Paul Dossey

Obituary of Paul Dossey

Paul peacefully passed away with family at his side at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket on (Superbowl) Sunday, February 12, 2023 at 66 years of age.


Beloved husband of Jeanne. Loving dad of Melissa and Geoff (Kristen). Extremely proud grandpa of Landon, Claire and Wes. Dear brother of Margaret June (Peter), Victor (late Barb) and John (Lori). Also survived by his mother-in-law Cathy and dear brother-in-law Tom (Dawn). Paul will also be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and cousins. 


Paul was a passionate sports fan, with a special place in his heart for the Leafs, the Yankees, and the Rams. He loved nothing more than cheering on his teams and giving those who didn't a hard time about it. 


While his love for sports was deep, it paled in comparison to his love for his family. Paul loved to brag about his kids and grandkids. He was always beaming with pride whenever he spoke about them, and his love for them was evident in every word he spoke.


He was a beloved and respected member of the Bradford community and a passionate advocate for the sport of hockey. Paul devoted countless hours to promoting and growing the game at the youth level, and his impact on the lives of young hockey players in Bradford will be felt for many years to come.  


He was a true leader and a dedicated volunteer, who always put the needs of the players and the organization first. He was a mentor to many, and his guidance and support helped countless players reach their full potential on and off the ice.


A celebration of Paul's life will be held on Saturday, April 1st, 2023 from 1-4 p.m. at the Bradford Community Centre, 125 Simcoe Rd, Bradford, Ontario.


In Paul's memory, donations may be made to Diabetes Canada or The Kidney Foundation.
