Franklin Carl Paul Obituary
Franklin Carl Paul It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Franklin Carl Paul, 63 of Austin, Texas. Frank was born in Bishop, Texas on December 23, 1949 to Charles and Olga Paul, and entered into eternal peace on Thursday, September 19, 2013. Frank graduated from Texas A&M University in 1972 with a Civil Engineering degree and shortly thereafter joined his brother, Carl, and his wife, Barbara, in their golf business - eventually to be known as Golfsmith. A member of Great Hills Country Club for over 30 years, Frank was an avid and talented golfer, winning many tournaments and awards. A mentor to many and successful businessman, above all he will be remembered as a loving and loyal family man who was devoted to his wife of 35 years, Dorthy. Their marriage was blessed with two sons, Frank and Glenn. Frank had a strong faith in the Lord and found peace in prayer at Triumphant Love Lutheran Church where he and Dorthy joined shortly after marrying. Frank joins his brother, Charles "Chuck" Paul, and his parents, Charles and Olga Paul, in Heaven. He is survived by his loving wife, Dorthy Buehring Paul, and their sons, Frank Paul, his wife, Emily and grandchildren Emerson and Cameron of Dallas, and Glenn Paul, his fiancée, Sarah Irvin of Austin. He is also survived by his brother, Carl Paul, and wife, Barbara, and many nieces and nephews of Austin, and sister-in-law, Sharon Radecka and husband, Dick, and nephews of Oklahoma. Sustained by his faith and the love from friends and family, he endured an eight month battle with non-skin melanoma cancer. He and Dorthy wish to thank everyone deeply for their prayers and support. A visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Cook-Walden Chapel of the Hills located at 9700 Anderson Mill Road. A funeral will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at Triumphant Love Lutheran Church located at 9508 Great Hills Trail in Austin TX.
