So sorry to hear this. I got to know Paul later in life, but the Kronschnabel family were fixtures in our neighborhood, living in the next block over from us on Summit. All of my siblings had a" Kronsch" in their class and mine was Peter. Paul was younger by a few yrs so I didn't know him until Dierdre introduced us. I enjoyed his company. Our sincere condolences to the entire Kronschnabel clan, and to you Deidre, and your daughters.

Bill….how sweet of you to write such a memorable message. I remember many times when you came to St Paul for “business ” and we met up at one of the local establishments. How could we forget those times!! Hope you and your family are doing well. Thanks for the memories ‼️‼️

Dear Knronschnabel Family, I was saddened to hear of Paul's passing. I was fortunate enough to meet Paul at St. Mary's college and build on a great friendship over the past 36 years. I was lucky enough to meet up with Paul every year after college until recently because of Covid. I also had the pleasure to meet his parents, siblings and immediate family. I was hoping to see Paul in the next coming months since Covid restrictions were being lifted. I have very many fond memories of Paul and always looked forward to getting together when business brought me to the Twin Cities. When we would first get together, we would reminisce about are college experiences, and there were many. As time went on, we stood up at each other's weddings, became husbands, fathers and started bragging about how great our kids are. Amelia and Tory, I met you both over your younger years and your father was the best. He was very proud of both of you and even more so as the young women you grew to become. I offer my condolences to both of you and your mother. I have great memories of Paul introducing me to his family. Having discussion in the kitchen with Betty and seeing George on front stoop with his Sunday cigar. I learned many things about Paul's family and found it interesting that they never had to have a painter come to their home. It was explained to me that if you got in trouble on Summit Ave., there was always paint, brushes and a ladder on hand which allowed plenty of time for an individual to think about whatever wrong they did. The house exterior always looked fresh! Coming from a family of four it always amazed me to see the many sibling portraits lining the stairway wall. I always wondered what it was like growing up with such a large family. I heard stories about the annual ice rink and hanging of the storm windows. There was one Kronschnabel custom that I remember most. It was my first time going to stay at Paul's house from college. We would arrive to the house late Friday afternoon, walk in with our stuff and Paul would heave his laundry basket down the stairs and Betty never got mad. On Sunday all his laundry was ironed, folded and starched, even his t-shirts! I came to realize with that many kids in the house, Betty became very efficient and could probably do that laundry blindfolded. I enjoyed meeting up with Paul's siblings at sporting events and local establishments. Paul introduced me to the only brain surgeon in the family. I bought into it up until MB could no longer keep a straight face. I got to meet many of Paul's closest friends, enjoyed the Chicago/Minnesota rivalry for baseball, football and hockey, which always made it even more memorable. I know many of his friends and family will miss his smile and soft voice. I would like to share a final thought. I heard this story at a memorial and it has to do with our friends and family who pass on. It takes three specific dates in a person's life to complete their being in our mortal world; • The day your born and you take your first breath, you're given your recorded name. • The day you take your last breath, your name is removed from the records. • The day family and friends no longer mention your name or your memory. Pauly K will be in our mortal world for a very long time. There are so many people who loved him and will speak his name and share in his memory. I'm proud to say that I am one of them. Our thoughts and prayers, Bill Holmes & Family
