Paul was born December 15, 1933, in New Boston, Ohio. He passed away on Monday, October 14, 2019, at Danbury Senior Living in Columbus. Paul was a toolmaker and had been employed with Rockwell, Boeing and McDonnell Douglas, from which he retired. He attended Jersey Baptist Church and was a member of the YMCA in Pataskala. Paul enjoyed restoring old cars and was very proud of his 1955 Crown Victoria for which he won several awards. He was a Mr. Fix-It and was known to say that if you stare at something long enough, you’ll figure it out. He loved his family dearly and enjoyed playing cards in recent years with Mark and Jennifer.
He is survived by seven children, Pamela K. Taylor of Baltimore, Diane Lynn Wiley of Pataskala, Paula Ann (Matthew) Beal of Millersport, Mark E. (Jennifer) Wiley of Baltimore, Lori Marie Thompson of Pataskala, Roger Allen (Christine) Wiley of Baltimore and Karen Beth (Chad) Moyer of Pataskala; 13 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; sisters, Annetta Bricker of Portsmouth and Patty (Gary) Mader of Groveport; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Flora (Miller) Wiley; his beloved wife, Doris Ann Wiley, whom he married April 14, 1956 and who preceded him in death on December 2, 2007; a brother, Don Wiley; and two sisters, Edna Jenkins and Donna Belle Bailey.
