Paul's mother taught him to work with stained glass and together they created stained glass windows for Faith Lutheran Church, Bellingham; Trinity Lutheran, Culbertson, Mont.; and windows for Burkitts' home. He was a man of many talents and, if you needed your oil changed or help in building a gazebo and deck, Paul was there to help. Paul enjoyed garage sales, sports, hunting and fishing, golf, bowling, motorcycling and "hydroponic" gardening.

Memorials may be made to the Faith Lutheran Scholarship Fund. You may share your thoughts and memories of Paul in the online memorial guest book at www.molesfuneralhomes.com.
