Mr. Paul W. Pavletich, 79, of Collinsville, Mississippi, died on Thursday, April 15, 2021, at his home surrounded by his family.

Paul was born on July 5, 1941 in Joliet, Illinois. He joined the Air Force shortly after his 18th birthday and served until 1963. After leaving the Air Force, he spent several years on patrol with the Detroit Police Department. Soon after, I started working as a plumber and later owned and operated Paul’s Plumbing Company in the Florida Keys as a chief plumber. He was a motorcycle enthusiast, had a motorcycle from the age of fourteen and also loved his Corvette, his Jaguar and classic cars. Loved attending and participating in auto shows in the area, Paul was the Vice President of the Meridian Corvette Association and a proud member of NRA Life. Paul enjoyed his hobbies, but Paul’s main job was to be a loving father. As a single father, he raised his four daughters alone and each of them was his greatest source of pride and achievement.

Paul is survived by his daughters, Debra Pavletich, Donna Pavletich (Alex Rowlings), Patty Tope (Raymond), and Deanna Moldenhauer (Edward); his grandchildren, Courtney, Paige, Lauren, Robert, Sara, Rocky, Tiffany, Brandon and Alyssa; and countless great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his father, William Pavletich; his mother, Josephine Henrotte; his sister, JoAnn Pavletich; a grandson, Jonathan Skinner; and a great-grandson, Brayden Janow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be shared with the Anderson Regional Cancer Center Benevolent Fund.
