Obituary for Paul William Dalrymple

Dalrymple, Paul William, 60, of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Born on April 24th, 1959, in Halifax, he graduated from Prince Andrew High School. He was passionate about his work as a skilled millwright and machinist. A graduate of Dartmouth Regional Vocational School, Paul began his career at Imperial Oil and, after a few stops in between, he was set to reluctantly retire from Maritime Paper Products.

Paul loved to spend time with his daughters and his grand-dog Pepper, and to make his friends and family laugh. He enjoyed model trains, military history, and had a passion for reading, music, and film.

He is survived by his daughters Emily and Kate Dalrymple and their mother Caroline Muise, his mother Christina (Matheson) Dalrymple, brother Robby Dalrymple (Joanne Conrod), lifelong friend Scott Fraser, partner Christina Fuller, multiple cousins, aunts and uncles. He was predeceased by his father William Dalrymple.

The family would like to offer thanks to the staff at Hospice Halifax for their excellent care during Paul’s last weeks. Paul was deeply grateful for his cancer care team, who helped him live well following his diagnosis. He was also very appreciative of the Smith-King family for their support during this difficult time. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations in Paul’s memory may be made to Hospice Halifax (

So sorry to hear of Paul's passing, I just found out about it today or I would have posted this sooner. I spent years car pooling with his Dad to the Refinery and had the pleasure to work in the same Dept as well. Would often run into Paul by the vending machines and he always had an interesting story or something to comment on. My condolences to the family and stay safe during this trying time.

Paul & I worked together @ Sobeys and would go to the clubs after work either in my Beetle or his beloved 68 Camaro I believe. We had some great laughs during those years. So sorry to hear of his passing.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Paul's passing. We knew each other from high school and I bought my first car off Paul. He was a good man. My condolences go out to all his friends and family.
Rodge, I was so very sorry to hear about Paul's passing. Your brother and I used to have some really great discussions about books and movies. It is striking how much he looks like your dad. Gone way too soon. My sincere condolences to you, your mom and all your family.

Condolences to the Dalrymple family. Paul was a great millwright/machinist who would help anyone with a project or problem. Working with Paul was a pleasure, he had an uncanny way of lightning the mood or making us laugh. My favourite was when he would sing copperhead road but change the lyrics to tell stories of coworkers with kindhearted wit.

Sorry for your loss. I worked with Paul in the early '80's at the old Sobeys Penhorn store #400. He must have worked there as he attended trade school, as I did.
