Paul Pribbenow.

Son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, great grandfather. Farmer, veteran, gardener, candy maker, tinkerer. A maker before being a maker was a thing…

Born on 16 December 1916, he passed away on Friday, 27 March 2015.

He was my grandfather, and one of the coolest people I have ever known. I consider myself blessed to have known him, and I am incredibly grateful that Ian and I were able to stop and see him on the way home from Oklahoma last spring.
