Paul C. Scholl, age 90 of Acme, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, Oct. 30, 2020. Paul was born in Mancelona, MI on May 5, 1930 to George and Blanche (Larsen) Scholl. He was raised working on the family farm, and attended Mancelona schools, graduating in 1949. Upon graduation from High School, Paul was drafted by the US Army in 1951, and served in the Korean Conflict. Paul was employed as a supervisor by the US Fish & Wildlife Service in East Jordan, retiring in 1992. He also spent many years working at his turkey farm in Mancelona.

On July 11, 1981 at St. Francis Church in Traverse City, he married Mary Benak. They loved to spend their time together traveling, and separating the year between being “snowbirds” going to Florida camping and returning for the spring and summer in Michigan. Paul enjoyed his daily exercises, walks, and riding his bike. He was active as a Shriners and a veteran and marched in many local parades for both organizations.

He was a very creative individual, and loved woodworking. Many in his family received gifts of all varieties that he lovingly crafted, ranging from cradles and rocking horses to small pieces of furniture. He and Mary also spent many years square dancing as well as ballroom dancing and continued that right up until 2017. They were also member of Christ the King Catholic Church in Williamsburg.

Paul is survived by his wife Mary, and their children; David Scholl, Tony Benak, Lori Silk, Connie (Mike) Costa, Cindy (Mike) Hubbell and Angela (David) Wilson. Also surviving are 13 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, and siblings George (Ann) Scholl, Conrad Scholl, Joyce (Wayne) Ingles, and Karen (Steve) Fritz. Besides his parents, he is preceded in death by a sister Mary Lou Alexander.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, November 21st at 11:00 am from Christ the King Church in Acme. The family will accept visitors at the church beginning at 10:00 a.m. Interment of his ashes will take place in the spring at Fairview Cemetery in Mancelona, with military honors presented.

Paul was a great big brother to his sister Mary. I was with Mary Lou a lot at Paul's and always treated like family. Prayers for Mary and the rest of the family.

Mary & Family,

I have two memories come to me that are vivid in my mind. The first was when we met in Texas at a club or bar that had a band and dancing, Not square dancing! Six us including Darlings, Bob and I and you and Paul. He wanted to dance constantly and you Mary were trying to rest, but he continued. I thought you would pass out. Fun day!
The other was when you and Paul were helping us set up for the summer in our motorhome on you property in Williamsburg and he was finding the source of water with that stick. We had never seen that done before. He was a special guy, Mary, and will be missed. Love and prayers, Barb Staron

Working for Paul on the Turkey farm was my first job. He was a fair and kind boss as well as an awesome relative. I am glad he lived a long life.
