Obituary
VIEIRA, Paulo Adelino.  With sad hearts, we mourn the passing of our beloved brother Paul.  Born in Ribeira Quente, Azores on October 8, 1965 and immigrated to Canada in 1968.  Paul is survived by his four siblings, Ligia Medeiros (Frank Medeiros), Joe Vieira (Ruthie Vieira), Eduarda Vieira Calado (Jorge Calado), Anna Vieira Hayes (Mark Hayes) and his eight nieces and nephews; Cindy Medeiros, Christine Tawadros, David Medeiros, Melissa Vieira, Adam Vieira (Paul’s Godson), Daniel Calado, Marc Calado, Rylie Hayes and his three great nephews Vincent Tawadros, Matthew Tawadros, and Alessandro Joseph Vieira . He is predeceased by his loving parents Manuel Vieira Jr. and Gilda Vieira.

elevated IwHvP Paul grew up in Parkdale and well known in the neighborhood. Many people would say Paul had a heart of gold and would give anyone the shirt off his back if you needed it.   He had many friends who knew him by Pauly or “Paul the P”.   As a young man, he had it all, the cars, bikes, travel and money.  He was on top of the world.   

elevated IwHvP Unfortunately, Paul had been living with addiction, depression, and struggled with inner demons. He tried rehab, counselling; he just could not overcome it. When COVID hit he went into a deeper depression and often asked why it did not reach him, he really did struggle with the pain of addiction and depression. He helped many people get through some tough times but sadly he could not help himself.  Paul is now at peace and reunited with his favourite person, his mom. 

elevated IwHvP If you wish, in memory of Paul, in lieu of flowers, donations to an addiction centre or mental health centre of your choice is welcome. Viewing and burial to be held with family and close friends.
