Barrington, Robert Paul (July 16, 1945 - March 5, 2019)
Paul passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on Tuesday, March 5th, 2019, at Bluewater Health, Sarnia. He is finally reunited with his beautiful wife Julie, whom he dearly missed after her passing in 2013. He was 73 years old.

Paul was predeceased by his wife of 42 years, Julie; his parents, Jessie and Ike Barrington; step-mother, Mary Barrington; in-laws, Polly and George Orrange; brothersin-law Chuck Orrange and Alan MacDonald; and dear friends, Jack Orrange and Sandra and Max Adlam.

Paul is survived by his children: Robb (Kelly), Erin (Jeff) and Adam, as well as his two favorite’ people, granddaughters, Ella and Maggie, who very happily helped care for him, and always made him smile!

Paul also leaves, with many happy and fond memories, his siblings: Anita (Len McGean),Louise(Robert Clancey), Don (Judy), Pam(Jean-Luc Bry) and Brenda (Doug Lynch); in-laws: Rosemarie (Gerry Laliberté), Michael Orrange (Doreen), George Orrange (Myrna), Linda MacDonald and Cheryl Orrange; very special friends: Stan Meade and Bernie Orrange; as well as numerous friends, nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended family.

Paul was born in St. John’s NL but moved to Ontario shortly after high school. A few years later, he met his wonderful wife Julie and they eventually settled down and raised their family in Sarnia, where Paul enjoyed a career working with Nova Chemicals for 27 years.

After retiring in 2000, Paul and Julie returned to St. John’s often to spend time with and to make memories with family and friends! The family would like to extend a very special thanks to the AMAZING nursing staff on the Complex Continuing Care Unit who treated Paul like family. You helped make these last 4 months so much easier for him and for us. Your kindness will always be remembered!

A wake celebrating Paul’s life will be held upstairs at the Up’s and Down’s, 226 Front St, Sarnia on Saturday April 20th from 1-4pm. There will be no funeral at Paul’s request. Cremation has already taken place. In lieu of flowers, as an expression of sympathy, those who wish may make a donation in Paul’s memory to St Joseph’s Hospice, Sarnia.

The Barrington Family in St. John’s, will be hosting a ‘Celebration of Life’ in Paul’s memory this summer.

Paul will always be remembered fondly for his great sense of humour and for his ability to make us laugh. He will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.

My most sincere condolences goes to everyone with Paul's passing. My favourite memories of Paul was every summer when his family came to Sarnia from Newfoundland to visit us. Colborne Road beach was our place to "play". Another angel called to heaven. You will always be in my heart. Your cousin, Sandi

RIP Paul. You created an indelibly funny memory for me the first time l ever met you in the Pine Room, back in 1971. I shall always remember you and your lovely wife Julie with love and affection.
My heart goes out to Robb, Erin, and Adam at this sad time of farewell to you. My thoughts are with Stan Meade as well because you two were bosom buddies for so many years.
Your old friend Faye Finlayson
