He was trained for infantry, but was moved to themotor pool. Where he was severely injured. He was sent home with the prognosis that he would never walk again. But you couldn’t stop Paul. After his recovery Paul moved to Belfuce SD where came into contact with Jehovah’s Witnesses and dedicated his life to Jehovah. While attending meetings at the local Kingdom Hall he met a young sister with 2 girls. They fell in love and were married Paul later adopted the girls as his own. Still Later they had 3 more children. Paul was very much loved, not just by his family, he was also a loved and respected member of the community, and of the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in which he served his spiritual brothers and sisters as a Servant and Elder. For decades while supporting his family he took the lead in spending his precious time to share his love of God’s word with his neighbors. Even into his 90s he took advantage of opportunities to teach those who wanted to learn. Paul’s final thoughts were about his family and how they would be cared for. This included his concern for his spiritual family that are facing injustice because of their love for God. Those who knew him will sorely miss his smile his encouragement and his wit. When you ask those who knew him how they are feeling they will probably say “ with my fingers”, because their hearts are broken today. But Paul had strong faith in the resurrection, so he would tell all of us, “See you soon, when I wake up”.
