The MLC church family joins with the Grotrian family in remembering the 82 years that Paul walked with God here on this earth.  Paul was a farmer through and through, from a young man until late in life. In addition to raising various crops, he also had a cow/calf operation for many years. He had a real love for nature that influenced him in many activities and decisions.  Paul will be remembered for his smile and his kind and gentle nature.

We extend our sympathy to Delores, his wife of 62 years; his children and their spouses, Arlen and Kathie Grotrian, Lori and Craig Behrends; Linda Post; and Jim and Lisa Grotrian; as well as his nine grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren   He was preceded in death by his daughter, Kathy Grotrian and a son-in-law, Stanley Post.   Delores, Arlen & Kathie; grandchildren Andy & Amber Grotrian, Joel Grotrian, and Tracie & Eric Beethe; great-grandchildren, Reese, Addison, and Ella Grotrian, Rylie, Baker, and Kyler Beethe are a part of the MLC church family.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 
From now on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, 
which the LORD, the righteous judge, will give me on that day, 
and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.  2 Timothy 4:7-8!/Obituary
