It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of our husband, our father, our grandfather, our friend.
After a three year battle with lung cancer, Paul Jerome Owen quietly passed away on August 3rd, 2011 at the tender age of 74.
Paul will be remembered most for his love of the finer things in life. He enjoyed playing his guitar, singing with his wife and attending Blue Grass festivals. Later in life he become quite fond of metal detecting, gold panning and geo caching. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends and loved to travel with the love of his life.
Paul is predeceased by his brothers Charles (Chuck) and Bob and daughter Lynne and survived by his loving wife Jean (Jeannie), his son Jerry, daughters Diane (Craig), Christine, Lori (Shane), and Susan (Jay) and his many grandchildren – Sharmayne, Charity, Breanna, Jessica, Kelsi, Katey, Geremi, Brannon and Emma.
Although Paul is now free from pain and suffering and in a much better place, he will be greatly missed by family and friends.
Special thanks go to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice House for their support and kindness through his final days.
By request there will be no formal service but a celebration of life will be held by family at a later date.
