Wabano Remembers Paul Skanks
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Elder Paul Skanks. From 2010 to 2021, Paul volunteered his time on the Wabano Board of Directors, where his wisdom and thoughtful contributions left an indelible mark. His dedication was evident in the welcoming ceremonies he led, guiding staff with his teachings. Paul’s warm smile and infectious laughter were constants at our special events and gatherings, leaving cherished memories for all who knew him.
Paul was a tireless presence in Ottawa, generously sharing his knowledge in his humble and kind manner. His impact on our community was immeasurable, and his legacy will continue to inspire us.
On behalf of the Wabano Board, Staff, and community members, we extend our deepest condolences his children, his extended family as well as his community in Kahnawake. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time. Paul’s spirit will forever live on in our hearts and in the cherished memories we shared with him.
