 He enjoyed working with farm equipment and horses, and collecting miniature farm toys.  He enjoyed his daily visits with the regulars at BBG’s, was very involved with the Friendship Wagon Train for Camp Winnebago and going on trail rides, and spending hours with family and friends over many cups of coffee.

Paul passed away unexpectedly Friday, March 25, 2016 at his home at the age of 76.
