Paul was a wonderful man, devoted to his wife, Sonia and children. He will be missed by all who called him husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He made us laugh and showed his love of life. It is a rare person that comes into our lives and brings us more peace with his presence. Rest in peace.

Sending my deepest sympathy in the passing of Cousin Paul to the family. I grew up around the Kuehner cousin's as my Dad their Uncle Bill was close them. I'm so sorry I didn't know in time to be with the family but you all are in my prayers. I would really appreciate it if Bobby or Jeannie could email me to give me addresses. Rest in Peace Paul. Safe in the Arms of God!

Deeply saddened to hear this news. Paul was a great man and always turned our conversations back to God. In fact, I’ve missed our conversations ever since I left Licking Heights. He once said to me “everything you need to know is in Proverbs.” He will sorely be missed! May he rest in peace.

I am a teacher at the middle school. Paul sometimes cleaned my room after school, and we would always get to talking! I so enjoyed our conversations! He took great care of us and was always quick with a smile! My condolences to his family. He will be so missed.
