Paul C. Trepanier, 59, passed away July 25, 2013 unexpectedly at home. Paul was born June 16, 1954 to the late Clarence "Comp" and Carol (Portier) Trepanier. Paul married Patty Fields on March 15, 1984. He graduated from Oconto High School in 1972 with his life long and two best friends Tom Belongia and Steve Brazeau. Paul was employed at Trepanier Mini Mart from 1980-2003 where he touched many lives with his quick wit and sense of humor, which was more valuable than the cup of coffee or tank of gas. Laughter really was his best medicine and most of Oconto has been cured by Pauly a time or two. He then proceeded to work at Newcap Inc. where he was the Food Pantry specialist. He also worked evenings bartending at Irish Green Golf Club. He served up the best Old Fashions and a great story to go with them. He was himself a "local favorite"! At his best, Paul will be missed by many. Paul was a member of Holy Trinity Parish and Knights of Columbus.

He is survived by his wife Patty, son Justin (granddaughter Addisyn), daughter Kimberly, and family dog Buddy, Oconto.
