Paul retired from Maibach Tractor & Becker Farms Trucking. He was a member of St. Peter Lutheran Church.
Paul liked collecting everything! He was especially proud of his 1000 + piece toy tractor collection. He also was proud of his antique Oliver tractors and his antique cars, of which his 1970 Charger was his favorite. He loved to go to car and tractor shows and tractor pulls. He enjoyed cheering on his grandkids in all their sporting events. He spent his last week before he got sick at the Wayne County Fair watching his grandkids show. He never missed a fair in 50+ years.
