Obituary of Paul Todd Marler
Paul Todd Marler, 68, of Fort McMurray, Alberta, passed away on January 1, 2023, at the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre after a courageous battle with cancer.
He was predeceased by his parents George and Doreen Marler, as well as his brothers Bruce and Brent Marler.
Paul is survived by his wife Pat Hayes, daughter Jenn (Brody) Henderson, grandsons Aiden, Owen and Joseph of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Sisters; Gail Lacaille and Shawna Parsley of Ashmont, Alberta, and many nieces and nephews in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and the Wilson clan of North Tay, New Brunswick.
Born in South Burnaby, British Columbia, Paul was a resident of Fort McMurray from the age of twelve. He was employed most of his adult life at Suncor but believed the most important role was with his family. Retired at fifty-two, he enjoyed travelling and especially loved spending time at his acreage and garage loft in Limekiln, New Brunswick.
