Paul was born on April 28, 1945, to James P. and Alma Krog in Ft. Worth, Texas. He married Shirley Ann Graves on September 30, 1970. Paul was a certified Airframe and Powerplant mechanic with inspection authorization. He also had a private pilot's license. Paul was a man of God and an ordained minister. His greatest joy came from his family, and it was very important to him that all his family knew Jesus. Paul enjoyed having a project or hobby to work on. He enjoyed working with Ham Radios; his call sign was KRSOG. He was always doing something around the house. He loved woodworking. He was restoring his 1967 Sunbeam Alpine. He was willing to lend a helping hand with anyone else's project. He learned by doing. Nothing was too big for him. He modeled what a husband, father, grandaddy, and man should be.

Those left to honor and cherish his memories are his wife, Shirley A. Krog; brother, Tim Krog and wife, Linda; sister, Nancy Larmon; son, James Krog and wife, Karen; daughter, Tammy Boyd; daughter, Debbie Krog; 17 grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren.
