Friday, June 2, 2017My sincere condolences to all the family. Paul was the oldest cousin in the "Ryckman" family and while we didn't get together very often over the years, we always had a connection. Rest in peace, dear cousin.

Friday, June 2, 2017Our deepest condolences on the loss of a great friend and neighbour. To Shari, Meghan, Michael and Scott, please know that you are in our thoughts We have known Paul for years. In the beginning when he was at Kingston's Cove, he did all the service on our cars. He was a great mechanic, and a great friend. When he was a councillor, we knew if we had any concerns, Paul would be our voice at the Plympton council meetings. He has left quite a legacy - but he is in a better place now.

Friday, June 2, 2017My Dad Although the funeral home did a decent job capturing our dad, they did not catch all he was. It would be a book. And yes, maybe someday we'll write it. Dad was married twice. He raised 6 children. Attended 3 of their weddings. Held all 7 grandchildren and his one great granddaughter in his arms as often as he could. Most of all he taught his children everything he could. If he was laying a cinderblock foundation, we were learning. Shingling a roof, we were nailing. He BUILT a low profile beautiful speed boat, no kit, no prefab. His ability to learn and master skills never stopped. This attribute is evident in his eldest son, Paul Kingston, my son, Patrick Ryan, and it's looking like his great granddaughter, Serenity. It's likely Scott Kingston and Michael Kingston also share this. It's a shame we don't know each other better. It's what Dad wanted. His legacy is one of passing on his knowledge and his brand of fierce love to his children. Paul Kingston prepared his children to face life successfully. We are a cocky bunch because Dad loved us so unconditionally, showed us we could do anything we set our sights on. Right? Meghan Kingston I have passed this legacy of sharing knowledge and love unto my children and grandchildren. Here is where we pick up the torch and continue the good parts. Thank you Dad, big man, big void. Kerry ( K2)

Thursday, June 1, 2017My sincerest condolences Meghan. Your dad was one awesome guy! I remember him at your games, supporting the team, the help he gave to our annual auction and especially the excitement you had every year before you left, and when you came back, from what must have been some amazing family trips to the sunny south. My thoughts are with you, your mom and your brothers during this tough time.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017I am so sad to hear this news of uncle Paul's passing. He was such a dear member of the family and the true patriarch of this big Kingston clan. I have so many fond memories of times in his home, always filled with people, eating delicious food, with many laughs and lots of fun. It is tough to be so far away at times like this, and everyone, especially all of his children, are in my prayers and thoughts. Sending so much love. xoxo Caroline
