Paul Lawrence Predzik, son of John and Gail Predzik was born on the 4th of July, 1955 in Milwaukee, WI. Paul had two biological brothers. Due to his family situation Paul was put into foster care at the age of 2. From that time on he lived and was raised by his foster care family in the Wittenberg and Birnamwood area of Wisconsin and graduated from Birnamwood High School. Following High School Paul entered the work force and eventually enrolled in Online Technical College, where he studied private investigation and took paralegal courses. Paul had a knack for and was very good at writing. He also studied cooling and heating, and he worked primarily in the hotel maintenance field. Paul was a jack of all trades when it came to fixing all types of problems and he was very good at trouble shooting. Paul had lived in the Minneapolis area for several years where he was a Maintenance Technician in a high rise. At this time in Paul's life he also worked as a D.J. in a Minneapolis night club. He truly loved this job as he had a great love for music and loved to entertain people. He also took a great interest and was very fond of radio/news/sports broadcasting. Paul eventually moved back to the Wausau area where he continued doing hotel maintenance. Paul was always very captivated by the nightly and world news. Paul enjoyed reading about the law and spiritual books. He enjoyed the library and researching things out. He also liked watching the Vikings football team, coaching youth sports, and fixing anything that needed it. Paul was instructed In the martial arts and excelled very greatly at it. His sense of wit and humor made many people laugh and smile. He enjoyed the simple things in life and spending time with family and friends. Paul will be remembered as a kind man, always willing to help others when they came to him for advice with legal, mechanical and spiritual problems. Paul also through out his life donated to several different charities, especially charities for under privileged children and church organizations, and also working for the Salvation Army. Paul was also a good listener and a friend to all. His life revolved around his strong faith and he was certainly a positive witness to others. Through out a very difficult life at times, his faith in God never wavered as his love for God was always strong and everlasting. The last thing he did nightly was to read scriptures from his bible.
