Suddenly, on April 17, 2019 due to an aneurysm.

Paul will be sadly missed by his loving wife Diane Rennie. Loving son of Hugh O'Connor and the late Marion O'Connor. Brother to Sharon, Jeffrey and the late Colleen and Mark O'Connor. Uncle to Erin, Grace, Alex, Sara and Ben. Great uncle to Eliza and Josie. Step-Father to Holden and Alistair Rennie.

Paul had a very rewarding career of over 35 years with the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and will be deeply missed by his union Brothers and Sisters with IATSE local 471. His passion for golf, led he and Diane on many trips to Cuba, one of which they have just returned from.

A Celebration of Paul’s Life will be held at Beechwood, Funeral, Cemetery & Cremation Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue, on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 1:00PM.

Paul’s family would like to encourage those who can, to donate blood, to help save lives.

I know that things suddenly, out of the blue. I suffered a series of strokes, it's really hard to Come back! . Paul suffered an anuism, it was too great. Condolences to the family and friends. Just look at that smile. Paul was ready to help at any time. He was a good man. I'm sorry for the tragic loss!

I've worked with, golfed with, traveled with and shared laughs, hugs, and tears with Paul for over 30 years. Hard to process he is no longer here to share more wonderful moments with. His warm smile and gentle disposition will be sorely missed. Love, thoughts, and prayers to Pauls family.
