Paul Koenig Obituary
Paul George Koenig, 74, Algoma, died Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011, at the Algoma Long Term Care Unit with his family all around him. He was born Nov. 30, 1936, in Black Creek, Kewaunee County, to George and Mayme (Kulhanek) Koenig.

Paul graduated from the Algoma High School in 1954 and worked two years at the U.S. Plywood in Algoma. Paul married LeVerle Zimmerman on Sept. 8, 1956, in Algoma. The couple purchased Paul's family farm and ran that from 1956 to 1965. Paul and LeVerle then ran Koenig's Bar from 1965 until the present. While running the bar Paul also had a painting business called Paul's Decorators which he ran until about 1996. He was a past member of the Algoma Lions Club, Knights of Columbus with a Fourth Degree Status and was past Supervisor for the Town of Ahnapee.

Paul cherished the time he spent with his family. He also loved watching the birds and squirrels and listening to Polkas and he never passed up the opportunity to buy a "Birthday Drink" for his customers.

Paul is survived by his wife of 55 years LeVerle; his three surviving children, Paula (Dan) Presslein, Paul (Lisa) Koenig and Denise Koenig, all of Algoma; four grandchildren, Matt Bair, Kewaunee; David (Rachel) Presslein, North Carolina; Jeffrey Presslein (fiancee, Shelby Swiggum), U.S. Army Fort Carson, Colo.; and Danielle Koenig, Algoma; one sister, Joyce (Wagner) Klaubauf, Sturgeon Bay; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Germaine Entringer, Herbert Zimmerman, Myra Michaletz and Ethel Zimmerman; many nieces and nephews.
