He is also survived by his parents of Dorchester; sons, Zachary (Kelly), Bloomington; Zebulon (Christina), Ocean Springs, Miss.; and Zekiel (KaDee Stroleny), Aurora, Colo.; granddaughters, Kiva and Zara Schobernd, both of Bloomington; sisters, Deborah Boozer, Alton, and Karen (Keith) Harris, Dorchester; his in-laws, Paul and Loretta Hanks, Hardin; and several nieces and nephews.

Paul was a graduate of Calhoun High School, Eastern Illinois University and Illinois State University.

He was a teacher and school principal for many years and last worked as a placement officer at ISU.

He loved his family passionately and was an avid collector of antique tools, books and weird stuff.


From Jim -- for whatever reason, Paul and I corresponded frequently. He was quite eloquent and I shall miss our exchanges. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

avatar When I started reading some of Paul's letters to the Galoots, I noticed that my
own name came up a few times. I didn't correspond a lot one-on-one with Paul,
but we seemed to follow and discuss the same topics a lot. I wish we could have
met in real life. I bet we would have had some great debates.
