Paul grew up on a farm and farming was always close to his heart.

He also built miniature buildings from the farm that he grew up on. He served his country in the United States Air Force as a Sgt. Crew Chief during the Vietnam Conflict. He had a deep Christian faith and he was deeply grateful to his loving Moldenhauer family for taking him into their family and treating him like a son.
