Paul Eisenhut

November 2, 1930 - December 12, 2013


On December 12, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer, Paul Arnold Eisenhut passed away with his family at his side.  He will be missed by his loving wife, Anne; three sons Gary (Meryle), Doug and Neil (Constanze); grandchildren Kyle (Sabrina), Jena, Ryan, Kristi (Grant) Fortuin, Craig, and Noah; and great grandson Lucas.

Born in 1930 in Mannville, Alberta, Paul’s family settled a few years later in Oliver, where his father established an insurance business.  Paul grew into an accomplished athlete, winning a baseball scholarship to Seattle, where he met his wife-to-be, Anne.  Upon marrying in 1955, Paul and Anne returned to Oliver to work in the Eisenhut family business.  Paul also lived and worked in the family orchard business. Paul eventually got involved in designing and building the Cherry Grove golf course in 1961. Once involved in the golf business he successful obtained his Golf Professional designation.  Playing and teaching golf became his lifelong hobby. 

In 1964 Paul moved to Osoyoos and established Eisenhut Insurance, which still remains in the family to his day.  During the seventies and eighties, Paul was charter member in establishing the Osoyoos Golf and Country Club and was also a huge supporter in establishing the Osoyoos hockey arena.  Paul was passionate about getting involved with his 3 boys.  He coached them in baseball, fastball and hockey.

If he was not coaching he was always in attendance

 In later years he could always be found around the hockey rink or ballpark and would travel to support his sons and grandchildren in their many sporting endeavors. 

In retirement, Paul and Anne travelled to many places, finally settling in Yuma during the winter season.  Their time was spent golfing in summers and spending time in winter with family, which usually involved hockey.   Friends and family will remember Paul for his tireless energy and his sense of humor.  Even during his final battle with cancer, he was persistent in his fight and giving “thumbs up” to the end.  He is dearly loved and will be cherished in our hearts.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 21 at 11:00 am at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Osoyoos.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the BC Cancer Foundation, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 5L3.

Arrangements are entrusted to Nunes-Pottunger Funeral Service & Crematorium, Oliver & Osoyoos.
