O'Flaherty, Paul Edward Cyril peacefully in his 62nd year at Eatonville Care Centre on October 28th 2020. Number nine was born in 1959 to John "Peanuts" O'Flaherty and Catherine DeLory. Paul-Eddie, their special son kept his parents young, humble and strong. Bubba/Bubs was a happy, content child and man who could light up a room with his joyous smile. He was a great music lover who enjoyed rockin' to Elvis, Del Shannon and Sha Na Na. He was also partial to a good ‘ol country tune! Long-time worker at ETS Etobicoke, Special Olympian (floor hockey, softball), bowler and notorious eater who enjoyed a Big Mac and fries like no other. He was cherished by his siblings, Pat and Ian, Sharon, John and Sheila, Bill and Patti, Gerry and Mary, Michael and Diana, Terence, Maryanne and Todd. He will be deeply and sorrowfully missed by his many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, his uncle Val DeLory and numerous cousins. He is now enjoying tea and toast (with loads of jam) with Kay and John. He's happy. He's very happy!
The O’Flaherty clan is eternally grateful to the wonderful caring staff and volunteers of the 5th floor at ECC especially Rechelle, Anna, and Branka. Many thanks to the dedicated staff at ETS who provided Paul a home away from home for so many years.
