He enjoyed to travel, loved lying on the beach, people watching and shopping. His favorite holiday was Halloween and had great joy setting up his decorations to scare everyone. He also enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting and BBQing. Music was also a big part of his life, he played the piano and the guitar. Paul wrote his own songs and played without sheet music. As Paul would say with his grandma Arlene, “Here’s to it and add to it, if you don’t get to it, to do it, you won’t get to it, to do it again.” Paul is survived by his wife Diane; daughters, Elizabeth and Kristina; parents, Richard Shoemaker and Melody Cooper; brothers, Eddie Berry, Brett Berry and Kyle Schroeder; sisters Tracy Shoemaker, Mary Perry and Melissa De la Pena; grandparent Alger Cooper.
