A private family service will be
held on September 19, 2020.

Paul Andrew Metcalfe passed away on September 1, 2020 at the age of 60 years.  Paul was born in Kingston on April 30, 1960 but has called Blenheim his home for many years.  He is survived by his sisters Carol Howard (Bob) of Kingston, Eileen Metcalfe and Mary Jane Metcalfe (Larry) of Blenheim and by his brothers Ronald (Cheryl) of Tennessee, William (Shelley).  Predeceased by his brother Michael (survived by Deborah) of Kingston.  He is also survived by nieces, nephews and cousins.  He was predeceased by his parents Ronald Metcalfe and Mary & George Custance.

Paul, also known as “The Mad Hatter” was the gentleman who painted Christmas windows for the downtown Blenheim merchants during the holiday season.  He loved going to yard sales in search of antiques and he was always the first in line to help someone less fortunate.  Following an accident in 2013 he wasn’t able to enjoy many of the things he had been able previously but he did his best.

Paul’s family will remember him at a private graveside service on September 19, 2020.  Friends wishing to remember him with a memorial donation are asked to consider the New Beginnings ABI and Stroke Recovery Association in Chatham.

Sending Condolences to All the Metcalfe Families, Keeping you in my Thouhts & Prayers. Jack Custance. Sandee Chandler.

We are very sorry to hear about Paul's passing! He was a hard working man and we had the pleasure of enjoying some of his art work, both at our business and at home. Paul and his family are in our thoughts and prayers! May you Rest In Peace dear friend!!!

I consider myself very fortunate to have met Paul in his last year of life. Things were not always easy, and Paul was not always cheerful but no matter what came Paul's way he woke up with hopes of a better day ahead. I volunteered with the Hope Haven. I will always remember the way Paul would walk by a photo of Jesus and say "Whos that guy? Put me beside him. Doesnt he look like me?" Then he would roar a laugh and tell me to laugh a little "sweetheart"...and always thank me for helping him. May you rest in peace until we meet again my friend.

I knew Paul for 30+ years and always had great conversations with him. We met at the 8-Ball Billiards hall in Chatham coincidentally while he was doing some Christmas decorations on the windows of the building. He always had a smile on his face when I saw him and always took time out to talk to his friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. R.I.P. Paul...until we meet again.

Condolences to you Mary Jane and family..

Paul was a friendly, non violent, enthusiastic, and highly imaginative and creative soul. It is too bad he will not be around to show his simple jokes and ideas to make things better and improved. I remember being entertained by him at the old watering hole, the Caddy. He has no replacement, he was the only one.. Goodbye Paul....

so sorry for the loss of Paul , gone to soon

My sincere condolences. Over the past few months, I had the privilege of knowing Paul. We connected first as he has the same first name as my little brother. I was able to see his sense of humor and he told me some pretty funny stories including a restaurant owner naming a hamburger after him. He was so proud of that. My wish is that you can remember him as he was growing up - he was a good guy.
