Paul was a loyal member of our Lodge and chair of the fish and game cte for many years.  He said he once saw a cougar sunning itself on the roof of a shed, near the lake.  We will miss Paul as he was always ready to help.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Rena Grissinger and Mary Gruber on the passing of Paul Sunday, my first cousin, once removed.  Paul was a first cousin and good friend of my Dad, Lee Sunday, who passed away in 1997.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So Sorry to hear about Paul. He will be missed by all who knew him.  He will be remembered in our thoughts and prayers!
