Paul was a fire fighter for Muskogee County District 1 and retired from Muskogee County District 2 after 21 years of service as a road grader. He had passions for hunting, fishing and cooking. He would find and use every opportunity to make anyone laugh, even if it was inappropriate. He had a kind, giving soul. If you went to his home for a visit, it was a sure thing that you were not going to leave empty handed. Those hands might be full of beef jerky or fishing tackle. Paul found the Lord in the last part of 2020 and the light of the Lord shined through Paul for the rest of his life.
Paul is survived his wife, Betty Jo, of the home, two sons; Phillip Sheridan and wife, Amy, of Porter, Oklahoma, and Terry Hayes and wife, Linda, of Buckhorn, Oklahoma, four daughters; Shannon Hughes and husband, Ronald, of Haskell, Oklahoma, Mary Padgett of Wagoner, Oklahoma, Denie Hayes of Webbers Falls, Oklahoma, and Donetta Mayes of Gore, Oklahoma, and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, son, Richard "Ricky" Sheridan and daughter Janie Warren.
Funeral services will be held at Friday, January 8th at 2 PM at First Baptist Church of Webbers Falls, Oklahoma with pastor Tim Harper officiating.
