Paul Roland Sleeth, 57, passed away peacefully at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019 after suffering a stroke.
Paul was born Nov. 27, 1961, in Glendive, Montana, to George and Beatrice ( Strehlow) Sleeth. The family moved from Glendive to Baker, Montana, where they lived for the first four years of Paul’s life.
In 1965, Paul and his family moved to Gillette, Wyoming, where he was a long-time resident. Paul graduated from Campbell County high school in 1980. He worked at Bighorn Water Service during high school, delivering bottled water to residents and businesses in town and really loved it. Paul prided himself in his work. He worked shortly for Tri-State Insulation and eventually became a cementer and worked many years for Specialty Concrete.
Paul enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He was good at many things, especially sports in his earlier life. He loved baseball, wrestling, football, and track and stood out in all of them. He also loved anything on wheels, starting with tricycles and bicycles and eventually graduating into cars which he had many of, including his beloved 55 Chevy, which he found in the alley and talked his father, George, into helping him restore during Paul’s high school years.
Paul always enjoyed life to the fullest. Although Paul never married or had children, he had many friends through his years in Gillette.
He is survived by his parents, George and Beatrice Sleeth; sisters Barbara J. Hammond and Cynthia R. Lesko; brother, Robert G. Sleeth; along with three nieces and one nephew.
Paul was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Hazel and Wayne Strehlow, paternal grandparents, Edna and Everette Sleeth, and many aunts and uncles.
A memorial has been established in Paul’s name and can be sent in care of Walker Funeral Home, 410 S. Medical Arts Court, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at www.walkerfuneralgillette.com.
