The family of Paul Charles Sohm has received the following condolences.
Marilyn & family,
Very sorry to read of the passing of Paul, my dad and I enjoyed very much talking to Paul when he would stop at Dorr's Produce. You and your family have my thoughts and prayers at this time.
We are very sad to learn of Paul's passing. We fondly remember seeing you at St. Francis, and recall your participation in numerous church-related ministeries. Wishing you and your family solace in the many joyful memories you have of Paul. You are in our thoughts and prayers - God bless.
I am so sorry to see the passing of Paul. I worked with Paul for four years after high school and one year of vocational school at an insurance office downstairs in the Trachsel Dental Studio. Paul was such a kind and humble man. I admired him greatly. One of the best comments from him was, "Bonnie, I admire your accuracy!" He taught me so much about the different types of insurance. I recall his heart surgery from those days too. Our office was so concerned for him, but he recovered nicely. I have thought about him and his family many times over the years. My condolences to Marilyn and all of his children. He will be greatly missed, but he is now with others that we have loved and lost. Rest in Peace, Paul!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Find comfort in all the memories you have shared with your father, he sounds like a great man!
