In Loving Memory

Paul Albert Hamoline

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Paul Hamoline, known as Paul. Paul leaves behind his wonderful son Heath and daughter-in-law Cindi. Paul was very proud of his granddaughters; Schezel, Amanda and Kayla and his great grandchildren Kayden, Bodhi, Hunter, Ember, Thomas, and Mathew. He is also survived by siblings Yvonne (Lorne), Laurette, Maurice (MaryLou) and David (Linda), sister-in-law Frieda and nieces and nephews, Christa, Matthew, Nicole, Ben, Anthony, Christopher, Andrew, Paul, Lela, Nadine, and Michelle. He is predeceased by his parents Albert and Gladys Hamoline and brother Perry.

Paul was accomplished in many things and was a master at heavy duty mechanics, becoming the Mechanical Superintendent for the northern region of BC. Later he owned and operated a pop shop, second hand store, apartments in downtown Smithers, was a councilman for the Village of Telkwa, cooked on charter boats and many other things. He loved having a huge shop to work in and helped many people to fix things.

Paul loved to take pictures, to listen to music, to search for historical treasures and walk out in nature. Doing things on the spur of the moment. Going camping at 9pm., having a party that wasn’t planned, laying on the porch to watch the stars, stirring everybody up and then sneaking out of the room and going to bed, being out on the water, walking along the railroad tracks. 

He loved history and his favorite books and tv shows were all about history, restoration, and treasure hunting.  

Paul believed in “living life fully” and proclaimed many times that he “loved life!”.

The family will hold a private grave side service at Evergreen Cemetery, in Grand Forks, BC on Saturday April 27th at 2pm.

    Paul always tried to live life through “rose colored glasses”, one of the saddessed memories I have was the night he phoned me and said, “I lost my rose colored glasses”. Now that you are gone Paul, I feel like I’ve lost mine too. Luckily, I know they make more of them where you are and you’ll have mine waiting for me at the gate.
