Paul R. Redkoles

(Jan 26, 1956 to Oct 12, 2010)

Farming is a difficult, time consuming occupation but Paul loved it. Hours before he had to report to his job at DuPont in Deepwater, he put time in on the farm and at the end of his shift he would return to the farm until the sun set. Farming was his passion as were his children, Paul Jr. and Amber. They were the reason for all his hard work . He had a strong desire to provide well for them. They also played together with trips to South Street for Father’s Day Dinners and to DiNardo’s for his annual birthday crab fest. Along with cousin Tom they cheered on the Eagles and went to home games where Paul Sr and Jr would practice tossing the pigskin while tail-gating.rn The biggest and prettiest bright red impatiens could be found at Paul’s Gibbstown home . He had the magic touch.rnAt the end of the day Paul could be found asleep in his recliner.rnPaul was predeceased by his Dad, Paul .rnIn addition to his beloved children, Paul Jr. (Shana), and Amber( Brian Almeida) Paul is survived by his devoted mother, Betty Lou, dear grandmother Margaret Hackard, loving sister Margie Ann, devoted Uncle Andy Redkoles and dear Aunt Anne Parazino, and many cousins.rnCome celebrate 54 active years Friday from 6 to 8PM and Saturday From 9AM at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro where the service will be at 10AM. Burial Eglington Cemetery. rnDonations to The American Lung Assoc.,1301Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Suite 800, Washington DC 20004 in memory of Paul will be appreciated.rnrnrnI wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. rnrnrn

    Honeybunches ~ you have held a special place in my heart from the first day we met and always will. Through thick & thin, we remained close friends and you were always the best listener I’ve ever had. I will never forget the gentle kiss you’d give me as you came home at dark after a 14-hour day. I will be forever thankful for you teaching me that it’s okay to say I Love You to those who matter in life. The evening before you passed on, I asked you if you could hear me and you nodded ~ I take comfort in knowing that you knew I was there in the end. rnrnI will love you always

    I met Paul when I was just a young girl and he was Gail’s totally cute and cool boyfriend who was so nice to pesty little me — and then he became an inlaw! Once an inlaw, always an inlaw! Amber and Paul, your Dad was full of humor and full of life. May the memories you have bring you comfort, and the love of so many who loved him sustain you. He will live in your hearts forever.

  6. Betty Fitzsimmons Harper

    Dear Paul and Amber – Although your dad had to leave you much too soon, his love for you will be with you always – in your hearts and in all the memories you have of him. I am sure that there was no greater love than that which he felt for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    I have not seen Paul since the day we walked out of Kingsway Regional in 1974. Nonetheless, and this is an absolutely true statement, I have thought of Paul from time to time, and not infrequently, perhaps more so than anyone else I graduated with. rnrnI remember Paul for first introducing me to the phrase, “sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.” It caused me to chuckle the first time I heard it, it makes me smile to this day, and I have recalled it often in the ensuing decades when days are stressful or challenging. Its amazing the little things that can impact another’s life. When I think of that saying, I think of Paul. rnrnI was terribly saddened to learn of your loss, and my thoughts and prayers are with you, his family and friends. I know Paul was a special personality, and I can tell by this write-up that the Paul I knew over thirty five years ago continued to touch so many in a special way in the ensuing years.rnrnAgain, all the best to you and I shall keep Paul and you in my thoughts and prayers. rnrnI was terribly

    To his family, Paul was great cowork. Back in the early 80′s we played a lot of cards on our break at work. One thing we would say to each other when we had a bad hand– was the words ” e-bee – d-bee ” It was our way of says ” not good “. I’ll aways remember him for that.rnJohn Kerper

    Paul, Amber & Family – nI’m really sorry to hear this news, and I only wish I could be there to pay my respects in person to a man whom I’ve spent my entire life respecting. Big Paul was obviously a big part of my life growing up, and his memory and all the great memories I’ve shared with him on Betty Rose will always stay with me. When I was a kid, I remember thinking how much I’d like to be like Big Paul when I was one day a father myself. Now that my son is here, I can only hope he’ll be fortunate enough to have a neighbor and friend like him to look up to. nMy most sincere condolences, nDougn
