Emma (Haezebrouck) Reuter in Detroit, Michigan. The family moved to Hamilton in December 1947, when the General Motors, Fisher Body Plant opened. He was educated in St. Peter School and graduated Hamilton Catholic High School in 1957. He then completed the Tool and Die apprenticeship at the General Motors, Fisher Body Plant and retired as Tool and Die supervisor after 30 years of service in 1988 upon the closing of the Hamilton plant. He served in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1964, being assigned to S.E.T.A.F, Vicenza, Italy, and Mannhein, Germany. Paul was always proud that he was a first generation American but also proud of his German heritage. On April 12, 1969, in St. Joseph Church he married Joan A. Gallagher. His life was his family, his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was the #1 fan of his grandchildren, always encouraging them in their lives.

He was a man of integrity with a heart of gold, quick wit, humor and loved to read. He was always faithful to his Catholic upbringing, loved to sing at mass, as a member of Sacred Heart Church. Paul got a kick out of hauling kids to ball games and enjoyed simple things like mowing the lawn. Many happy hours were spent with family and friends boating at Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow Lake. He and his stein club buddies enjoyed over 65 years of friendship.
