Paul Rothschadl

April 13, 1964-April 30, 2012

The joy of his family's heart, Paul Martin Rothschadl, son of James N. and Elizabeth Rothschadl of Waubun, passed away in Philadelphia, Pa., on Monday, April 30, 2012, at the age of 48.

Paul was the youngest of nine children, born April 13, 1964, and grew up on the family farm near Waubun, where he helped with chores, loved going on long walks, and was an avid reader.

He attended Bemidji State University and the University of Minnesota, earning a B.A. degree in psychology. Drawn to jobs that involved helping others, Paul worked many years in homes for the emotionally and physically disabled. He went on to management positions at the Veterans Administration (VA) clinic in Minneapolis and the VA hospital in Philadelphia.

Paul was dearly loved for his good nature, insightful observations and sense of humor. His easy laugh was contagious and naturally drew people to him. He will be profoundly missed.

Surviving Paul are his eight siblings, Jeanette (Ted) Hanwick of Minnetonka, Minn., Barbara of Minneapolis, Mary (Bill) Leff of Detroit Lakes, Betty (Charles) Prussia of Callaway, James M. of Grand Forks, N.D., Judy of Ogema, Mark of Waubun and David of Minneapolis. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

His parents preceded him in death.

Interment will be at the Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery, Ogema.
