Paul Jones Casebolt, 92, passed from this life on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at Magnolia Village in Bowling Green, KY. He was born on April 6, 1928 in Minford, OH to the late John and Pina Casebolt. Paul is survived by his wife of sixty-seven years, Virginia (Wilson) Casebolt of Bowling Green, daughter Patty Jo Guyer (Jay) of Bowling Green, KY; Steven Paul Casebolt (Judy) of Spring Hill, TN; John David Casebolt (Jane) of Bowling Green, KY; and James Kelly Casebolt (Phyllis) of Clarksville, TN. He had seven grandchildren and several great grandchildren.

Paul served in the armed forces in post-WWII, was a skilled carpenter and welder, and worked as an EMT for the rescue and ambulance service in Paden City, WV. However, for more than sixty-five years, Paul served as an evangelist for the Church of Christ. That journey began in Bethel, Ohio and many of those years were spent in the Ohio Valley working with several congregations on both sides of the Ohio River. His love for preaching even carried him on three separate occasions to the Philippine Islands where he had served in the military during earlier years. In recent years, he worked with the Church of Christ in Pomeroy, Ohio.

Paul enjoyed music, playing his guitar and harmonica, reading, being outdoors, and writing where he has written two minor works of poetry. Though being raised in an economically challenged time, he was always found to be generous and willing to help others in need.

There will be a private graveside service for family. Arrangements are entrusted to Jarvis-Williams Funeral Home, Paden City, WV. In lieu of flowers, any donation to the American Cancer Society or by check to the Paden City Public Library, 114 S 4th Ave., Paden City, WV 26159 would be most appreciated.

I want to send my condolences to all of his family. It is with fond memories and appreciation to have been acquainted with Paul Casebolt. I can still hear his voice and see him clearly as he preached at Paden City. He held meetings more than once in Columbus, but my recollections from WV are more vivid. I can still feel his smile and maybe a sneaky grin. I watched him detail his outlines on chalkboards in colors like artwork that could compete with todays powerpoint presentations. I remember how he left his own poetry at the hospital in Pittsburgh for the encouragement of any in the waiting rooms. He spent much time as a comforter.

I will always be thankful for the way he loved my brother David more than a son-in law... like a son. He was David's mentor and encourager.

Paul was a warrior for Truth in the Church. He fought liberalism throughout the Ohio Valley. Men like him are a dying breed. I'm thankful for all his work. He can finally rest and wait for his reward. He shall be sadly missed. Our heartfelt sympathy to all his family.

Sending thoughts and love to Aunt Ginnie and the family. It has been years since I have seen you all but have such fond memories of our family reunions and the gatherings filled with music, stories and love. I have read Uncle Paul's writings many times and loved his stories of the old home place. He and daddy look so much alike and have so many of the same mannerisms and attitudes! I always admired Aunt GInnie's patience and love for her family. We all are well aware of the Casebolt stubbornness and determination and she always persevered! Praying for all of you as you travel this road of life. Sending love too,

Vicki Casebolt Sussman (Kenas's daughter)

Vicki, Thanks so much for the kind thoughts and true depiction of the Casebolt traits! Mom always figured out a way around the challenges. Dad's descriptions of home and some of the amusing stories made for great moments of laughter though we know times were not easy for them growing up. Thank-you for thinking of us during this time. We hope you are well and safe. Be blessed. Jim

Thanks for reaching out to us Vicki. My dad, your dad, and Uncle Fon were definitely brothers!!

Vicki, Thanks for the comments. When we lived in Cullman, AL your father stopped to when he was driving through. Dad and Mom were living with us at the time. The stories -- had to be true -- you can't make up that kind of stuff. Wondered how they survived childhood .... they just laughed.

I was so sorry to learn that Paul had passed. I have so many memories of him and Ginny. He was an excellent example of a child of God. I loved to hear him preach and he made it plain. I remember going with my parents and Bud and Bonnie around the area when Paul was holding a meeting. It wasn't unusual for us to travel an hour or more to get there. Paul held a meeting for the Church in Worthington OH where I was living during the late 70's and I was able to visit with him at the home of one of the members. Had seen them from time to time over the years, the last time being at Ginny's sister Bonnie's funeral in Weirton. I always had great respect for both of them. I am a little older than Patty, Steve, John and Jim but remember them also. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Hold on to all your memories as you move through the days ahead.

In Christian Love,
Linda (Snider) Stansberry

Thank-you Linda. The Barths, Sniders, and Pryors could always be counted on to support gospel meeting work. John

Thanks Mary! Talk about a blast from the past! I still remember the Marrtown days, especially the singing! And always loved the time spent "out on the ridge"!
