ROUSSY, Paul Roger


With heavy hearts we mourn the passing of Paul Roger Roussy (November 1954 – February
2024), who passed peacefully surrounded by family after a defiant fight with pancreatic cancer.
Son of the late Aline and Edward Roussy, Paul is warmly remembered by his life partner Cheryl
Caradonna, son Robert and partner Ashley, daughter Stephanie and partner Tanio, son Mitchell
and partner Halima, son Daniel and partner Brie, and daughter Megan and partner Spencer.
Paul is also remembered by his two grandchildren Remington and Henry, brother Denis and
partner Pauline, and sister Doris and partner Ron.
Our family would like to thank the doctors and nurses who gave us more time with Paul and
made his last years comfortable. We would especially like to thank the staff at the Brant
Community Cancer Clinic who somehow made him love going to chemo. Paul will be
remembered by his unwavering and infectious positivity during cancer treatment that uplifted
everyone at the clinic.
Paul will always be remembered by his friends and family as an avid indoor and outdoor
gardener whose raspberries grew over five feet tall; the baker whose butter tarts would win any
competition; a talented carpenter and generous handyman, and an expert fisherman whose
innovative chum box was something to brag about. Unapologetically himself, Paul was loud and
his laughter filled rooms. He could talk to anyone and made a lasting impression on those lucky
enough to know him.
In lieu of flowers or other gifts, our family kindly ask for donations to be made in remembrance
of Paul to Pancreatic Cancer Canada or Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.

    Lovely tribute. He will be greatly missed.
    I remember the first time, Robbie took me to meet Paul, I couldn’t get a word in at lunch but was entertained nonetheless, my first thought was ‘oh dear god there are two of them’. I am fortunate to have pieces of Paul around me, from a beautifully crafted coffee table to his first-born son and two grandsons. Paul’s ‘big breakfast’ mornings, confident hand talking, love of gardening, sweets, and sweatpants will forever be a part of our household.
    He is forever in our hearts.
