OBITUARY ~ PAUL MARTIN "BUCK" ENGLAND

Paul Martin (Buck) England, the second child of Elmer England and Leona Christie England was born August 30, 1926 at Clearfield, Iowa. He passed away on Nov. 7 at his home near Clearfield.

Upon graduation from Clearfield High School in 1944 he joined the United States Navy and served his country for two years.

He married Mary Lou Votava on August 30, 1947 in Bedford, Iowa. To this union three children were born, David Craig, Douglas Keith and Lori Lynn.

Buck loved farming and spent his life tilling the soil and caring for livestock.

Buck was an active member of his community. He served on the school board, the church board, the FmHA county committee and the REA board. He was also a Calvary Go-Getter 4-H leader for several years and was the current Grant Township trustee.

Buck was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Leona, two brothers, Leroy and Dwight and one sister, Evelyn.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Mary Lou, sons Dave and Pam, and Doug and wife Priscilla, all of Clearfield, daughter Lori Christensen and husband, Dan of Leon, sisters Maxine Round of Diagonal, Fern Pettingill and husband, John of Magalia, California and Irene Pankau and husband, Max of Grant City, Missouri; sisters-in-law Jeane England of Corning and Wilma Plants and husband Dean of Waverly, Iowa; brother-in-law Burt Haglan of Des Moines, nine grandchildren-Heather England Gaule, Craig England, Steve England, Charlie England, Wade England, Thaddeus England, Cole Christensen, Garrett Christensen and Connor Christensen; one great-grandchild, Taylor Gaule; and many nieces and nephews.

Buck was a devoted husband and loving father and grandfather. His grandchildren will remember Grandpa's candy, the caramels that could always be found in his shirt pocket. His shirt pocket also contained a folded paper towel that was used for emergencies such as cleaning up spills, wiping runny or bloody noses, or wiping off muddy or greasy little fingers.

Buck will also be remembered for his Mr. Fixit qualities-everything from bathroom carpeting to farm machinery to laundry room cabinets to grandkids' vehicles. Buck always seem happy and bounced back from life's little setbacks with a positive attitude and a smile.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, November 10, 1998 at 10:30 a.m. at the United Methodist Church at Clearfield, Iowa with the Rev. Alan Rusk officiating.

Music was provided by Patty Parrish and Kathy Nelson.

Casketbearers were Barry Haglan, Mike Sedlak, Danny Brown, James Pankau, Sandy England, Marvin Votava, and Lonnie Votava. Military graveside rites were provided by Woodside Post #97 of the American Legion of Clearfield.

Interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery at Clearfield, Iowa.

Funeral arrangements were provided by the Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home.
