1965 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
HANSROTE, Paul Scott

Paul Scott Hansrote ('Pablo') born Aug. 21, 1965, left this world far too early on July 27, 2014. Survived by his beloved wife, Joanne Eichorn Hansrote, and devoted children Skylar Elizabeth and Christopher William, loving parents Dr. Ronald and Mildred ('Mitzi') Hansrote, sister Linda, brothers Mark (Christine) and Roger (Ligya), and many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws. Pablo brought laughter, love and light to all who knew him. He graduated from Lake Worth Christian High School in 1983, attended the University of Florida and started pursuing his life-long passion, flying, while in Gainesville. He began flying skydivers in Clewiston in the early 1980's, then embarked on a career in business aviation, starting as a First Officer flying Lear jets for BizJet. He progressed through the pilot ranks, gaining experience in a multitude of business aircraft, eventually working as Chief Pilot for Island Records flying Citations for a number of years. His career progressed further in aircraft management, culminating in flying Gulfstreams and Citations all over the world as a Senior Captain for GAMA Aviation. Along his journey he developed a love of freefall skydiving, making his first skydive in the mid-eighties and amassing over 2000 jumps. Pablo loved the skies because it was the closest place to Heaven. He'll be there watching over his wife, children, family and friends. Services will be at Christ Fellowship, 9905 Southern Boulevard, Royal Palm Beach at 2 pm Thursday July 31; visitation at 1 pm immediately prior. In lieu of flowers or other commemorations, the family prefers that donations be made to Skylar and Christopher's educations. Donations may be made payable to Skylar & Christopher Hansrote Education Trust Fund or you make an electronic donation to www.gofundme.com/c9x3o4.
