With sadness the family announces the passing of Paul Krauskopf of Springfield Ontario. Paul is survived by his wife Anne (nee Dandeno), his son Daniel, and daughter Leandra (Darko) and grandchildren Natalija and Milos. Paul was a fantastic stepfather for Joseph and Bridget Dandeno (Anne’s children). He is also survived by his brothers Gord (Nina) of Durham-West Grey, and Donald of London Ont. Paul was born in London Ontario to parents Joseph and Rela Irene Krauskopf (nee Carter) (deceased).
Paul was religious in his life and a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 13404 and of the Saint Steven’s Guild. Paul was very generous with his time in helping others. Paul also enjoyed a challenging and rewarding career in the construction industry. During his spare time, Paul enjoyed doing woodworking projects, for family and friends. Paul had a passion for painting landscape sceneries and enjoyed watching Classic movies with his wife Anne. He also developed a fondness for cooking, enjoyed by his family and friends. The birth of his grandchildren Natalija and Milos was the joy of his life.
