Paul graduated from Green Bay West High School. He served in the United States
Army during the Vietnam War. Upon returning to Green Bay, Paul worked at Northwest
Engineering and later at Sexton Corp Wisconsin.
Paul’s greatest accomplishment was his sobriety. He enjoyed many years with his
family and friends doing a variety of activities such as meeting his nephew Pat Hoaglan
at several area establishments and having his diet coke and going up North with his
brothers and staying overnight at Howard’s Silver Cliff Cottage. He looked forward to
evening campfires, taking casino trips to Carter, Bowler and Moe Lake and having his
favorite steak sandwich at Dockside. Just this summer Paul learned to kayak and
thoroughly enjoyed the scenic views of the Northwoods. He was looking forward to next
Paul was more of a listener than a talker during his lifetime. He will be missed dearly by
his family who take comfort knowing that before his passing he was happy and content.

Randall (Linda) Gezella, Carol (Scott) Chadwick, Wendy (Paul) Jarvi and Keith (Nola)
