Paul worked as an Advent Christian Pastor, a dairy farmer, and as a truck driver and heavy equipment operator in the construction field. However, he considered it his true life’s work and calling to share God’s word, and to reach out to help others in any way he could. He did this from the pulpit, on the work site, and everywhere he went. Paul led by example, teaching his family the importance of Faith, family, and hard work. He touched the lives of many, through his faith, kindness, friendship, and generosity, and to all who knew him.
In honor of Paul’s memory, he and his family ask that you would pay forward any kindness he showed you, and carry on his mission of showing God’s love to others.
