Paul loved everything that had to do with the outdoors including camping and being on the water, to astronomy and having a love for all animals, especially dogs. In his free time, he enjoyed reading and his love for cars got him involved with Mustang and Corvette clubs. In the winter, Paul liked snowmobiling and was proud to say that he was an officer of the Iowa State Snowmobile Association. Paul was a very meticulous planner. His sister stated he was a great big brother who offered lots of guidance.

Paul is survived by his wife, Amy, of Watertown, SD; his mother, June Wagoner of Mosinee, WI; his sister, Christina (Trent) Ruchti of Mosinee, WI; his in-laws, Jim and Mary Balvin; his sisters-in-law, Crystal (Aaron) Kemnitz of Claire City, SD, Dawn (Rob) Clearwater of Denver, CO and Barb Terry of Brookings, SD; his brother-in-law, Russ (Marci) Balvin of Norfolk, NE; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Paul was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Lyle (Mary) Wagoner; his maternal grandparents, Cletus (Jack) Calder; his mother’s identical twin sister, Joan (Francis) Kopsa, and his great-aunt and uncle, Elton (June) Wagoner.

Paul’s sister and family may plan a Memorial Service at a date yet to be determined in Denver, Iowa. Condolences may be sent to Christina Ruchti or June Wagoner in Mosinee, WI.
