Lawerence Paul Heyman
Heyman, Lawrence Paul
It is with sadness we accept the passing of Lawrence Paul Heyman, 61, of Truro, Nova Scotia after his ambush by cancer. We are comforted knowing that he has now found peace. He will be dearly missed. Paul was born in Pembroke, ON in 1955. He was a graduate of St. Paul’s High School, Winnipeg, MN and of Algonquin College, Ottawa, ON. His working life began in business with NCR in Toronto, and continued in Nova Scotia with Maritime Computers Limited, Digital Equipment Corporation, Compaq Computers and finally IMP IT Solutions. He felt it gave him a marvellous perspective on the evolution of the business computer industry over the past 36 years. It was quite the ride. Early in life, Paul found his passion in the outdoors. During his younger years he was an avid skier, tournament bass fisher, and outdoorsman. His best friend always and forever is his wife, Donna, together over 34 very good years they raised 2 children, enjoyed life on a hobby farm in Shubenacadie, then in a house in the town of Truro, had many lovely near and far travel adventures, and built a cottage with a porch over a lake. He was very proud of his two sons (rightly so!) and nothing made him happier than to spend time with them. In the early years it was the hockey rink and later ones at the cottage. Also bringing him great joy there were the hours spent day break and sundown in his bass boat (ahhh, Peace!). More recently he pursued his passion for photography in earnest. Many of his prints were a source of pride for him and his family. As Paul’s photo art outgrew the walls of the family home, he showcased it on his website (www.page43photography), photo contests and his showing at the Marigold Gallery in May 2015. His pictures continually amaze us as he brought his artistic eye to the photograph and revealed something new in the everyday or the exotic. Landscape photography combines the love of the outdoors with the camera and TRAVEL. Now we had the combination that sparked fire under his feet! Unfortunately, life got in the way as he had plans for a photo tour of Spain this May. Paul will join his mother Margaret (Betty) and brother, James (Jimmy). He is survived by his wife Donna, sons David and Jeffrey, and father Jim, all of Truro; Aunt Colleen Daley, Oshawa ON; sisters-in-law Linda (Andy) Nette, Port Williams; and Kathryn Spracklin, Vancouver; nieces Hannah (Greg) van Popering, Farrell (Grey) Lloyd, Alison (Rich) Weihers, Hillary (Brian) Nette, and nephews Ian and Oban. Reception / visitation will be held 4:00 – 7:00 pm Friday, February 19 at the Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow Street, Truro, NS. The Celebration of Paul’s Life will commence at 7:00 pm Friday, February 19.
