Cherished grandfather of Liana, Lesley, Kyle, Cara, Regan, Conor, Taylor, Rory, Tegan, Brodie, Raissa, Peri, Declan, Rob, Greg, Jeff, Katie, Chloe and Keaghan and great grandfather of Aubrey, Braedon, Louie, Harper, Myles and Everett. Paul was born in Pointe-aux-Roches, ON, the fifth child of Rosaire Quenneville (1983) and Arise (Levesque) (1986). Dearest brother of Sr. Marie-Anne Quenneville osu, Margaret Murtagh (Joe, 2017), Simone Balsam (Stan), Claire Pitre (Reg, 2019), Jeanne Quenneville, and Thérèse Quenneville.

He will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews and extended family. Paul retired from teaching at Delhi District Secondary School in 1986 after teaching there for 32 years. He taught French and Physical Education and coached many students in football, basketball, volleyball and gymnastics. He spent the latter part of his career as a guidance counsellor and became Head of Student Services at DDSS. After retirement, Paul and Jennie (2012) enjoyed trips to Germany, British Columbia, Arizona and spent many winters in Florida. Paul’s number one passion in life was his family. He was always proud of his seven children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and he always looked forward to seeing everyone at family gatherings: the more, the merrier! His other passion was golf. He was a long time member of the Delhi Golf and Country Club, and he also wrote a weekly column for The Delhi News Record called “On The Green,” which featured the local golf scene. Six years ago he moved to London and became a member at The Oaks Golf and Country Club, where he met many new friends and enjoyed many more rounds of golf. Other pastimes included daily crossword puzzles, walking, old movies, reading and telling jokes. Laughter was his medicine! Heaven has gained the sweetest soul. Paul was adored by his family. He was caring, a good listener, and a wonderful friend. He will be forever in our hearts.
