Obituary

PAUL NICHOLAS REIMER
Dec 18, 1942 - Oct 15, 2019
It is with deep sadness that we announced the sudden passing of Paul on October 15, at his home in Stonewall, MB at the age of 76
Paul was predeceased by his mother Helen Reimer, father Nikolas Reimer and step sister Elvira Jenzen. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 50 years Donna, daughter Jennifer (Andrew) and son Geoffrey (Jolene) as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was the proud grandfather of Austin (Lewis) and Evan and Charli (Reimer).
Paul and family escaped war torn Europe in the midst of World War 2 after their village in Russia was destroyed in a Allied bombing run. Helen, Paul and Elvira walked over 3000 kms through 3 different countries to make their way to a friendly port where they boarded a boat destined for Canada. When they landed in Canada they made their way to Manitoba and stayed with cousins in Elm Creek. They eventually moved to Winnipeg in the Elmwood area, where Paul spent his childhood and high school years.
Shortly out of high school Paul took a job with the Hudson Bay Company in Thompson. When he came back to Winnipeg he began working at McMahon’s for 23 years before taking different jobs in the trucking industry. Paul really enjoyed his time at McMahon’s where he created friendships that lasted his throughout his life
Horses were always part of Paul’s life. He met the love of his life Donna in 1966 while selling her a horse. They Married in 1968 and began their life together. Paul had a wide variety of interests, he was an avid reader, fan of Monty Python, enjoyed all kinds of sports including hockey, NFL, the CFL and the NBA however his passion was Rodeo. It was through the rodeo where Paul met many of his lifelong friends, where his kindness, patience and sense of humour made him a favourite of both the young and old cowboys working their way through the rodeo circuit. Paul exceled at both calf roping and team roping, was a sought after team roping partner. He won several awards throughout the years and was entered into the Heartland Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2017. Paul was still riding at 75, and his love for horses and rodeo continued until the day he died. Paul will be dearly missed by friends and family spread around the country as his kind and gentle nature garnered genuine respect throughout all aspects of his life.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Paul at the Stonewall Quarry Park Heritage Arts Center, Wednesday October 23, 2019 at 1:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.

Donna and family. We were so sorry to read of Paul's passing. It's hard to believe that so many years have gone by since our days at UGG. And Paul sold a lot of carpet to our family and friends many years ago! We remember some good times and stories about his great sense of humour that you would relate to us. We were going through our old slides at the lake a couple of weeks ago and there was your wedding picture! We still didn't realize at the time how far back that went - over 50 years already! Hard to believe! Although we are a voice from the past, we wanted to send our condolences to you and hope it helps to know that people still care after such a long time because you are special people and special in our memories. Thinking of you - Yvonne Miller (Godfrey) and Bev Venn (Zimmerman).
