VanCour as well as numerous Maroun and Schulz cousins of which he cherished. Paul was predeceased by his mother-in-law, Joyce Sweeney Monnat VanCour and his father-in-law, Franklyn C. Monnat.
He was born on July 4, 1956, in Lowville, NY, a son of the late Vernon and Yasmin “Dickie” Maroun Schulz . Paul attended St. Peter's Catholic School and was a diligent worker from an early age. He was proud to be a paperboy for the Watertown Daily Times, a job he took great pride in as it enabled him to buy his first snowmobile. He graduated from Lowville Academy in the Class of 1974, after having attended Glenfield B.O.C.E.S. during his high school years.
Paul's professional journey began at Payne Jones, where he worked until a motocross bike accident resulted in a spinal cord injury. This setback did not deter him. Instead, he transitioned to Climax Manufacturing, where he excelled in the Art Department, designing boxes using a CAD System in later years. His creativity and talent contributed to Climax winning several Clio Awards. Paul then worked for Yancey's Sales & Service for many years until his health declined.
A pivotal moment in Paul's life was his first date with his future bride, Sheri L. Monnat, on August 31, 1985. The couple first married on November 2, 1989, in the Town of Croghan Town Hall, officiated by family friend Town Justice Blair Sandri. They celebrated their union again on June 9, 1990, at Beaver Falls United Methodist Church with Rev. Mario Gazzilli and Richard Winters, uncle and Deacon, officiating.
Paul was a man of many interests. A member of the Brown Creek Hunting Club in Harrisville, NY, he later moved to Watson, where he built his own home in its entirety. He was also a member of the Beaver River Fish & Game Club and shot trap at the Glen-Greig Fish & Game Club on a weekly basis. Paul had a deep love for snowmobiles, ATV's, small engine motors, guns, and ammo. His hobbies extended to technology as an amateur radio operator and a computer enthusiast, even administrating the "You know you are from Lewis County if…" forum. He was an avid hunter and won several shooting awards.
In remembering Paul, we celebrate a man whose resilience, creativity, and love for his family and community left an indelible mark. His legacy will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
