Paul Simkulet Obituary
Paul Simkulet
Born on May 7th, 1933 to parents, William and Mary Simkulet, Paul Simkulet grew up in Skaneateles Falls, New York with his three brothers, John ("Jackie"), William ("Billy") and David. It was in high school when Paul would meet his beautiful and loyal wife of 60 years, Jean.
Two years after his high school graduation in 1950, Paul and Jean would marry in New York. It was just one year later, in 1953, that the two would set their sights on a new adventure in Houston, Texas. Soon after arriving in Houston, Paul found his calling with McCorvey Sheet Metal Works, where he would remain for 45 years until his retirement in 1998. Through-out their lives in Houston, Paul and Jean remained dedicated parishioners of St. Timothy's Episcopal Church.
Paul and Jean would have four amazing children: Charles Simkulet, George Simkulet, Mary Pugh, and Peggy Slay. From these children, they have had the pleasure of six delightful grandchildren: Kelli Anderson, Stacy McCollum, Sarah Clemens, Paul Simkulet, Debra Rollo and Russell Lee Slay. From these grandchildren, Paul and Jean have had the additional pleasure of being granted eight great-grandchildren.
The Family wishes to extend a special thank you to Paul's granddaughter Kelli for her unbridled persistence and dedication in making Paul's last several months as comfortable and rewarding as possible. The Family would like to also extend its sincere appreciation to the selfless dedication and professionalism exhibited by the countless physicians, nurses and medical staff that cared for Paul through the later part of his life. This was especially the case with the Family's experience with the Houston Hospice. As such, we ask that in lieu of sending flowers, we humbly request that you donate to the Houston Hospice in memory of Paul Simkulet.
In loving memory of Paul Simkulet: a devoted mentor, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and husband. May 7th, 1933 to June 11th, 2012.
