Paul Raymond Massey

June 25, 1949 - September 14, 2022

In Love & Remembrance
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Paul Raymond Massey on September 14th, 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Beloved Husband to Linda. Beloved Father to Chris (Marney) and Tricia. Stepfather to Brian and Kris. Loving Grandfather to Paddy, Meghan, Austin, Ethan and Logan. Dear Brother to David and Sister Nonie (Steve). “Grandpa” to furbabies, Gracie and Murphy. He will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Paul was born and raised in Cobourg, Ontario. The eldest Son of Lloyd and Bernice Massey, Paul learned to love sports at an early age and was fast on his feet, whether it was at the rink or the ball field. He shared his love of sport with his children and grandchildren, traveling near and far for games and tournaments. He was a member of the first Cobourg Cougars hockey team and was honored in 2016 for being part of this organization. Paul enjoyed watching his beloved Leafs and Blue Jays.

Family and friends will miss his gift for storytelling and how he was always ready for a laugh and a joke.

In honour of his love for bees and beekeeping, a commemorative educational program for local schools is being created. This fund will help students learn about the importance of honey bees to nature and the world. Contact Chris at for more information, and to donate to this worthy cause. In the subject line, please type "Bees for Dad" in the subject line.

A Celebration of Life for Paul will occur on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King Street East, Cobourg from 1-3pm.

Paul was a good friend while we grew up in the west end of Cobourg. I remember him giving me a puppy from his dog's litter who became the centre of my family's life for many years. Met him by chance a few years ago but sadly didn't stop long enough to reminisce as we were going in opposite directions. Please accept my sincere condolences.
