Paul Holbrook

Brock Paulk, Paul's nephew, and Bill Whittington, Paul's brother-in-law, will officiate the service.

Paul died Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015, in Houston, at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Hospital.

He was born March 11, 1945, in Blount County, AL, to John Wesley and Cora Bell Otwell Holbrook.

Paul married Floris Whittington in Houston, on Nov. 19, 1988. They shared almost 27 years of their lives together.

He spent his working career in sales and marketing. He was also a jack of all trades because he could do anything he set his mind to do. He also worked for many years helping his father in construction and even seemed to become a contractor himself by loving the art of woodworking...he even built two of their homes. He loved to garden and work in their yard. Paul very much loved to go bass fishing. He was also a BIG FAN of Auburn University War Eagles too!

Paul was a Christian who loved his family very much.
