Paul Marvin  Neth

Rev. Ron Shifley
Paul Marvin Neth was born on Thursday, December 9, 1965 to Marvin and Lois (Blaufuss) Neth at Tyndall, South Dakota. Paul graduated from Scotland High School in 1984 and was active at Scotland United Church of Christ and in 4H. He graduated from SDSU in 1988 with degrees in Engineering Physics and Computer Science. Paul married Laura Buckwalter on June 23, 1989. They moved from Sioux Falls to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1990.  In 1992, they moved to the Denver, Colorado area, living for seven years in Aurora, Colorado. In 2000, they moved from Aurora to Eagan, Minnesota where Paul worked for NACR (North American Communications Resource) and Univita, where he was a Database Administrator. He left there in August of 2010 due to his disability. He was active in the Huntington's Disease Society of America's local chapter and support group and assisted in the planning of the Huntington's Disease Society of America's (HDSA) national convention in Bloomington, Minnesota in 2011. He was an avid golfer and woodworker. Paul was a lifelong fan of the Denver Broncos and was especially happy to live in Colorado when the Broncos won back-to-back Superbowls. Paul passed away on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at his residence in Minneapolis at the age of 46 years, 6 months and 26 days.
Paul is survived by his son, Michael Paul Neth of Eagan, Minnesota; his mother and stepfather, Lois (Gerard) Hehn of Sioux Falls; sister Janelle (Wayne) Hesman of Doniphan, Nebraska;  sister-in-law, Kim Neth of Scotland; three nieces: Jenna Neth of Watertown, and Megan and Kaitlyn Hesman of Doniphan, Nebraska; and his former wife, Laura Neth of Eagan, Minnesota.
He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin Neth, and his brother, Richard Neth.

I met Paul through the Huntington's Disease Support Group in Richfield, MN and was impressed with his constant optimism. Paul meant alot to the group, and he will be greatly missed. Paul was not a person that sat around waiting for his destiny. He was active in the HD events and put alot of effort into trying to make a difference. Our sympathy goes out to his family. Paul's passing is another rallying moment for all of his friends to renew their commitment to support the effort to find a cure for HD! This horrendous disease just claimed another life way to early!

Just this past weekend I was going through boxes in my basement and found my 4-H Annual Reports and came across a picture of Paul and Allen Kloucek. We had alot of fun in our 4-H days. My sympathy goes out to the Neth family.

Dear Neth Family- I was so saddened to hear the news of Paul's death. I met Paul at SDSU our freshman year in Pierson Hall. He was a dear friend with a kind spirit and wonderful sense of humor. Even though we had lost touch after college I am grateful for the many memories I will always have of him. Thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Cathy Culey Glynn

You are in our thoughts and prayers. As a mother and wife, Lois, you have watched earthly life slowly slip away from three loved ones. But your faith helps you know all are with Our Heavenly Father and they suffer no more. In the lonely days ahead, may God shower you abundantly with whatever you and Gerard need to get through this time in your life.

Lois, Janelle, and all of Paul's family; I am so sorry to hear about Paul, our class was small enough to be close but have lost touch over the years. I am sure we all remember his nickname, we had alot of fun in high school, on test days Paul was a good one to sit by - very smart guy. So sorry for your whole family I am sure he will be missed. God Bless, Margo
