Philip George Paull

Born September 15th 1924 to George and Elizabeth Paull at the small village of Hooke in Dorset, England. Having two older sisters he was the youngest of three siblings. George was village blacksmith and Elizabeth was later on the village postmistress. During the war years he served in the R.A.F. as a flight engineer on the Lancaster aircraft. After the war he met and married Joy Wiggins. They took up dairy farming until they sold out and moved in 1955, along with their three children, to Victoria B.C. where a fourth, Tim, was born. Here they had a berry farm until 1963 when the lure of the Peace country took them north to Fort St. John, where they raised beef cattle until retirement in 1989. Dad’s love of gardening took them back to Vancouver Island where they purchased an acreage at Cassidy and created a floral paradise with hundreds of rhododendron bushes, exotic trees, shrubs and other delights. In time this became too much for them to maintain and they moved to Quesnel to be with family. It’s here that Mom passed away in 2013 and Dad on November 7th 2016. They are survived by children Ron (Pat) of Quesnel, Valerie (Gordon) Sherriff of Courtenay, Chris (Cathy) and Tim (MaeAnne) of Fort St. John, numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. A celebration of life and sprinkling of the ashes will be held at the family farm, in Fort St. John, Friday July 7th at 2pm. For more information phone Chris at 250 787 9071 or Tim at 250 263 9950.
