Stephen Orland Pauley
It is with great sadness that the family of Stephen Orland Pauley, of Westcock, NB, announce his passing at his home on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. Born in Sackville, NB, on October 9, 1958, he was a son of the late Orland Pauley and Evelyn (Beck) Pauley.
Stephen graduated from NBCC to become a welder/fitter/journeyman, going on to receive his Red Seal designation. He worked at The Canadian National Railway, ROR, and for Corrections Canada as a welding instructor. Stephen and Charlene enjoyed spending their summers at the cottage with family and friends. He loved the woods and hunting in the fall, especially with his son. Winters were spent snowmobiling, traveling, playing cards, and of course music.
Stephen had a love of music and many genres. He always knew the perfect song for every occasion and moment. Stephen and Charlene greatly enjoyed dancing together which is something they have dearly missed since the onset of his illness.
He was an avid supporter of the Sackville Snow Drifters for 25 years. He was acting president for seven years. He especially loved spending time in his garage.
Stephen lived courageously with Parkinson's Plus seven years. He and his family have been so grateful for all those who have walked this journey with him. Professionals, family, dear friends and community members. Each one has been blessing.
He leaves behind his wife and best friend of 45 years, Charlene (Beale) Pauley, Westcock, NB; his mother, Evelyn Pauley, Sackville; his daughter, Lacey (Jacob) Pauley Fisher, Shinimicas, NS; his son Jason (Natalie) Pauley, Sackville; cherished grandchildren, Adelynn and Grace Fisher, and Marshall and Russell Pauley; his brother Duane (Susan) Pauley, Westcock; his sister, Gealene Pauley Parsons, Westcock; his brother-in-law, Jamie Parsons, Murray Corner, NB. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Frances Beale and stepfather-in-law, Leo Poirier, Sackville; his brothers-in-law, Richard (Sandra) Beale, Sackville, and Brett (Andrea) Beale, Sackville, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and close family and friends.
Besides his father, Orland, he was predeceased by his father-in-law, Alexander (Sandy) Beale.
Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB, (506-364-1300). Honouring provincial guidelines, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
