PAUL (CHESTER) BARISENKOFF

Born October 14, 1935 to Maria and William Barisenkoff in Grand Forks, B.C. Paul was the youngest of four children, Helan (Bernice) Lapshinoff, Anastasia (Jenny) Hagel, and Peter (Don) Barisenkoff. In 1959, Paul married his beloved wife Olga Rezansoff and she had their first and only child, Cindy. She was the light of his life. Cindy traveled to Russia in her adult years to study at Moscow State University and married her husband Alec Musaev and they had three wonderful children, Benson, Pall, and Biatta. Paul adored his grandchildren and spent his entire life teaching them the fine skills of carpentry, how to swing a golf club, and to sing all his favorite Hank Williams songs in perfect harmony; all the things he was great at. Paul was part of the community choir for many of his young years and enjoyed being part of the USCC. After the tragic passing of his daughter Cindy, Paul and Olga assumed responsibility of their three grandchildren and raised them for the remainder of their lives. He was an amazing provider and gave his grandchildren a lot of great memories. On Sunday, August 3, 2014, Paul left us to start his journey to be with many loved ones, namely his wife Olga, his daughter Cindy, his mother and father Mary and Bill, his siblings Bernice, Jenny and Don, and many of his close friends and other relatives. He is probably playing a few rounds of golf with them already! He is survived by his grandchildren, Benson, Pall, Biatta, and many nieces and nephews; all whom loved him deeply. We will miss our Deda, our uncle, our friend.
