Paul was born to Richard and Dorothy Schroeder on July 24, 1946, and grew up in Eagle.

Paul maintained a great circle of friends including the regulars at McDonalds for 5 a.m. breakfast. Special thanks to good friend Duane Paulson for his support.
Paul was an avid debater on any topic, a financial whiz, a skilled woodworking hobbyist. But most importantly, he was a good and generous man who will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
