In Loving Memory
Mr. Paul Schooley of La Salette, passed away peacefully at the VON Sakura House, Woodstock on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 in his 86th year. Paul was a 3rd Degree Member of the Delhi-LaSalette Knights of Columbus Co. #5095. Paul always made time for family and friends which he considered the most important things in life. He worked hard, could fix anything, and was always there to help anyone who needed it. Paul was an avid reader, loving history and trivia, and enjoyed camping, golfing and woodworking. He created the most detailed and intricate birdhouses and models. His wonderful sense of humour and contagious laugh will be missed by family and friends.
