Paul was born in Taber on June 24, 1965 to Peter and Willy Wynker. He attended the Vauxhall High School and shortly after began his twenty eight year career with Vauxhall Foods, working up to the position of Head of Maintenance. He was very well respected by his coworkers for his work ethic. Paul had to leave his position at the company due to health issues. This was a difficult time for him as he took great pride in his work.
Paul enjoyed mechanically restoring vehicles and selling them. His love of mechanics carried over into his work. He took great pride in solving problems and fixing the equipment at the plant. He was known for being a neat freak at work, in his home and all his vehicles reflect this as well . He liked things to be clean, neat and orderly.
Paul enjoyed camping. Waterton Lakes National Park was his favorite spot but he would also camp at local spots such as the Enchant park. He took his daughters with him as often as he could.
Paul was born into a Christian home and drew strength in his faith from watching ‘good Christian TV’. He loved the Lord and knew that there was a place in heaven waiting just for him.
Paul had a kind heart, great sense of humor and a gentle nature. He will be dearly missed.
