Obituary of Paul Joseph Redfern
It is with deep sadness that the family of Paul Redfern announces his sudden and unexpected passing, at the age of 77.
Paul was predeceased by his parents, Ben and Pauline Redfern, and his brother Jim Redfern. Survived by his sisters Laurel Redfern and Lynn Redfern, sister-in-law Shelley Redfern, nephews Eric (Kim) Pinnell, Ian Pinnell and Mark Pinnell, nieces Susan (Torrey) Redfern-Motz and Julia (Mike) Waddy, grandnephews Austin Pinnell, Matthew Pinnell, and Lucas Redfern-Motz.
Paul grew up in Stettler, graduating from high school in 1964. He also completed a BSc in Electrical Engineering at the U of A, followed by a Masters Degree in Physics from UBC. He lived and worked in Vancouver for many years, returning to Stettler in the late 1990s, where he reconnected with old friends and made many new ones. Family and friends who were close to Paul recognized him as a very kind and humble man, with a smile for everyone. He was also a lifelong learner, continually reading and seeking new knowledge in complex areas. His deep concern about global warming began in the 1970s, and he lived his life with as small an ecological footprint as possible.
A celebration of Paul’s life will be held at the Stettler Funeral Home, Stettler, Alberta on Saturday, August, 19, 2023 at 2:00 P.M.
