Allyn Clarke, Halifax I just read Paul's obituary in the CNC SCOR and my mind was full of memories playing soccer on summer afternoons. I was Paul's first PhD student and he was probably the only member of my committee who actually read through the comlex mathematics of my thesis. I remember Paul and I creating the draft plan of the Canadian WOCE in a restaurant in Victoria's China town with the sweat from our brows dappling the manuscript. He was a great advisor and a great colleague and he demonstrated how you have to descend the ivory tower and apply your knowledge and skills to real problems. My condolences on your loss.

I had the pleasure of taking a course from Paul in Oceanography, Waves and Tides, I think. He was a wonderful teacher, bringing ocean modelling mathematics down to a level at which I could understand. Paul was a friend and very supportive of IOUBC students, I remember crashing on his and Josee's sofa when I had to make return visits to UBC computer centre to complete my thesis efforts.

I was saddened to see Paul's obituary in the Globe and Mail this weekend. I took classes from Paul while I was working on my PhD as a mature student at UBC in the 1980s. We worked on the Science for Peace (S4P) committee together and made a closer connection through that work. I always enjoyed getting together with Paul and our mutual friend Ron Ninnis for beer and interesting discussions of science and world affairs. The world will be a less interesting place without Paul in it. My condolences to the family, particularly the grandchildren. As a grandfather myself, I can imagine that they will miss him a lot.

Dear Annette and Family, Sincere condolances on your loss of Paul. Paul and I were very close friends early in our training. We were roomates for two summers in the RCAF (56-58?)in St Jean Military College in Quebec and in RCAF Clinton for two summers while taling telecommunications. We had many adventures mainly because Paul could afford to buy a car! One I will tell you about was a weekend we decided to spend in Detroit Michigan...except we did not want to pay for a hotel room so we slept in the car parked behind a school. All went well the first night so we went back there for the second night. About 3am in the morning we were awakaned by two burly black policemen who said to us, "We checked you out last night but when you were in exzctly the same place the next night in exactly the same sleeping positions we had to wake you up to see if you were still alive!! Paul was a wonderful roomate and a suberb individual. He bought one of my books a couple of years ago. We have a place in Ladysmith Vancouver Island and we had hoped to get down to see you folks sometime! We live in Ottawa but have friends on Vancouver Island. Per Ardua ad Astra Paul Merv Letts

Paul was the best Stepdad- supportive, good natured, funny and best of all: loved my mom with all his heart. Thank you for everything you did for us. We will miss you forever. ❤️
