Paul Amis, 89, died on Monday, April 30th, 2018 after hospitalization for injuries sustained in a fall at home. Born Thomas Marshall Chisholm in Laurel, MS, on November 17th 1928 and orphaned at an early age, Paul was lovingly adopted into the A. B. Amis, Jr. family in Newton in 1936. Paul enjoyed an idyllic childhood, popular in school, lettering in football and basketball at Newton High School, and graduating in 1946. Following a two-year hitch in the US Navy, Paul enrolled at ECJC in Decatur in 1948, later transferring to Mississippi Southern in Hattiesburg, where he met and married Myra Jean Gibbs before completing his degree in Physical Education in 1952.

Paul's real talent, however, lay in sales, giving rise to career moves to Jackson, Natchez, and Newton before finally settling the family, which now included son Mike, in Forest in 1967, close to lots of Jean's kinfolks. Paul loved sports, guns, the outdoors, and his family.

Paul was predeceased in 2017 by his wife Jean, and is survived by his son Mike, grandson Marshall, brother A.B., and nephews Paul, Bill and Mark. Following cremation, family will hold private services at a later date.
