It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dear Paul. He died suddenly on Wednesday, July 15, 2015, surrounded by family and friends. Paul always lived life to the fullest and cherished time spent with loved ones. Paul was born on November 8, 1953, in Sturgeon, Prince Edward Island, and developed a strong work ethic from his parents, Harvey Jamieson and the late Mary Louise (nee Creed). He will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 27 years, Marilyn (nee Boudreau) and darling daughter, Jenna; brothers Bobby (Alinda), Philip (Nancy), Dennis; sisters Linda (Donald McCarron), Mary Frances (Jackie Collings); brother in-law Bobby Boudreau (Debbie); sisters-in law Linda (Vernon Pothier), Carol (Christian Surette); nieces, nephews, and grand-nieces and nephews; a large circle of friends in Halifax and Prince Edward Island. Paul attended Saint Mary’s and Dalhousie Universities, and graduated with degrees in Sociology and Social Work. He went on to work as a parole officer with Correctional Services Canada, retiring after 25 years. Paul had a passion for fighting for the rights of all persons with disabilities. He worked tirelessly for changes in provincial codes, transportation, and the Human Rights Act. He became involved in numerous committees and community organizations. He served on Disabled Individuals Alliance League (D.I.A.L.); League for Equal Opportunity (L.E.O); and 1992 Nova Scotia Task Force on Primary Health Care. He was an integral part of the development of Peer Partnership in Halifax which later evolved into the Metro Resource Centre for Independent Living (MRCIL). He was also a member for the National Advisory Committee for Persons with Disabilities.
Paul was introspective and outgoing, he was something different to each person he knew. He entered every relationship with an open mind and an open heart, and he could always find enough common ground to build on. He could talk and tell stories, or sit quietly and watch the grass grow. He valued his freedom, he valued his family, and he valued his friends. Paul had a way of making small talk feel very large, he could tell you about his hopes, dreams, fears and wishes without mentioning them and in doing so he could help you understand yours. He made us all feel important, and showed us how to do the same for others. Paul embraced a life many of us would not have been strong enough to endure. He built a loving family and fought to help those of us who needed it to build the courage to take on the challenges that every life provides. Paul Jamieson was bold enough to dance with the devil and good enough to sit at a table with God himself.
A special thanks to the Halifax Infirmary IMCU team who provided Paul with excellent care and compassion during his final days in the hospital. The family will be receiving visitors at Ferguson Logan Funeral Home in Montague, P.E.I. on Monday, July 20th, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Funeral will be at St. Paul’s Church, Sturgeon P.E.I. at 11:00 am on Tuesday July 21st, 2015.
In lieu of flowers Paul’s family would appreciate donations made to the Rick Hansen Foundation.
