Paul Edward Wooton, age 73, Middlesboro, KY passed away Monday, July 26, 2021 at home surrounded by family.

Paul was a Veteran of the Vietnam War. He received three medals for his service to our country.

Paul loved his family, car shows, his show truck, fishing/boating, his many TV shows, relaxing in his super comfy recliner and telling imaginative tales. He had an awesome sense of humor that could cheer up anyone. His favorite pastime was sitting on his back porch enjoying the birds, outdoors, and the occasional baby possum.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Julie Wooton; his daughter, Paula Michelle Wooton, stepdaughter, Sherry (David) Campbell; sisters: Vickie (Dennis) Hamlet and Robin Howerton; brothers: Johnny (Kathy) Wooton and Michael Wooton; granddaughters: Danielle (Bryan) Spears and Julia McNew; great grandchildren: Mason Spears, Michal Spears, Samuel Spears, Mia Spears, and Gunner Spears, along with a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
