Paul Stein

Paul Richard Stein, 50, was surrounded by the love of his family and friends when he was called home to be with His Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He passed peacefully on January 2, 2019.

Born premature on September 14, 1968, in Cheboygan, Michigan, Paul was barely large enough to fill his father’s hand. Paul quickly grew into a boy that would leave his mark on this world. He had a passion for life and experienced it to the fullest, attempting new tasks with gusto, karate, sports, waterskiing, BMX racing hunting, rock climbing. He excelled in these tasks and he excelled in life.

Paul’s passion for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was above all, the driving force in his life. A close second, was his love for his family: wife, Bethany; sons, Ethan-8 and Tristan-2; his mother, Tania; father, Richard; sister, Michelle; nieces, Bianca and Naomi; and nephew, Jonathon.

Paul never knew a stranger. Friends far and wide were a part of who Paul was here on earth. He was always there with a smile, words of wisdom, the shirt off of his back. Paul was a passionate, generous soul that radiated God’s light in all that he did. Those that knew him, loved him deeply.

Those that truly knew Paul, knew that he always wanted to serve in ministry but also those that truly knew Paul, know that his life was just that, a ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ and in that way we believe in our hearts that this day when Paul looks into the face of our Lord, he will hear from his Creator, “Well done, good and faithful servant”.

    I only knew Paul for a year or so, but he never failed to brighten my day when he walked in the pub. He was always quick to ask me how my family was doing, how my own medical problems were going, and, especially, how the rebuilding of my house after Harvey was going. He was truly a prototype of something this earth hadnt yet seen, and his legacy and words will resound in my soul forever. I miss you buddy, maybe soon I can cook you up 4 eggs, 2 strips of bacon(it better not be crispy or you'll send it back), and an avocado with a side of Chipotle aioli.

    Forever in debt to your priceless advice,

    I had the pleasure to work with Paul a few years ago in Nashville, Louisville and Atlanta at tradeshows. He was a client of ours and main point of contact for his company. He was someone that I truly adored working with. His passion about life radiated through him. I would think of him from time to time throughout the years and text or email to check in on him and see how he was. He was always so positive and uplifting such an amazing person, he would always reiterated how blessed he was. Being someone that I was only able to spend a few brief moments of my life with he really had an effect on me. I’m truly saddened to know that Paul is no longer with us and deeply sorry for your loss.

    Paul was a great friend who also happened to be my next door neighbor. I've spent the past week in grief, reflection, and gratitude. I am sad because he is gone, and I am grateful that we were able to share a good portion of our lives together. I terrorized Paul tirelessly: making fun of his blue jeep, his lawn care, and his "fussyness", but he always laughed the loudest at himself. He accused me of only cooking bbq when the wind was out of the south so that the smell would drift straight to his back door and make him hungry. That was not true. I would bbq when the wind was out of the north...... if he was out of town.

    Paul was like a real live action hero: Part John Wayne, part Batman, and part Rock Star, tough as as a marine in battle, but gentle as a puppy if you need a shoulder to cry on. I was not surprised to learn from his Dad that when he cleaned out Paul's office, he found a rather large stack of self-help books. Even though Paul was strong, dependable, and confident, he always knew he could be better and never stopped working on himself. Hi lived large, worked hard, and loved much. He leaves a big hole for those he left behind. But as time passes, and somehow the pain eases, the memories will become sweeter, and we can start filling in that hole with things he left for us. What he left for me: He helped me understand that men can be vulnerable, that it's ok to need help, ok to talk about our problems, and ok to let ourselves be known, be REAL. He helped me understand that a true friend is a good friend all of the time, not just a friend during the good times. AND he left me his secret recipe to the best mojitos known to man. I wish comfort, hope, and peace to Bethany, Ethan, and Tristan, Rick, Tania, and Michelle. Our dear Paul is resting and rejoicing with Jesus and his spirit will live on within us forever!
