Paul Pender Nickerson, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on June 17, 2023, at the age of 79. He was known for his humour, kindness, and a deep passion for sports. Paul's memory will forever be cherished by his wife, Karen, and his loving sons, Craig (Cindy) and Adam (Alexis). Born in Halifax in 1943 (son of the late Frank Russell Nickerson and Marie Margaret Nickerson), Paul's dedication and devotion to his loved ones were unwavering. He leaves behind a family who will forever be grateful for the impact he had on their lives. Paul found great joy and fulfillment in being a grandfather. He adored his grandchildren, Taishi, Kenji, Thomas, Ryan, Harry, and Elise, and took immense pride in their accomplishments and growth. His love for them knew no bounds, and he leaves behind cherished memories that will live on in their hearts. Sports played a significant role in Paul's life.

He relished the challenge and camaraderie these sports offered and created lasting friendships through his shared passion. Paul was a member of the Cathedral Church of All Saints since his childhood.
