Obituary

Baldwin, Paul W. passed away January 21st 2018 in Denver, CO. He was born May 1st 1932 in Toledo, Ohio to Raymond and Nellie Baldwin. His parents preceded him in death. Paul was the youngest of three children, Ellis and Sheldon. Paul is survived by his wife of sixty-six years, MaryLee, a daughter Beth Baldwin, a daughter Laura Kaster (Kerry) and a son Paul Baldwin (Robert) and two grandchildren, Alta and Kevin Kaster.
Paul was Director of Education for all Children in Residence for the Cleveland Public Schools. He served children for fifty years both in Parma and Cleveland. Paul was a devoted educator and family man. Paul was proud of his children and what they have done with their lives becoming not only successful in their careers but also caring adults.
Paul enjoyed every day. He loved the simple things in life - tickling the old ivories, searching for sand dollars on the beach of Nags Head, NC, and simply put, he loved being alive. He was a man of his word and honored his commitments. To Paul, every day was a good day.
He spoke fondly of his childhood time on the family farm in Grelton, OH. He was a graduate of Baldwin Wallace University of Berea, Ohio where he met his wife, MaryLee. Early in their marriage he was drafted in the Korean War and served in Germany during the war.
After over 80 years as Ohio residents, Paul and MaryLee moved to Denver, Colorado to be closer to their children. He spent his last year in Denver where he was able to enjoy the sun on his back, seeing the Rocky Mountains and spending time with family including his son, daughter, and grandchildren.
Paul always considered the glass half full. His motto - “Life is too short to go through it too serious.”
Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Horan & McConaty Funeral Home, 11150 E Dartmouth Avenue, Aurora, CO 80014. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to The Denver Hospice, c/o Paul Baldwin, 8299 E. Lowery Blvd. Denver, Co 80230.
