Mitchell. Also, his extended family Evelyn Tighe and her sons John Blair (Ashley) Tighe of New Waterford and Troy (Cheryl) Tighe of Edmonton AB.
