Paul E McKee

<p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; On Thursday May 28, 2020 at 7:35 pm Paul McKee passed away at the age of 96 leaving behind his eight plus children, Gail Riemenschneider, Paulette Fuqua USAF RET, Randolph McKee, Debora McKee, Mechelle McKee, Todd McKee, Michael McKee, Tanya McKee and his 23 grand kids and his 39 great grand kids.</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Paul McKee was a hero to many,&nbsp; serving in the Airforce as a Staff Sergeant, he earned one Air Medal, four OLC&#39;s and two Battle Star&#39;s. He was Honorably Discharge in September 11, 1945, but then went on to reenlist in the Army and served two more tours. After serving Paul set out to become some what of a jack of all trades learning any and everything he could but enjoyed his truck driving days the most. In his free time if you didn&#39;t know where he was and couldn&#39;t find him he was most likely on the river fishing, or up in the mountains hunting. Paul was loved by many for his funny, spunky personality that no one could seem to resist and though he is gone he will be missed and always remembered.</p> <h3 style="text-align: center;">Poem written by Shelby Villalta in memory of Paul McKee:</h3> <p style="text-align: center;">Late is the hour as darkness moves in</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Suddenly the sounds of life are quieted and</p> <p style="text-align: center;">take your last breath.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Though surrounded by sadness the weight on</p> <p style="text-align: center;">our hearts is lifted</p> <p style="text-align: center;">No longer are you suffering but flying on</p> <p style="text-align: center;">eagles wings soaring high and free joining</p> <p style="text-align: center;">your fellow wingmen surrounded by white</p> <p style="text-align: center;">clouds in a new morning air</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Bright rises the sun with the promise of life</p> <p style="text-align: center;">and hope that our memories of you live on&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">forever.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">As a soldier you were brave and strong but as&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">a father you will always be our hero.....</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
