Paul William Woolgar

October 31, 1931 - April 26, 2014


Paul was born in Collingwood, Ontario on October 31/31 to William & Hilda Woolgar. Paul moved to the United States in 1934 to spend his working years. Paul was previously married to N.C. Woodworth (Woolgar) from the United States. Paul re-married on  September 15, 1961 to Helen Marie Andersen, of Spokane, Washington. Paul & Helen moved to Kaslo in 1991 upon his retirement.


Paul was an electro mechanical technical & construction electrician for 35 years for the Boeing Company of Seattle Way in Washington state. Also served as a medic in the Army of the United States from July 1951 to July 1957. Paul always enjoyed a lively conversation when visiting the doctor's office ~ sharing his medical experiences. Paul was always interested in anything electrical and his home was wired like a Boeing 747! Paul had a photographic memory and always enjoyed very technical conversations. Being a true Halloween baby, Paul especially enjoyed this particular day, each and every year dressing up at his home to give out treats to the kids.


Helen predeceased Paul in October 2007 due to a car accident on October 5, 2007 in Balfour, B.C. Paul is survived by his sister Joan (Don) Kabel of East Aurora, NY, a brother Richard Woolgar in New York state, and 6 children David Woolgar from Grand Prairie, Texas, Christopher & Jaime Woolgar from Hornell, NY, Richard Woolgar from Almond, NY, Faye Wickwire from Tacoma,  Wa & Laurel Turner-Studley, from Almond, NY.  There are also a number of grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews.Paul will be laid to rest beside his “Helen”. No reception


Sincere thanks to the emergency nurses at the Victorian Health Centre in Kaslo. Special thanks to Dr's Magier & Burkholder, the nurses, staff and the volunteer New Denver Hospice Society for all their special care and compassion you gave to Paul during his sudden & short illness. You are all truly amazing and your special kindness to Paul will never be forgotten. Thank you again ~ Jill Braley, Kaslo

I would like to personally thank Robert Sylvester for all his help in arranging Paul’s April 30th burial at the Kaslo Cemetery. Robert is a very kind and caring man, and his years of experience certainly shows.Robert has a special way of helping grieving families and for that I am truly thankful. I remember Paul chatting with Robert at length at his wife Helen’s Oct 5/2007 funeral. Paul was so pleased and admired Robert’s attention to detail. Thank you again Robert. Jill Braley ~ Kaslo.
