Paul Volk

Paul Volk, 88, of St. Leon passed away on Saturday, February 6, 2021.


A true country boy at heart, Paul enjoyed farming, Brown Swiss dairy cattle and his hay business with his son, David. Even after Paul semi-retired he continued to help his son, David and grandson, Jordan, with farming chores, errands and bringing food while working in the fields. Farming was his passion.


He and his late wife, Alice, immersed themselves in that lifestyle by being involved in the Brown Swiss Association and 4-H activities. They took the opportuntity to travel to Brown Swiss conventions and 4-H fairs. Paul was the buyer and seller in their hay business, which afforded Paul and Alice more time to travel to inspect hay quality and allowed them to meet a lot of good people along the way. Paul was married to his late wife Alice for over 50 years. He was a loving husband and cared for Alice during her illness.
