He enjoyed working on vehicles and building cabinetry. He had so much knowledge that he was always willing to share. He loved spending time with his family and planning for future vacations with his wife, sister (Wanda) and brother in law (Randy). He was known for his gentle bullying of the people he loved the most. Even when he was picking on family and friends, everyone knew where they stood with him and that he would do anything to help anyone at any time. Paul was preceded in death by his Father, Henry (JR), and his mother, Bennie. Also, two of his siblings Charles Wayne Ellis and Glenda Downs.

You were always so willing to give up your free time to help those of us in need no matter the day or time. Your kindness, generosity and love will live on through each and every one of us that hold your memory close to our hearts. You are and always will be loved. May you find peace and comfort in your new home in Heaven and watch over your family to provide them strength for the days to come.
