I am very saddened by the news of Paul's passing.  He was one of the "Alma" bunch.  There was Paul, Jim Whitbread, Richard Union and myself living on Alma.  Paul and I were in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts together. I was the pitcher on the Club Scout softball team and Paul was my catcher.  Paul was an easy-going guy, and we were very close through Robinson Elementary and Columbus Jr. High, though a little less close buddies through Denby.  I was glad that Paul did make it to one of the Denby reunions, though it wasn't this last one. My thoughts and prayers go out to Paul's family.

I met Paul when he came to Columbus Junior High. We were in Mrs. Conrad's german class and lets just say that we were not her favorite puplis. She asked Paul one day when his mind was on anything but german, Mr. Etenhoffer," Vas ist Loss here?" [ she said this in germna] and his reply was "Anything thats not tied down!" Needles to say the class broke into laughter.  I tell that story over  and over.  Well Paul and I never get to far in that class. Paul and I were close the last 12 Years or so. He had a long hard road." Rest in peace, Paul, I love you."    Bob Pressel

I met Paul at Columbus Junior High School in February 1961. We were friends through out high school, but became closer friends after graduation. We helped each other modified our cars and Paul went with me to Detroit and Milan Dragways as I raced my 1961 Ford Starliner in various stock classes in 1965 and 1966. In early July 1967, Paul drove me down to Ft. Wayne for my induction in the Army along with Vic DeMitchell  and Herb Negendank. Two years later, I drove Paul down to Ft. Wayne for his induction into the Army in late June of 1969. Poor Paul was drafted six months after he completed his four year tool and die apprenticeship at Ziegler Tool and Die. After Paul came home from Vietnam, we went back to cars and he helped me convert my 1969 Ford Fairlane into a NHRA Super Stock Drag Car. We also bowled on the same team for several years at Lake Shore Lanes. We also loved Rock and Roll and when to many concerts together. Too many to count over the years. After I moved to Phoenix in 1981, we always remained in contact. Whenever, I was in town we would meet for lunch or dinner. The last years of his life were difficult with parkinson's due to agent orange exposure. I will always remember the wonderful times I had with my dear friend, Paul Enenhoffer.  Chris Delwiche
