John Howard Paul, age 69, of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee passed away on May 13, 2022 in Nashville.  

John Howard Paul was born in Nashville to the late Howard L. Paul and Hazel Cox Paul on Dec. 4, 1952. He went to school in Antioch and then attended Middle Tennessee State University. He married the love of his life Claudia Paul on Aug. 6, 1986 in Bellevue, Tennessee. For 10 years he worked as a courier for FedEx. He served in the reserves in the 101st Airborne. He was involved in Boy Scouts of America and attended Spring Meadows Church of Christ. 

John was at most, a man of God that loved God at most (if not) more than his family. His faith was one of the most important qualities to him. He liked going and spending time outdoors. He would also support his daughter and son in sporting events and extracurriculars like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. He was also a thinker and a curious person that liked knowing the unknown. With that, he had an interest in sci-fi, aliens, fantasy and in general, wanted to learn more about how things worked. He was a history lover and also loved science just as much. He loved drinking Coca-Cola and was a big snacker. He also loved dry humor like dad jokes and had such a wonderful sense of humor. 

John Paul is survived by his spouse, Claudia Paul; children, Haley Paul and Logan Paul; sister, Pam Remias and husband George. 

Funeral service will be held 11 a.m., Friday, May 20, 2022 at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Williamson Memorial Gardens. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.
