He also enjoyed cooking, hunting morel mushrooms, gathering with friends and family, and cheering on his favorite team, the Green Bay Packers!

Paul is survived by his daughters, Sarah (Brad) Argall and Cally (Alex Plouff) Dittrich; sisters, Jackie (David) Bruce and Jeanne Kivi; brother, Norman (Kathy) Dittrich; grandchildren, Krista, Drew, and Jace; brother-in-law, Brian (Marcy) Cox; several nieces and a nephew, cousins, his “best cousin”: Ron Kremer, and his rescue dog Bonamer.

Paul is preceded in death by his parents.
