Paul Bennett, was a wonderful & generous man, who would always have a smile and a positive word to say to lift your spirits or make you laugh.

He always wore a smiled and was always a pleasure to work with and when you saw he was one of the nurses on you thought, tonight’s going to be a good night! This is how I will remember my co-worker and friend Paul. 

I knew Paul when he first met his wife, and I saw their love grow and how much they were meant to be and how devoted they were to each other...you only see love like me that in fairy tales...with that kind of love & devotion. 

Over time, I unfortunately lost touch with Paul and his wife ( for privacy, for now I won’t disclose her name), as in nursing, we go onto to new jobs and different hospitals, but our collegues are always friends & in our hearts. We go thru things that most professions don’t go thru, deep in the trenches & that bonds you for life. I am deeply shocked and saddened by Paul’s sudden & tragic death and I want to help him when I know he would need it most. That’s to help his wife & two young boys! 

Paul had a mission and wanted to be a nursing manager, and he did it ...his hard work & dedication to our calling had him managing the OR at Peace Arch Hospital. I know he will greatly be missed by all the staff and all his colleagues because really good managers, well they don’t make them as good as Paul! They broke the mold!! 

I want to give his friends,colleagues, other HCP, allied staff and the community a chance to honour Paul. And help his family when they are going to need it most ...if this tragedy can happen to a wonderful man, father, husband,son, brother and family guy such as Paul. It surely can happen to anyone of us at any given moment in time. 

-Please help Paul and give back to a nurse,  who gave so much to our communities ( Peace Arch & VGH) in his many years of nursing.
-To a hockey coach, who thought to volunteer his time and step up to help kids. Teaching them about sportsmanship, the love of hockey and pride of giving it all that you got, win or lose!
-To a husband & father father who left this world way to soon and a family who is in sudden grief and shock and that can use our love & support right now.

Your Generosity & contribution would be greatly appreciated. All money raised will go directly to the Bennett Family.

Please help  & share this campaign.

Regards,

Hi Everyone,
I want to thank you all for the incredible response to the gofundme campaign for Paul and his family.
We reached goal !!
Wow, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every single one of you who stepped up to contribute and offer your sincere condolences and beautiful stories of Paul. I know the kind words helped them through some of the saddest days, giving them strength that they weren’t alone in their grief and that they were supported. Your amazing gifts of financial support to Darlene and the boys are beautiful gift of love, kindness and compassion. Thank you so much!

At this point I am assigning the gofundme account over to Darlene Bennett, Paul’s widow so she may access the funds as she see’s fit.
She is Paul’s beneficiary, just so you know this is a requirement of gofundme, for me to publicly let all the donars be notified that the funds will start to be dispersed & who I am going to let access them.
I have been talking to Paul’s brother in law Gordon Arthur and he will assist in the process w/Darlene to deal with access to the funds.

Bless you all for supporting Paul’s family through this most difficult and tragic time. Let us all pray that one day they get closure and that justice is served.

Warmest Regards,
Tammy Larson

Paul Bennett was a good man.

He was 47, a father, partner, brother, brother in law, son, son in law, minor hockey coach, nurse, friend and a really nice guy.

Such a small word nice, but how many truly nice people do you know.

Paul was a guy who would teach your kids to skate and pass and be part of a team.

Paul was a guy who would hold your hand in the hospital, while making a joke to make you smile.

Paul was also a member of many surgical teams that have saved many residents in the area.

Paul was a friend who would help you move, but you had to feed and water him.

If Paul touched your life, count yourself lucky.

All funds raised will go to Paul’s family.

Thank You Again Family, Friends, Paul’s colleagues, all the HCP’s & allied staff, Paul’s former patients , the entire community & the media for being so kind.

I especially love you telling how you knew Paul in your donations, truly inspiring.

His family is surrounded by extended family and friends and they are coping as best they can given the nature of this tragic situation. They wish to thank everyone for your kindness, generosity and gracious memories of Paul.

Please continue to share this gofundme page.

From the bottom of my heart ,
Sincerely,
Tammy Larson
