He graduated from Covert High School in Michigan on June 4, 1959. Paul married his beloved wife Lesley Diane Walker Rothrock in 1981 and was married for forty years. As a child, Paul enjoyed picking blueberries and taking some home to his mom to make fresh blueberry pies. He enjoyed swimming in Lake Michigan many times and was also in a bowling league, winning many trophies. Paul always took time to teach all of his children how to bowl. They fondly remember how he carefully instructed them where to stand and which arrow on the floor to aim. Paul and his wife, Lesley, did a lot of traveling across the states for the families. He tried very hard not to miss graduations, weddings, or other family gatherings. Paul was a patient and caring family man who loved all his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
