Paul Englert Obituary
Paul E. Englert
Paul E. Peanuts Englert, our beautiful father, brother, Pop Pop, and friend, went Home to be with his beloved wife Betty Lou (Blose) Englert on Monday, January 14, 2013. Before he passed on, he was surrounded by his loving family and friends at the Phoebe Home in Allentown, where the angels there took such good care of him. Just as he was here on Earth, rest assured, Paul will be very busy in Heaven too- helping people, driving everyone around, and fixing things. Born in Allentown, he was the son of the late Louis A. and Mary C. (Kuebler) Englert. Paul was a WW II Army Veteran, a member of American Legion Post # 426 of Coplay, a member and past President of Crest Manor Sertoma Club, and a past District Governor of Sertoma. He was also a member of St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in Catasauqua- one of the many churches he and his brothers, Buddy and Louie, helped to remodel or build as the owners of their fathers general contracting firm, Louis A. Englert, Inc. After retiring in 1991, Peanuts drove for Metro Plus (f/k/a Palmeri Transportation) until 2000, when he was struck with and paralyzed by MRSA. Forever determined, Paul defied all odds by not only surviving but by learning to walk again as well. He was a fighter; yet, above all, he was happiest when helping and serving others. Survivors: Daughter, Tammie Lee Englert at the home in North Catasauqua that he built for his bride in 1955; daughter, Lee Anne S. Englert, her husband, Peter Dubro, and Pauls grandson, Lakelan Paul, all in Doylestown, PA; brother, Louis J. Englert and his wife, Lois, of Whitehall; sisters, Anna Schrammel and Elizabeth Betty Kloiber, both of Allentown; sister-in-law, LaRue Schaffer of Coplay; his many loving nieces and nephews; and his coonhound, ORiley, at home. He was predeceased by his brother, Joseph L. Buddy Englert. Services: 11 a.m., Saturday at the St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church, 417 Howertown Rd., Catasauqua. Calling hours: Friday, January 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Stephens Funeral Home, Inc., 1335-37 Linden St., Allentown and Saturday, January 19 from 10 to 11 a.m. in the church. www.stephensfuneral.com.
