Paul Clifford Darnell, 74, of Hanna, Alberta, passed away peacefully on June 4th, 2022.
Paul leaves behind his beloved wife Dianne of 53 years, his loving children Von (Kate) and Bob (Jen), his sisters Linda Campbell (Fred) and Beverly Lee (Harold), nieces and nephews Cindy (Phil), Steve (Bev), David, Janine (Brian), Brian, Pauline (Gary), Jeff, Cheryl (Bob) and their children. He is predeceased by his parents, John and Jean Darnell, Mother-in-Law Helen Brown, Brother-in-Law Ray Brown and his wife Pat Brown.
He was a loving husband and cherished best friend to Dianne, constantly working to make her smile, and to enrich their lives at every turn. He was a strong support and faithful friend to his children, extended family and friends.
Paul was confident and courageous in life, having worked diligently to excel in many areas. Paul and Dianne ran Inspirations Hairstyling in Elora and Guelph for many years, which they enjoyed immensely. Later in life, he immersed himself in biblical studies, and served as a chaplain (with a minor in IT support) with Christian Resort Ministries for many happy years in Texas. Paul's good nature and sense of humour were a boon to all who knew him.
Throughout his life, he was an incredible example of what being an honest, hard working man was. He was kind, thoughtful, and generous in nature, while being true to himself. Paul's memory will be cherished by his family.
Paul's memorial service will be announced at a later date.
