Obituary for Paul A. Breed

Paul Anthony Breed was born in Detroit on November 7, 1961. His family moved north to Onaway in 1976 and Paul graduated from Onaway High School in 1979. He then enrolled at Ferris State University and graduated in 1984 with Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Paul loved Northern Michigan and so he returned to Cheboygan and began his career in banking with First of America Bank where he worked as a manager in Cheboygan, then Indian River, and finally in the St. Ignace branches. Due to an accident which resulted in paralysis in 1976, Paul was confined to a wheelchair and decided to retire from First of America. However, his business skills were requested at Manning Northern Tire where he helped set up their business office and computer systems. After again retiring, Paul was asked by his brother Joe to help at BKC Insurance Services in the employer benefits service area in which he performed admirably for many years. Paul was set to retire in the next couple of months when his sudden passing occurred on Monday July 8, 2019.

Paul was very active in the local communities and loved to help kids discover the passion for shooting and hunting that he so loved. He was active in the Cheboygan Sportsman Club, the local chapter of the NRA, Concealed Pistol License instructional classes, Hunters Safety Classes and much more. Paul was injured in a gun accident years before and always made a great impression on kids enrolled in the Hunters Safety classes, reminding them of what can happen when guns aren’t used correctly. He was very generous in his giving and will be remembered by friends and family as always willing to help out, even when his body didn’t want to. He never complained about his pain nor about the hand that life dealt him.

Paul will be sadly missed by his many friends and co-workers as well as his mom, Sandy Breed of Millersburg, his older brother, Vic, and wife Alene, sons, Sam and John of Issaquah, Washington, his brother, Joe and wife, Teresa of Cheboygan, his brother, Matt, and wife, Christine of Petoskey, their son Jake of Bend, Oregon, their son, Nick, and wife, Katelynn and children Liam and Clare, of Atlanta, MI, his brother, Pete, and wife, Jenny and their sons, Ben and Marcus of San Antonio , Texas and sister, Marie and husband, Rick of Sauk City, Wisconsin. He was adored by his nephews and doted on them. His dog, Mocha, was a big part of his life as well and Paul spent as much time as he could with her. He was preceded in death by his dad, Bill on this same date one year ago.

Paul’s family will receive friends at the Chagnon Funeral Home on Friday July 26, 2019 from 4 pm – 8 pm with a Rosary Service beginning at 7 pm. Paul’s funeral mass will be from St. Paul Catholic Church at 11:00 AM on Saturday July 27, 2019. Father Patrick Maher will officiate. Paul’s final resting place will be with his dad at St. Elizabeth Cemetery in Ocqueoc. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hunters Safety program at the Cheboygan Sportsman Club or to the NRA Defense Fund.
