In loving memory ~
We the family of Paul Lanza Bresson are heartbroken to announce his passing on Oct 13, 2022 surrounded in his final moments, as he was in life, with so much love.
Paul was born Oct 18,1957 in Glacé bay Nova Scotia to the late Carl and Gertrude Bresson. He was one of Seven siblings Carol Ann (Late Donald Campbell) Dominion, Joey (Justine) Ontario, Angie (Tony McNeil Ontario) Lillian (Alden Antonello) Sydney, Bernard (Geraldine) Sydney.
Paul is also survived by an extended family in Cape Breton that are mourning his loss, Brother in law Guido Giebitz (Sydney), Niece Kerry (Sandy Small ) Sydney and Sweet Erin. As well numerous Nieces and nephews.
A Special mention to his Nephew Donald Campbell (Tana) Dominion.
Paul was predeceased by his parents, brother Cameron (Michelle), sister Yvonne in infancy and infant son Paul.
Left behind to miss him are his wife Rita, son Jason (Teri) Fort St John, son Kyle (Stephanie) Pittsburg Pennsylvania , Daughter Krysta Fort McMurray.
Paul’s pride and joy were his three grand babies Noah, Andrew and Emma.
Since 1979 Pauls career has been working in mining. In 1979 Paul started his career working at Devco and in 1996 moved to Campbell River where over the next 26 years he worked at Quinsam Coal and Nyrstar mine.
His passion for his job was seen in his dedication to his many roles including supervisor and the safety department where his passion was hoping to make any impact on helping the ” boys ” be safe to go home to their families.
He was so proud to be part of the mine rescue team as well as in later years training the team with such excitement.
We now as a family must learn how to go forward without this gentle spirit in our lives.
A Celebration of Life will be held at The Maritime Heritage Museum on Thursday Oct 20, 2022, 2 PM. Interment will be in Cape Breton at a later date.
You fought such a hard fight to stay with us with dignity and grace. Please rest and know that you are missed more than words can say.
We love you.
