Chansler of Lawrenceville, Illinois; two sister-in-laws: Joan Rissman of Bloomington, Indiana, and Bernadine White of Manassas, Virginia; twelve grandchildren: Shannon (Michael) Meehan, Angela Getts, Cassandra (Joel) Mills, Jennifer (Nate) Alexander, David (Mychelle) Blythe, Sabrina (Kerry) Kocher, Stephanie (DJ) VanWormer, Jessica (Kyle) Clodfelter, Kevin (Julie) Edmondson-Pfeiffer, Jason Edmondson-Pfeiffer, Krystal Edmondson, Karabeth Edmondson.

He worked at Ashland Oil Company for 37 years. Paul loved Auctions and yard sales. He enjoyed bowling, mowing, and gardening. Paul was an avid fisherman. He also enjoyed pecan picking. He always saw the positive in every single situation. He enjoyed talking about (and showing off) all of his collections. He selflessly gave to anyone, especially his family. He loved visiting with people, and he loved the time spent with his family. His most used phrase for the last few years was “I just love every day!”; which he lived out to the fullest.
