Paul retired as a heavy equipment operator in which he worked his way up from various positions in the construction industry. One of his proudest jobs he worked on was the restoration of the state capital. Paul enjoyed playing pool/billiards, watching football as well as his favorite sport of baseball, in which he and his brother, Matildy, were very skilled in growing up in Manor. Paul also very much enjoyed dancing to his favorite Tejano songs as well as listening to his old CDs when he could no longer dance or see clearly. His biggest sense of pride and dedication was his grandchildren who he loved unconditionally every day!
Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Timoteo and Carmen Samaripa, and brothers Joe Samaripa, Jesse Samaripa and Matildy Samaripa Sr and son Albert Samaripa.
