Paul was born on March 19, 1937 to William and Margaret (Trampert) Wenner in Mankato, MN. He grew up in Mankato where he attended Loyola High School. He participated in football, basketball and baseball. He attended St. Cloud State University and achieved a Life Certificate for Education. Paul married Lorraine Myhill on December 29, 1962 at Holy Rosary Church in North Mankato. Teaching was his passion. Paul taught accounting and business as well as coached baseball at Cathedral High School for over 45 years. Cathedral High School was an important part of his life. He continued to volunteer in the lunchroom until he was 80. He also worked as a barber part-time for many years. Paul and Lorraine were also part of a monthly card club group for 55 years. Paul was a member of Sacred Heart Church where he was a Lector and a Eucharistic Minister. His faith was very important to him. Paul enjoyed spending time with family and friends, reading and fishing. People loved Paul and Paul loved people. Paul left behind an amazing legacy of patience, love and faith. During his 40 years of education and coaching he has touched countless lives. We will miss his amazing sense of humor and love of life.
