Paul worked for General Motors as a die setter, retiring after 36 ½ years.
He lived to fish, spending much of his time at the Delaware Dam, fishing for croppy and bass with his good friend Carl Blankenship. Paul also had a keen eye for antiques. Attending local auctions he would buy, sell, and refinish antiques.
Well loved by church family, he was a member at Cornerstone Grace Brethren Church. Paul served as greeter and volunteered many hours assisting with building maintenance.

Vernon, Helen Caldwell of Mt. Vernon, Sandra McBride of Mansfield, and Dorothy (Leonard) McBride of Mansfield; best friends Carl Blankenship and family and “son” Rick Sanchez.
