Obituary for Paul Dee

Paul Dee, age 79, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 surrounded by his family at his farm in Peotone, Illinois. He was born on January 15, 1938 in Ballylongford, County Kerry, Ireland, where he found his love for animals and especially found his passion for his border canaries. He made his way to America with only $ 4.50 in his pocket.

He was a proud army veteran and a retired Local 130 plumber. He built a successful plumbing business and spent his retirement on his farm in Peotone raising cows, sheep, chickens and honey bees.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Norine (nee Knoebel); his children Susan (Michael) Bertocchi, John (Loraine), Catherine, Kerry (Jesus), Brian (Farrah), and Mary died May 1967; his grandchildren Erin (Brian) Kohl, Caitlin, Ashley (Cameron) Shearer, Ryan, Jack, Alice, Gabriel, James, Jesus, Isabel, Abraham; and great-grandchild Ayden. He was the loving youngest brother of John, Paddy, Micky, Bridget, Jimmy, Eileen, Dennis, Eddie Joe, and Mary.

Our husband, our dad, our papa, our brother, our friend. He reminded us often that he lived a good life and that we should always do what makes us happy.

May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark…
