Paul J. Dolmetsch Obituary
Paul James Dolmetsch, 66, passed away on January 3rd, 2017 in Austin Texas where he had resided for the past 10 years.

Paul was born on August 5th, 1950 in Arden Delaware to Ruth Gillner and Richard Dolmetsch. He attended Brandywine High School and then the University of Delaware, graduating in 1973 with a degree in Psychology. Soon after, he became a Vista Volunteer in Henderson Texas where he provided family outreach to children in crisis.

In 1978 Paul earned a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas in Austin and shortly thereafter relocated his family to Vermont in order to join the United Counseling Service in Bennington as a psychiatric social worker. Paul co-authored two books: "Teens Talk about Alcohol and Alcoholism" and "The Kids' Book About Single Parent Families". In 1996, Paul opened a SAAB repair shop on Benmont Avenue and continued to work as a well-respected mechanic both in Vermont and in Austin Texas where he was much beloved by his many clients.

Paul will always be remembered for his sense of humor, determination and focus on his work, and most importantly for his indiscriminate love of any cup of coffee no matter how old.

Paul is survived by his two children and their families: Stephanie Mulligan, her husband Eamon, and their children Liam and Nora, and Jason Dolmetsch, his wife Alexina Jones and their daughter Lena. He is also survived by the mother of his children, Gail Mauricette, as well as his siblings Jack Dolmetsch (DE), Robert Dolmetsch (IL), Katherine Kelly (FL) and their families.

He leaves behind a wife, Daija Dolmetsch, in Austin, Texas.

Stephanie and Jason will be hosting a memorial service at the Bennington Station Restaurant on Saturday February 4th at 2:00 pm and encourage anyone with fond memories of Paul to attend and share their stories.
