Paul was born October 6, 1959 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Joe and Dorothy Heille. His family lived in Spring Lake Park until 1972 when they moved to North Branch. Paul graduated from Cambridge High School in 1977. After graduation, Paul moved back to Minneapolis where he met the love of his life, Terry. In 1984 they were united in marriage and moved to Sauk Centre. The couple were blessed with two children, Kimberly and Matthew. In 2000, Paul’s lifelong dream of owning a hobby farm came true.
Paul always loved kids and believed it was up to adults to teach the youth so he became the Scout Master for Matt and his friends. He was always trying to better himself. Paul started as a janitor and kept being promoted until he was finally a maintenance supervisor. He held that position at multiple large food manufacturers.
His favorite thing was spending time with family, especially his children and grandchildren; they were his pride and joy. Paul also loved hunting. He loved how peaceful it was in nature, even when it was freezing cold.
Paul leaves behind his wife of 38 years, Terry; children, Kim Roelike and Matt Heille; his two most treasured grandchildren, Emma and Noah Roelike; siblings, Barbara Byrne of Wyoming, Jo Heille of Coon Rapids, Bill Heille of Stacey, Jeri, James (Crystal) Heille of Wisconsin, Derek Heille of Mora, and twin sister, Paula Netteberg of Spring Lake Park; in-laws, Len (Judi) Rost of Fredricksburg, Texas, Rick (Bobbie) Rost of Villard, and Jeannie Ahlfors of New London; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Dorothy Heille; brother, Gary Heille; sister, Nancy Miller; in-laws, Barry Miller, Dolores Starry, and Art Rost; sister-in-law, Dorothy Taylor; and brother-in-law, Bob Taylor.
