Paul Charles Seewald was born on December 3, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan. He was the youngest child of Shirley and the late James Seewald. Paul was raised in metro Detroit, and on April 1, 1989, he married the love of his life, Janet, at St. Suzanne Catholic Church in Detroit.

Paul and Janet settled in Livonia where Paul became an active and beloved member of the community. For the past 15 years, he has been the president of the Livonia Junior Athletic League and was a co-founder of the Michigan Youth Athletic Association. In addition to coaching his children's various sports teams, he coached many of the youth in Livonia.

His love for sports, especially football, was well known, but Paul also was a skilled craftsman who loved the outdoors. Many summers, weekends and holidays were spent with the family up north in Lewiston at the family cottage Paul and his brother built. Countless memories and stories were shared there.

To help provide for his family, Paul worked at Alpha USA in Livonia where he was an extremely proud employee for over four years. Paul enjoyed his position very, very much and was happy to have found a family with those he worked with.

Paul was the cherished husband of Janet for over 28 years and the extremely loving father of Shannon, Danielle and James, beloved son of Shirley and the late James, dear brother of Ellen (the late Ronald) Ortopan, Joanne (Frank) Camiller and James (Mabel). He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, friends and extended family members, including his dogs Finnegan, Guinness and even Chili.

Paul was a loving, caring and kind man who will be deeply missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have known him.
