Paul was born on June 28, 1951, the son of Milver and Marjorie (McCutcheon) Kohout. He graduated from Lisbon High School in 1969. Paul served in the Iowa National Guard following graduation. On February 4,1978, he married Elizabeth (Betty) Noonan. Paul was a second-generation, lifelong farmer in the Sutliff area. Typical of his era, he could fix anything with duct tape and barbed wire. Paul enjoyed researching vintage machinery, caring for the farm animals, and throwing out random bits of trivia.

Most importantly though was his love for his family and friends and being together at gatherings. Paul’s gentle smile, humble way, and presence will long be remembered by those whose lives he touched.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, James.

The family would like to thank the Mechanicsville Care Center and Care Initiatives Hospice for the love, support, and care they extended to Paul.

Memorials are suggested to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Camp Courageous, or the American Cancer Society.
