Paul Michael Obituary

Paul A. "Sarge"

Paul A. "Sarge" Michael, 86, of Toledo, Ohio passed away August 13, 2014. Paul was born in Lexington, Alabama on June 15, 1928. He was raised in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee where he met the love of his life, Fredia. She preceded him in death in 2012 after 59 years of marriage.

Paul joined the Army in 1949 and served 20 years; retiring in 1969 as a 1st Sergeant. He proudly served his country during the Korean and Vietnam wars. After he retired from the military he was employed at GM Powertrain, retiring after 20 years in 1989. Paul and Fredia then traveled the U.S. and Canada, sometimes taking the grandsons along. Paul loved his grandsons, watching the "car races," and doing circle word puzzles. Breakfast at "Bob's" was another favorite pastime he enjoyed, especially the past few years.

Paul was preceded in death by his wife, Fredia; his brother, James O'Neal Michael and sisters, Maggalene Springer Phillips, Mattie Methvin and Mildred Michael. Paul is survived by his daughter, Paulette (Keith) Dunlap; his son, Paul A. (Denise) Michael II and his grandsons, Bryan Dunlap, Cory (Kelly Murphy) Dunlap of Cincinnati, OH and Devin Michael. He is also survived by his brothers, Reaber Michael of Macon, GA and J.C. Michael of Leoma, TN.
