Tim was born on February 19, 1959 to parents, Jean and Darrell Paul. He graduated from Hoover High School. Tim was employed in the construction material sales industry for the last 20+ years and met several close friends through his work over the years.

Tim loved to spend time with family, friends and being outdoors: fishing, hunting, bike riding, camping, travelling, golfing, and taking his boat out. He loved to cook, smoke meat, and grill for get togethers. He enjoyed spending time at the farm and staying in the cabin. He enjoyed numerous vacations with his family and wife and many enjoyable fishing and hunting trips with his brothers and good friends. Tim also enjoyed shooting competitions, and regularly came in 1st or 2nd place.

Tim is survived by his wife, Kelly, who he was married to for over 41 years and who will miss him dearly; daughters, Katie (Clint) Russell and Taylor Paul; grandson, Creed Russell; granddaughter, Lydia Russell; brothers, Chris Paul (Sherry), Scott Paul (Mary), and Terry Paul (Kelly); mother-in-law, Rita McGrath; brothers-in-law Jerry and Bill McGrath; sisters-in-Law, Colleen (Dave) Smith and Kathy (Joe) Roush; best friend, Mike Williams who was like a 4th brother for many years; aunt, Bev Kane (Chico); numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and their families; and his 4-legged buddies, Aspen and Whiskey. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jean and Darrell Paul; sister, Penny Paul, father-in-law, Art McGrath, and grandparents.

Tim was always willing to help others. He was an organ donor and regularly donated blood. Through his generosity he will give sight to someone, something his sister, Penny didn’t have as she was blind at birth.

Tim will be deeply missed and was very much loved by all his family and friends.
