In Celebration of Paul Wroe

It is with sadness that SPA announces the passing of Paul Wroe.

December 17, 1942 –  July 19, 2019

Peacefully, with his family by his side, on Friday, July 19, 2019, at Credit Valley Hospital, at the age of 76. Beloved husband of Mary Lynn for almost 52 years. Loving father of Stephen (Darlene) and Marianne Theo (Karl). Devoted grandfather of Stephanie, Melissa, Abby, Owen, Karli, Sailor, Poppy and Jack. Paul was the dear brother-in-law of Hugh, Anne, Paul, Esther, Ellen, Ian, Martha and their families. Hard working and multi-talented, Paul was a Chartered Accountant and had a proud history of working within Toronto’s film industry. He had a philanthropic nature and was a dedicated executive of the Variety Club charity and the Canadian Motion Picture Pioneers. Paul’s passions were his family, his bountiful garden, hunting, fishing, and cottage life. He participated in and enjoyed a wide variety of sports throughout his life. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane Subway, on Wednesday from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. A Celebration of Life Service will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 11 a.m. For those who wish to donate, donations may be made to Trillium Health Partners – The Carlo Fidani Regional Cancer Centre.

  1. We are very sorry to read this sad news. Paul was so kind and generous always thinking of others. Making sure the bike path was trimmed and safe for the kids. Growing and donating so many pumpkins over the years to the SPA Halloween Party. Paul always has time to chit chat and share stories with me and show off his bountiful garden. My heartfelt condolences to the family at this sad sad time. May you hold so many great memories close to help ease the pain.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this sad news. My condolences to the family. My last meeting with Paul was a happy occasion in Mt. Tremblant. Laughing and discussing the day’s events with friends.
