Paul Schini, 89, passed away peacefully on Thursday May 18 with his son and grandson by his side. He was a loving husband, brother, father and grandfather. He made friends wherever he went with his reliable smile, conservative views and his steadfast faith in Christ.
Paul was a veteran of the United States Navy, a carpenter for 14 years and a Sears Home Appliance Technician for 26 years. Paul could build or fix just about anything and had a longtime interest in woodworking. He retired to Palmdale RV Resort in Los Fresnos, Texas, full time in 2008 and was an active member of St. John's Lutheran Church in San Benito, Texas. Prior to moving to Texas Paul was a member of Good Shepard Lutheran Church in Kokomo, Indiana.
Paul was born to the late Emma (Braun) and Gustav Schini on Dec. 28, 1933 in Peru, Indiana. He had three brothers and three sisters. Paul found lifelong love and companionship in his dear wife Wilma Metcalf, whom he married on Jan. 17, 1965 in Howard County, Indiana. They celebrated 54 years of marriage together before Wilma passed away on Feb. 2, 2019. Paul and Wilma were blessed with three sons. One – Gustav – died at just 1 1/2 years old.
Paul is survived by his sons William Schini and Paul C. Schini and by 6 grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 4:00 P.M. on Monday, June, 26, 2023 at Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer., 705 E. Southway Blvd, Kokomo, IN. Paul will be interred next to Wilma at the St John's Lutheran Cemetery in Peru, Indiana. Paul was a great American and will be missed by all of us who knew him. We would like to thank the Windsor Nursing home for all the care and love shown to Paul over these last few weeks.
