I just saw Paul's obit in Rapid City Jrnl. I am Jane Olinger Patnoe, Lloyd's youngest dtr. I started out as librarian at Meadowbrook Elem. shortly aft Paul left. Tchrs there LOVED him. Clara Schmitz especially comes to mind because Paul was so helpful to her when her husband had some serious health problems. I used to get his mail because lot of it was addressed to J Olinger & secretary (Jan Feller) thought it was for me. I know he left his mark here in Rapid City. People always said what a nice man he was & I wish I could have known him better. My sincerest sympathy for your family. We will be thinking of you in days to come. Jane Patnoe, Rapid City, SD
