Obituary for Paul Destrey Neary

Paul has found his Shangri-la!
He peacefully passed away surrounded by “The Love of his life” Joyce (Foster), his son Ryan (Orion), with his wife Yen (Nguyen), and our beautiful grandchildren Hunter and Scarlett.
He was MUSIC-professional drummer, and teacher.
He was MAGIC-The Great Schlep, and Toytown Puppets.
He was MINISTRY-Pastor Emeritus-Knox United, and New St. Paul’s United.
Paul touched the lives of many, sharing his love of family, his knowledge, his love of the Lord, and definitely his sense of humour. Special thanks to the staff at Mackenzie Health Long Term Care for their gentle care and support, and to Marshall Funeral Home.
