Paul Doran Obituary, Death – Paul tragically lost his life on January 18 near Lennox Head, Australia, while he and his wife were valiantly attempting to save their children from drowning. When the weather suddenly changed, the family was out on the water enjoying the evening when they got into difficulties. The water was relatively shallow. The parents of three children, Paul and Simonne rushed fast to bring their sons Vann and Shay, as well as their daughter Lyra, to a safe place. He is survived by his devoted wife, Simonne, as well as their three children, Vann, Lyra, and Shay. Additionally, he is survived by his parents Pat and Helen, his siblings Aoife, Emma, Gavin, and Sarah, as well as extended families, friends, and acquaintances from all over the world who are devastated by his passing.
Paul had a profound concern for all aspect of his life, but especially for his family. He was a loving father who, like any other parent, wanted the very best for his children and their futures. As a result, the family has just just relocated to Australia in the month of July in order to embark on a brand-new and exciting phase of their lives. When the terrible event took place, they were having a wonderful time in their brand-new home. Please join us in honoring Paul by contributing to a fundraising effort for Simonne and his children, who are going through a very difficult time coping with the tragedy on the other side of the world. People that we’ve just known for a little period of time will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Rest in Peace Paul.
