It is with great sadness that we report that Paul Smith has lost his valiant fight against cancer.
Paul has been a Harbourguides Crew member for the last ten years and will be missed greatly.
For those who knew him, we don’t need to tell you what a great guy he was, but for those who didn’t we would like to explain a little bit about his character.
Firstly, and most importantly he was a true gentleman that often-put others before himself. He loved giving people gifts, often contra deals,he rarely complained or moaned about life and took any knocks square on the chin, dusted himself down and carried on regardless. Always looking on the bright side, Paul’s glass was always half full, never half empty.
Career wise in our opinion Paul was one of the best salesman on the planet and responsible for the growth of Harbourguides. He would work anywhere for us, always optimistic that it would be a success and it invariably was.
The last year or so Paul’s health deteriorated and was diagnosed with throat cancer. It was at an advanced stage and required major life changing surgery. Once again Paul didn’t complain or feel sorry for himself, he just took the attitude of I can beat this.
The operation sadly was not a success, but once again, very few complaints from him. He fought his illness full on, still smiling and being as positive as anyone could be in his position.
Nobody could recover from his illness, not even Paul and sadly in the early hours of Saturday the 27th May 2017 Paul died in a hospice with his family at his side.
So here’s to our Mr Smith, you were unique, quirky, kind and a loyal friend. Your glass was truly always half full and we are going to miss you x
