Grady Curtis Paulk, age 57, of Geneva, Ala., passed away peacefully in his sleep during the early morning hours of Nov. 29. Born on Dec. 3, 1955, he attended Campbellton School through the third grade and attended Malone School and Cottonwood High School before graduating from Graceville High School in 1973. He used his unique talent as a floral designer to create beautiful arrangements throughout the area from Dothan to Panama City, Pensacola, Marianna, and Graceville. Honored to serve as the 1994-1995 Southeast Director of the Alabama State Florists Association, his other interests included vintage cars, classic movies, and cooking. During the last few years, his faithful German shepherd, Gretchen, helped him cope with recurring health problems.
