Paul Hugo Weyrauch was born Oct. 14, 1925, in Sterling, Ill., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hugo M. Weyrauch. He died July 19, 2013, at the age of 87.

Paul is survived by his wife of 65 years, Marion Palmer Weyrauch; three daughters and sons-in-law, Beth and David Butler of San Antonio, Susan and Mike Williams of Dallas and Nancy and Peter Mehlert of Houston; four grandchildren and their spouses, Sarah and Jim Sargent, Ssgt. Paul and Landry Butler, Spencer and Amy Williams and Elizabeth and Jake Cole; and three great-grandchildren, James and Will Sargent and June Williams.

After graduation from Sterling High School, Paul entered the U.S. Navy, assigned to the V-12 officers training program and serving his country aboard the USS Bremerton. After his release from active duty, Paul attended Notre Dame, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree, and went to the University of Michigan, where he completed an Master of Business Administration.

On June 19, 1948, Paul married his childhood sweetheart, Marion Palmer. He commenced his business career in Pittsburgh at People’s First National Bank, and, then, in 1953, he joined Gulf Oil Corps.’s treasury department. Over the ensuing 30 years with Gulf, he was assistant treasurer in the Houston office and then returned to Pittsburgh, where he became treasurer of the corporation.

Upon retirement, Marion and Paul moved to the Marble Falls area, initially in the Blue Lake community on Lake LBJ and subsequently to Horseshoe Bay. Paul enjoyed a variety of business and volunteer activities during his “retirement” years. He served on the Llano school board and the University of Texas Business School Advisory Council, taught part time at the Texas State University Business School and was appointed to the State Pension Review Board by Gov. Clements for a six-year term.

A man of faith, Paul was an active member and leader in all the churches he and Marion belonged to over the years. They were charter members of The Church at Horseshoe Bay, where Paul served as a trustee.

A memorial service is 1 p.m. July 24 at The Church at Horseshoe Bay, 600 Hi Ridge in Horseshoe Bay.

The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made in Paul’s name to The Church at Horseshoe Bay, P.O. Box 8295, Horseshoe Bay, TX 78657.

We remember with joy a husband, father and grandpa who loved us well, was a man of honor, laughter, humility — a dog lover and doxology singer.
