We like to express our deepest condolences to everyone on the demise of our brother, Paul Joseph Herve Melanson, who resided in Amherst, Nova Scotia, and was 72 years old. Paul passed away in the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on the morning of Sunday, July 9, 2023.
He was the son of Alfred Melanson, who passed away, and Catherine Melanson (née Gallant), who also passed away. He was born in Shediac, New Brunswick.
Paul spent his childhood going fishing, playing his guitar—especially Elvis Presley songs—and riding his motorcycle. He also enjoyed playing the guitar. Paul’s formative years were spent in Sackville, where he was employed at Enterprise Foundry during the 1970s. In addition, Paul put in a number of years working and living in Prince Edward Island, where he toiled away in the tobacco and potato fields. Paul was a diligent worker throughout his whole life. He had spent the previous ten years living in Amherst, Nova Scotia, with his older sister.
He had a passion for animals, especially birds, and he enjoyed watching them in their natural environments. Paul appeared to be a gruff guy on the outside, but he had a soft spot in his heart for his cat Luna. Paul’s quick wit and sense of humor, in addition to his one-of-a-kind chuckle, will be remembered fondly. Throughout his life, he encountered a lot of challenges, but notably in the past seven months, when he courageously waged a long and difficult battle against constant health issues right up until the very end.
