Paul Martin Eastwold, 75, passed away Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, at the Ostrander Care and Rehab.
Paul was born to Lloyd and Delia (Lawson) Eastwold on May 1, 1938. He graduated from LeRoy-Ostrander High School in 1956, and served in the Army, stationed in Seoul, South Korea, from 1956-58 during the Korean War. Paul married Jacqueline Richardson on Nov. 10, 1962, in Spring Valley. For over 50 years, Paul and Jacque farmed near Chester, Iowa. They celebrated their 51st anniversary and were blessed with five children.
He had one special dance partner, Jacque, but taught his daughters and made room for others on his dance card. He spent many winters restoring antique Case tractors, cars, and trucks with his life-long friend, Robert Bly. Community was another priority in Paul's life. He served on the Beaver Township Board, LeRoy Rural Fire Board and Bethlehem Cemetery Board, and was an active member of the LeRoy Lutheran Church.
Paul is survived by his wife, Jacque; daughters, Micki (Brian) Stark, Mankato, Lynnette (Paul) Miller, Racine, Angie (Justin) Kennedy, LeRoy and Jen (Jun) Eastwold-Cho, Hopkins; grandchildren, Teresa (Jon) Hulst, Kiel Davis, Nick Stark, Ryan Stark, Grant Kennedy, Grace Kennedy and Greg Kennedy; and three great-grandchildren; and his siblings, Alice (Don) Dahl, Florence Lindstrom, Eric (Kristin) Eastwold, Mary (Murray) Hanson.
He was preceded in death by his parents and son, Gregory.
