Stephen E. Paull
Born in Preston, Idaho, on June 15, 1937, he passed on peacefully at home May 12, 2011.
He is survived by his wife Brenda; daughter Tasha; stepson Michael; four grandchildren; two brothers, Armand and David; three goofy Labs, and several hundred garlic plants.
He enjoyed life and his many, many friends enjoyed him. He told stories like few others and his family and friends will retell his stories far into the future. His attitude was amazing. He laughed a lot and made all those who knew him the better for it. As one friend said, "He was a gift to us all; he never passed on a good time."
He had many interests (read passions). First and foremost, he loved his wife Brenda, and then in no particular order, he loved his family and friends, his dogs, and all other animals, especially the large elk herd that invaded his garlic beds every winter, golf, his farm, especially his fourteen varieties of garlic, his teepee, his tractor, golf, and many other things including GOLF and of course his garlic beds. He was a good artist (he called his stuff doodles) and a talented photographer.
He had so many interests that made him interesting. AND HE LOVED LIFE.
So let’s gather in Oakley, at the end of Paull lane on Saturday, June 4, about noon to laugh and cry and celebrate a life of one of the great ones. For sure, for sure.
“If you cannot love your neighbor as yourself, no matter who they are, start by looking in the mirror and see what changes need to be made from within.”
