David Garland Paul, 86, passed away at the Albuquerque Veteran's Hospital on Thursday, January 14, 2016.

He is preceded in death by his daughter, Amy Valdez, and survived by his wife, Zita, and his sister, Marilyn Beale of Florida. He leaves behind six children, David Paul, Jr., Daniel Paul, Christina Davidson, Melinda Greenspan, Pamela Blondin and Jeremy Paul; grandchildren include Christopher Mead, Jeremiah and Joshua Blondin, Emily Nichols, Daniel and Christian Valdez, Aaron, Hanah and Sarah Greenspan, Julia and Elise Paul; and three great-granddaughters, Alex, Sam, Charlie; and one great grandson, Ryan.

David enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 16. He served briefly in WWII, and then the Korean Conflict, serving with valor at the Inchon Landing as well as the Chosin Reservoir, and was a proud member of the NM Chapter of the Chosin Few.

He was a member of Plumber's UA Local Union No. 16 of Omaha, NE, and NM Plumber's Local Union No. 412.

He loved living in Belen and his close proximity to the numerous casinos where he exercised his arm at the one-armed bandits. He loved winning almost as much as he loved his family, most especially his beloved wife, Zita.

Memorial service will be held on Wednesday, January 20th, at 2:00 pm at Noblin Funeral Service, Belen, NM.
