Jerry Alfred Paulson

January 1, 1957 — June 18, 2021

the Jerry Alfred Paulson passed away on June 18, 2021, in Abilene, Texas. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lori Dillard Machen Paulson; sons Justin Paulson (Sarah) of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Tyler Paulson of Abilene. He had 4 precious grandchildren he completely adored: Nola, Jude, Parker and James.

He was preceded in death by his father, Alfred Herbert Paulson & his mother, Margaret Lucille Wolf Paulson, as well as grandparents, Jerry and Ola Wolf of Lampasas and great aunt Nell Wolf and Al Paulson of San Francisco, CA

Jerry was a graduate of Lampasas High School (1976) & a proud A & M graduate of 1980.

Jerry was a loving husband & father. He was a Right-of-Way agent for WTU/AEP for 30 years.  He enjoyed coaching his son’s sports activities and helped start Wylie Little League. He loved playing golf, watching sports, hunting, fishing & spending time with family & friends. He never missed a school or sports activity his boys were involved in. He was a kind and loving man with a great sense of humor and was loved by so many.

4. His favorite number was 4 because back in high school he and Lori would talk on the phone and of course it was a landline in the kitchen at his grandparents house where everyone could hear so when they wanted to say I love you in front of family members they would just say “4” which to them meant I love you forever! So after that every card or note they gave to one another always had a “4” on it and sometimes they might even just leave a note with just a 4 on it.

A visitation will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, at The Hamil Family Funeral Home, 6449 Buffalo Gap Road.  A graveside service will be conducted at the Nix Cemetery in Lampasas County, Texas on Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. with Bob Benham, officiating.
