Paul H. Koors

March 6, 1924 — January 6, 2017

Paul H. Koors, 92 of Indianapolis and formerly of Tipton died at 2:35 a.m. on Friday, January 6, 2017 at home. He was born in Tipton on March 6, 1924 to John & Florence (Gall) Koors. Paul graduated from Tipton High School in 1942 and was a member of the Knights of Columbus in Tipton.

Paul had a contagious smile that would light up a room. He used his charm to steal the heart of Mary Joan Hellmann, his bride of 66 years, whom he married June 3, 1950. Their love grew to include six children, John Koors and wife Mary, Racine, Wisconsin, Kevin Koors and wife Mary, Lafayette, Steve Koors and wife Joy, Lizton, Mary Rice and husband Mike, Indianapolis, Maria King and husband Jeff, LaGrange, Jane Watson and husband Kevin, Indianapolis; 23 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Paul has two sisters, Rosina Vawter, Lafayette and Doris Owings, Burbank, California; a brother, Carl Koors and wife Ina Mae, Sheridan along with two sisters-in-law, Georgia Koors, Tipton and Rosie Koors, Marion. He was preceded in death by three brothers, Leo Koors, Frank Koors, and Donald “Duck” Koors.

Paul was passionate about farming and never missed an opportunity to utilize his engineering intellect to modify and improve his equipment. His work ethic was an inspiration to those who knew him. He retired from farming in 1990, leaving more time and energy for bowling, playing pool, and euchre. He was a man of great faith and was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Tipton until he moved to LaGrange, Indiana in 2010 and joined St. Joseph Catholic Church, LaGrange.

A funeral mass for Paul will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, January 9 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Elwood with Revs. Martin Day, David Hellmann, and Keith Hosey presiding. Burial will follow in St. John’s Cemetery, Tipton. Visitation will be from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. Sunday at Young-Nichols Funeral Home, Tipton where a short prayer service will be conducted at 2:00 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to Knights of Columbus, 222 S. Independence Street, Tipton, Indiana 46072.
