Paul Lange passed away at home on September 24, 2018 at the age of 94.
He was predeceased by his parents and seventeen brothers and sisters. He was most recently predeceased by his eldest son J. Thomas Lange on August 23, 2018.
Paul is survived by his loving wife Rosa and son Michael Lange.
Paul immigrated to Canada in 1952, settling in Black Creek to begin with. A year later Rosa joined him, and they were married on December 19, 1953. After getting married and having various jobs they finally settled in Campbell River in 1958 where Paul started working at the Pulp Mill. Over the years Paul and Rosa purchased “The Knowles Trailer Park”. They expanded the trailer park and renamed it “The Quinsam Mobile Home Park”. In 1984 Paul retired from the mill and he and Rosa were able to travel the world together.
As time went on Paul wasn’t so able to travel but he loved his home. He took great joy in tending his garden and enjoying the ocean view.
The family would like to thank Dr. Meckin and the nurses at Alder Medical Clinic for caring for Paul over the years.
A private family service was held at the Elk Falls Cemetery.
In lieu of Flowers donations may be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation, in Paul’s name.
