GRANT, William “Paul”

October 26, 1941 - May 17, 2020

Years after being diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia, Paul died peacefully at the age of 78 on May 17 with his wife Helen by his side. He is survived by Helen and their three children Alison (Mark), Meredith (Todd), and Evan. Paul is also survived by his four granddaughters (Alexandra, Elise, Erica, and Katherine), his two siblings Linda (Michael) and Bob (Lynda), and brother-in-law Sandy (Monica). The family wants to thank the staff of Riverside Glen for their compassionate care throughout his time there. Paul lived his life with humility, generosity and greatness of spirit, and he touched many lives with his kindness, joie de vivre, and fantastic sense of humour. Please join us in raising a glass, or “quaffing” a beer, to this special soul. Paul will be missed greatly by all of his friends and family. There will be no formal ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations are appreciated by the family to either: Primary Progressive Aphasia program, Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation. Please visit and indicate “as directed by next of kin/obituary” or call 416-603-5300. Autism Dog Services. Please visit and choose Donate Now/In Memoriam.
