Paul E. Rueff, 86, of Marengo passed away September 23, 2017.
He was born May 16, 1931 in Tower Hill in Shelby County, IL to Ezra and Bessie (Blades) Rueff. Paul proudly served in the U.S. Army. While he was stationed in Germany he met his sweetheart, Margot, who he brought back to the States and they were married on May 7, 1955 in Crystal Lake.
Paul worked as an artificial inseminator. He was a family man and worked hard to provide for them. Paul had an easy-going demeanor and took pride in anything he did. His dedication to his country through his military service was on display when he was able to take part in an Honor Flight. That experience was one of the best in his life.
He is survived by his four children, Dale (Kim), Michael, Kenneth (Susan), and Diane (Scott) Gerner; his grandchildren, Jason, Jessica, Kyle, Emily and Alex; his great-grandson, Maddux; and his brothers, Frank (Brenda) Rueff and Robert (Gladys) Rueff.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Margot, and his siblings, Kenneth, Mary, Reba, and John.
