OBITUARY: Paul Allen McKinley

Paul Allen McKinley, 66, of Grove, Okla., passed away on Jan. 28, 2022. He was born on Oct. 22, 1955, in Wichita.

Paul was an outdoorsman at heart. He enjoyed pheasant hunting and camping, and was an avid fisherman. One of his favorite places to spend time was on the boat dock, crappie fishing. Paul was a man who enjoyed taking a hands-on approach to life.

A Celebration of Life service will be at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 26, at his son, David McKinley’s, home and farm, located at 12078 SE 80th Ave., Rago.

No graveside service on this date. Following the service, please stay for lunch, clay pigeon shoot, horseshoes and reminiscing.

In lieu of a memorial, the family asks that you take a moment to enjoy the great outdoors, just as Paul did.
