September 13, 1946 ~ August 29, 2021 (age 74)


Paul David Freshour, 74, of Canal Winchester, passed away Sunday, August 29, 2021.


Paul David Freshour was born on September 13th, 1946, in Columbus Ohio. Paul David loved driving a bus, which led him to driving the Circuit Rider bus for church and retiring from COTA after 25 years of faithful service. Even after retirement, he continued his bus driving journeys with the Fun Bus for several years. When he wasn’t driving, you could find him loving to fish, garden, hiking, and tinkering with his Ham Radio.


Paul David also served 6 years for the US Army National Guard as a Specialist 4 (1965 - 1971), volunteered with the Red Cross Disaster Services, and was part of the Ham Radio club. 


Even though Paul David kept busy, he always spent quality time with his family and wife of 47 years. He always wanted to ensure he was the best father he could be, and he accomplished this goal to its fullest.


Paul David had a firm belief in Jesus and God, and that guided him throughout his life. This belief carried him through the good times and the hard times, and followed him wherever he went.  He loved to travel, with some of his favorite places being Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, Yellow Stone National Park, Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Branson Missouri, and Canada.


He is preceded in death by his parents Paul and Esther Freshour.


Paul David is survived by his wife Carolyn; children Kelly (Tim) Martin and Gary (Danielle) Freshour; grandchildren Owen, Dylan and Serafine; brother Peter James (Mary Kay) Freshour; sister Lynette (Bruce) Buchser; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
