He was married to Jeanette for over 49 years and had already begun planning a special anniversary. Paul was a loving father to Noll and his wife Shaderra, Jordan and her husband Russell. He had been blessed with six very special grandchildren: Brynlee, Xethyn, Mayvin, Weston, Paul and Simon. Paul was one of nine children; he is survived by six brothers and sisters as well as an abundance of nieces and nephews and preceded in death by two siblings.

Paul had retired as District Manager from Park Davis Pharmaceuticals after almost four decades of dedicated service. While with the company, Paul won a great number of awards in his distinguished career. He and Jeanette were also able to travel to several different places in the world, giving them both many wonderful memories.

After retiring, Paul went back to his country roots where he managed their ranch in Christine. While at the ranch, he excelled with his gift of hospitality to others through hunting and cooking. He was a man of many talents, one of which was dancing with his beloved wife.

Paul's funeral was held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at Hurley Funeral Home in Pleasanton. The family requests memorial gifts be given to a memorial scholarship fund for rural children to have the opportunities Paul did to be educated and succeed.
