(My last post in memory of Paul may have got cut off. Not sure if it got posted or not. )
Paul and I share the same last name although not related. Out of the blue Paul approached me about 8 years ago and suggested lunch. I was not sure what was on his mind but I realized quickly I could not lose. I think Paul wanted to teach me about the fire & sprinkler industry and that he did. I was struggling to get my small M & A advisory practice focused on the fire and security off the ground. Over the next year we met for lunch 3 times. You could not meet a nicer guy and boy was he dedicated to the fire and sprinkler industry. I was lucky to have met Paul Harding
Deepest condolences from my family to yours. Paul Harding has left a legacy and I am saddened that I never had a chance to meet him. Joining the Harding Fire team very recently, I can see the great values he brought to the industry. Working for Jennifer has been amazing, and I can now only imagine what joy it would have been to have met the Founder of Harding Fire. Keeping him close in my thoughts & prayers.
Cheryl, Jennifer, Laura and Family:
I am so sorry for your loss. Paul was a wonderful, kind and warm hearted man with a terrific sense of humour. We are all so blessed to have known Paul for so many years. His bright light will shine on through you Cheryl and your great family that he loved so deeply.
Paul thank you for just being you, may you rest in peace.
Sending our thoughts and hugs to Cheryl Jennifer and Laura. I lived beside the Harding’s in the late 70’s and Still remember happy times in the station wagon going out for many dinners! Wonderful memories of a great family.

Sincerest condolences to Cheryl and the entire Harding family. The values that Paul shared with me regarding family and business, are ones that I continue to cherish and carry with me in every day life so thank you Paul. He will be missed by many.
Our deepest condolences to Cheryl, Jennifer, Laura and family.
Paul was larger than life and family was always so important to him which was very clear whenever we spoke to him.
He will be missed.
Ken & Kathy and family
Paul was a true professional, and a highly knowledgeable individual in the life safety industry. He was well liked and respected by his peers. Paul used to make me smile when he called me Rocco which is a combination of my first and last name. I will miss hearing that. I extend my deepest condolences and best wishes to the family.
On behalf of all of us at National Fire Equipment Ltd., we extend our heartfelt condolences to the Harding family. Many of us here at National Fire, worked with Paul over his many years in the fire protection industry. Even as far back to the old the Grinnell days. We knew him to be a driven and always a consummate professional. He will be missed.
