A third generation Nova Scotia Funeral Director, Paul began his funeral service career apprenticing under the guidance of both his grandfather and father at Mundle's Funeral Home in Pugwash, learning the values and sensitivity offered to all the clients they served.
In 1989, Paul purchased Mundle's Funeral Home, Pugwash from his parents and continued with the traditions that had been established by his family. In 1991, he purchased Coulter's Funeral Home, Tatamagouche.
Then in 1993, with a great deal of support from the community, he began the construction of Colchester Community Funeral Home in Truro, opening the doors to the public in February of 1994. With the invaluable contributions of both Milton Hayman and David Johnson of Truro, the response and support from Truro and surrounding areas has been humbling and we continue each day to offer courteous services to our clients.
Paul sold both Mundle's Funeral Home and Coulter's Funeral Home in 2005 to allow him time, to better concentrate his efforts at Colchester Community Funeral Home. Those valuable lessons taught to him by his family, have been carried forward to the exemplary staff here at the funeral home.
2011 marks Paul's 24th year serving the residents of Nova Scotia as a funeral director.
