KARN, Paul “P.K.” David – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Paul David Karn, in his 57th year, in a single vehicle accident in Bruce County on Saturday, December 14, 2019.
Paul was born and raised in Guelph and was known to many as P.K. He was an exceptionally hard-working and dedicated employee at Cascade Canada, Ltd. His passions and interests included tinkering on his 1954 Ford Mercury Custom Car, listening to the Tragically Hip or Hawksley Workman and Marillion, canoeing and fishing in the Nottawasaga River with fellow brothers Bones and Batman, photography, doodling, acquiring antiques and quirky collectables, especially his Batman collection. He loved mountain bike riding and gazing into the night sky with his telescope and he loved spoiling his cat.
Paul will forever be loved and missed by his wife Wendy (née Hannan) of 20 years. Dear and loving father of Crystal Gray and Carmella Thompson and supportive step-father to Jeffrey and Jason Thiessen. Paul was a loving grandpa to Gabriel, Lily and Tyler Gray and Cooper and Hadley Thiessen. Survived by his brothers Joe and Randy Karn and by his sister Kim Cutting. Uncle Paul will be greatly missed by nephews Brad (Brittney), Ryan, Taylor, Nicholas, Michael, Jason, Little Joe, Gord, Gary, Rick and his nieces Melissa (Mitch) and Jennifer.
Paul was pre-deceased by his mother Patricia (née Petch) (1976), father Gordon Karn (2006), brother Gary (1992), his precious daughter Candace (1992), wife Dawn Gray (2002), sister Sherri Cameron (2015) and his sister Debbie Puleston (2019).
Paul will be fondly remembered by Cary and Catherine Alexander and David and Robbie Lowther and countless friends and co-workers. A special thank you to the First Responders who were on the scene in Bruce County
