Condolence From: Kurt Stacy
Condolence: My deepest condolences to the family of Paul Papranec. I went to Kenowa Hills in the mid 70's and had the privilege of enjoying him and his colorful personality in several classes. Mr. Papranec went the extra mile to add humor to his lessons and picked on everybody equally just to keep classes interesting. The world has lost a good man.

Condolence From: Charles Harag Jr
Condolence: My condolences to family and friends of Paul. I did not personally know Paul. I am reasonably sure that my dad did know Paul and would want me to share condolences from our family.

If I have my family heritage correct, Paul's parents were friends of my grandparents John and Anna Harag. Both families emigrated from Slovakia around the same time.

Paul's brother Joseph and my dad were friends and used to get together from time to time.

One of Paul's nieces lives across the street from my parent's house.

Our best to all,
Charlie Harag Jr.

Condolence: I want you to know how much he has influenced my life. Sometimes it takes a while for some of the things you've learned to help you realize how much you have been affected by the things you learn to take effect. I will always remember how much he has influenced my work ethic and I want you to know he will be missed by many people and had the same influence. I'm sorry I can't be there but my thoughts and prayers are with you. RIP PAPPY.

Condolence From: Keith and Milissa Reha
Condolence: So sorry to hear of Paul passing. I would always think of him when I was writing out land rent. Him and Keith always had their farming, hunting and whatever else was on their mind talks when he would come out to the farm.
Find comfort in knowing he is resting in peace. Our thoughts and prayers

Condolence: Although I did not know Mr. Papranec, I can tell that he was a great man through knowing his daughter Robin. She spoke very fondly of her dad. He leaves a great legacy in Robin and her family.

Condolence From: Melissa Bird-Kropf
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of the loss of "Pappy". Although I never had him for a teacher I fondly remember him being a very warm and caring teacher. I don't know anyone from high school that does not have a Pappy story! He was truly appreciated by so many. Prayers to you all for healing of such a great loss.
