Paul A. Styer
Paul A. StyerFlagPaul A. Styer 87 of Magnetic Springs, died peacefully Thursday afternoon April 13, 2017 at the home of his daughter in Marysville.

He was born January 7, 1930 in Raymond. In his youth, Paul was raised by his maternal grandparents, along with that came hard work, even though these times were not easy, they helped shape Paul into the man he would become in later life.

He was a very proud veteran of the Navy, serving all over the world. Some of the friendships he made in the service continue to this day, as demonstrated by his dedication to going to his Navy reunions.

A lifelong successful farmer, Paul was very proud to live on his farm in Magnetic Springs. He also retired from B.F. Goodrich in Green Camp where he ran a braider machine for over 30 yrs.
A friend and mentor to many in his beloved Magnetic Springs, Paul was known as a man’s man, a straight shooter and someone not afraid to tell you the truth.

He was a member of the Richwood VFW Post 870 and had served on the funeral detail for many years. Paul had a passion for old tractors, he loved restoring them and going to shows.

Many will miss his wry smile and ornery sense of humor.

On September 7, 1953 in Boston, he married Esther Hope (Fletcher) and she died February 10, 1990, he was also predeceased by his mother Mabel Styer Savage, grandson Marcus Styer and an infant sister.

Surviving are his children: Shellie (Kevin) Boerner of Marysville, Phillip D. Styer of Columbus, Brian P. (Deborah) Styer of St. Mary’s and James M. (Lisette) Styer of Marysville
Grandchildren: Jon (Sara) Styer, Lauren (Matthieu) Patris de Brueil, Adam (Britney Jo) Styer, Austin Styer, Andrew Styer, Emily Hope (Drake Reebel) Styer and Shawn Pugin
Great grandson: Luka Pierre Patris de Brueil
One brother: Robert Styer of Carey

Paul was like a second Father to me, had me driving my first tractor at age 6, an old Ford . I recently purchased one just like it to restore. Paul allowed me to hunt/trap on his land when I was young, Paul was always willing to stop what he was doing and show me how to do work, spent a lot of time working with Paul, even after I was in the Marine Corps and may only be home a day or two, he would find me and there I would be, bailing hay or something on my "Time off". I didn't mind the work because he had given me so much more! I never saw Paul get riled or angry, a quentesential peaceful fun loving Gentleman , I have much respect for him as a man, Father, mentor and Veteran for our great country, I will miss his random phone calls. Safe travels Paul, God Bless.
