Paul Lyndon Clover

July 3, 1961 - October 5, 2018


My amazing husband passed on Oct. 5, 2018. Cancer took Paul away from us.

Paul was born in London, England and moved at the age of 7 years old to Canada. He brought with him the British sense of humour like no other.  Paul was hilariously funny, kind, thoughtful, generous, sharp, extremely curious about everything and was committed to his work.

Paul started his young life in Lynn Valley in North Vancouver, making friends, getting into trouble and all that fun stuff that kids do. The family moved to Langley, where he went to Langley High school and drew many more friends into his circle. Paul started to work at age 14, fueling and washing planes at the Langley airport. He used all the money he made to pay for his flying lessons. After getting his pilot’s licence at Skyways he became a flight instructor for about a year. He got his first job flying as a bush pilot on wheels and skis in Fort Chipewyan, Northern Alberta at Calm Air, and Parsons Airways among others.  Then he got a job at Air BC in 1985 which transitioned later into Air Canada Jazz.

Paul was passionate about anything to do with WW2. He read and amassed history books, watched documentaries, and collected paintings. He enjoyed aerobatics on his Stephens Akro for about 5 years.

The amazing thing was that he could recall and retell so many details about everything he learned.

Paul was eclectic in his many interests. His creative “genius” was exhibited in his many design ideas, and his perfectionist woodworking skills.  He was a consultant in the movie industry when airplanes were involved.  And, let’s not forget about soccer – he played until he could no longer. He treasured his soccer cleats; his jersey’s for many teams; and had season tickets to the White Caps.

Paul was extremely passionate and generous, donating to many causes through the course of his life.

Paul leaves behind his wife Lyse, parents Pat and Terry Clover, sister Shelley and her husband Bill, nephew Kelly and his wife Amanda and baby Hannah. And, let’s not forget all of his friends that he made along the way.

At Paul’s request, in lieu of flowers, please donate to “Doctors Without Borders”.

I send my heartfelt condolences to Lyse and all of Paul’s family. He was a very kind and funny man taken far too soon. We will miss him.

From: Nancy Rondeau

Hello Lyse,
We are extremely saddened to learn of Paul’s passing. The three of us have fond memories of meeting you both when you offered your condo on West 8th for rent. We were all so pleased that you selected Stephanie over other applicants to live in the unit. It was just right for her at that time, she enjoyed living there. We were fortunate to meet and get to know a little of you and Paul in the process. We join together in expressing our heartfelt and sincere sympathies for your loss.
Peace, love and light be with you,
Nancy, Bruce and Stephanie

Your pain and suffering are over now, may you rest in peace. Know that you are well loved by those left behind. It’s not how long a man lives, but how deeply he is loved. Like a true soldier, you fought your battle with courage and determination.
We will miss your keen sense of humor and your fearless zest for life.
You will never be forgotten, but always loved, you are the son of our hearts.

Très chère Lili,
Il n’y a pas de mots pour exprimer combien nous sommes peinés par le décès de ton cher Paul et de tout ce que tu vas avoir à traverser par l’absence de cet homme qui était si généreux, attentionné et charmant.

Bon courage et on sera toujours là pour toi!
