Paul Talbot was born in Atikokan Ontario on Saturday September 15th1962. He was number 7 out of 11 children, having 6 sisters and 4 brothers alongside him. He was six months old when the family moved to St. Leon Manitoba where he began his schooling and found his love for soccer and baseball. He loved running and would often race the bus home to the farm to try to beat his siblings to his mother’s fresh baked bread. He loved his mother’s cooking and would re-make her recipes at home for his kids to try. He also enjoyed growing his own veggies and used them for canning and cooking. He loved working with his hands and got a job with Manitoba Pool at 17 years old where he remained for 40 years travelling across southern Manitoba fixing elevators and finished his career with Viterra. Some of his favourite things to do was spending quality time with his kids whether that was golfing, fishing or hunting with his boys or coaching his daughter to improve her softball skills and being her number 1 fan, rarely missing a game. He was always excited when fall season came around because that meant he could take his grandchildren hunting, passing down stories and skills of falling asleep in the bush as the deer walked by and what can be used as toilet paper when there is none around, his personal favourite was the lining of his pockets as he would come home with pockets missing. Paul loved carpenter projects so completely renovating the house was a fun project for him and Coalleen, it brought them closer together as they became a team, trusting each other and completing the house into a home. Paul wouldn’t hesitate to help anyone in need no matter the situation or time. He was an amazing son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He will be missed by his family and the community in where he made many friends and memories. We love you so much dad and until we meet again enjoy heavens coffee and cookies as you tell your hunting stories.
