Memorial For Paul Wilke

OHSSAR President in 2006, Central District VPG 2010, Hub Scott Laureate, a NSSAR Minute Man and NSSAR Color Guardsman of the Year in 2017

Compatriots,

One of my saddest duties as State President is to make announcements such as this.  Undoubtedly, many of you have already heard, but it is with great sadness that I must announce the passing of Paul M. Wilke.  Paul served as the Ohio Society President in 2006, Central District VPG 2010, was a Hub Scott Laureate, a NSSAR Minute Man and the NSSAR Color Guardsman of the Year in 2017. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Valerie and the Wilke family at this difficult time.

Chapter Presidents, please share this information with your membership as you deem appropriate.
