They lived in various communities in North Dakota and Montana with 37 years living in Bowman, ND. Paul and Luella recently moved to Bismarck.

Paul enjoyed traveling to his grandkids plays, sports, and music events to watch them perform and cheer them on. They were his pride and joy.

Paul loved to visit with people whether by his meat display at the grocery store or out flagging traffic during road construction season. Paul’s laugh will be missed by all, he always had a smile on his face and a good joke he eagerly welcomed. When Paul wasn’t busy working, you could find him putting on miles with Lou finding a Polka Fest. He loved to dance and visit with the many friends he made throughout the years. Another longtime love of Paul’s, was to get together with friends and play pinochle.
