paul-serviceWe are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague Paul Thomas.

Words cannot describe the shock we are all experiencing as a community. Paul was a cornerstone of Ray-Cam Co-operative Centre for the last 20 years. From his work in the Ray-Cam Immigrant Buddy Program many years ago to his key role as Youth Programmer at Ray-Cam Paul was a role model, mentor and a consummate caregiver for youth, families and his colleagues in the Downtown Eastside. He was always available, always put the needs of the community first and did whatever needed to be done no matter how big or how small. His loss is truly devastating.

A memorial service for Paul  will be held Saturday January 7th. Paul’s family has invited all who were touched by his spirit of kindness and community to attend.
