Again Forever
On May 17th, 2019, Paul W. Stiles, age 98, left
this world to rejoin the love of his life, Mary, after over
six years apart.
Paul, one of six brothers and sisters, and his wife
of 70 years were born and raised
in Gallitzin, Pa., where he loved
working on the Pennsylvania Rail
Road. He and Mary later moved
to North East, Pa. following Paul’s
Army years in WWII, where he
served transporting troops and
supplies during the campaigns
in North Africa and Italy and on
one occasion, transporting Dwight
Eisenhower. Paul and Mary were
longtime members of Park United Methodist Church.
Paul loved his family, fishing in Canada, railroading,
building projects large and small, telling war stories,
and anything built or standing “In a nice straight
line.”
Paul is survived by his daughter Suzanne Stiles;
sons, Barry Stiles (Cindy) and Billy Stiles (Patty); three
grandchildren, Kelli Hughes (Tom), Courtney Smedick
(Brian), and Jacob Stiles; and four great-grandchildren,
Mallory and Isla Smedick, Josh Hughes and
Loren Hillard.
Funeral arrangements are being handled by the
William D. Elkin Funeral Home, 65 South Lake Street,
North East. Private interment will be held at North
East Cemetery.
The family extends its sincere thanks to the staff of
Pennsylvania Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home for the exceptional
care and comfort they provided Paul during his last years there.
