He was a man for others whose guiding philosophy was inspired by the French diplomat and dramatist Paul Claudel who wrote: “what value does life have if not to be given”. Paul was a generous heart who changed the lives of many people around the world. A bibliophile, he saw the creative genius in everyone. Born in Melbourne, Australia on May 27th 1941, Paul was a citizen of the world yet always Australian. Predeceased by his parents Lucy Ellen Dole (nee Green) and Herbert John Dole as well as his brother Peter Julian Eymard Dole. He will live on in the hearts of wife Patricia Mary Marsden-Dole and sons Gregory (Eliana) and Thomas (Nicole) and grandchildren Rennie, Marlow and Beatrix. Survived by brother David James (Gabrielle), uncle to Simone, Matthew, Anna and Tim as well as dear sister Hilary Mary Sullivan (Ross), and nieces Catherine and Angela. Survived as well by sister-in-law Vilma Dole and niece Lucy Ellen and brother-in-law Harold Marsden (Kathy) and Bronwen and Gaelen and god-daughter Koby Rogers Hall. We would like to thank Dr. Lisa Aldridge, CCAC staff and services and Father Vincent Pereira for their constant attention and concern for us during this difficult time.
