Paul passed away Tuesday, Jan 23 at his home surrounded by family.  He was born in Ann Arbor, the son of George Paul and Eloise Schrier Frisinger.  He married Kathrine (Staebler) in 1967 and she survives along with his sons Scott of Chelsea and Eric (Stacey) of Brighton; three grandchildren, Jackson, Luke and Ashley; and one brother Roger Frisinger of Albany, Oregon.  He was preceded in death by his parents, brother David, sister Sherry Lawton, and daughter-in-law Mary Berridge Frisinger.

Paul graduated from Chelsea High School and Michigan State University. He owned Frisinger Realty and was named Realtor of the year by the Ann Arbor Board of Realtors in 2003 retiring in 2008.  Working as Lima Township Zoning Administrator for 7 years.  Paul was active in his community serving as VP St Paul UCC, Saint Louis Center Citizens Advisory Board, Lima Township Planning Commission, Ann Arbor Board of Realtors, Chelsea Chamber of Commerce.  Paul was President of - Chelsea United Way, Chelsea Community Fair, Chelsea Downtown Development Authority, and the Chelsea Kiwanis Club.

Paul was a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother.  In his spare time he was a farmer and also enjoyed gardening and woodworking projects for his friends and family.  He was an avid "car guy" and was a member of the Livingston A and Spartan Horn Model A club and the NOMO Mini Club.  Paul shared his love of cars and woodworking with his grandsons - teaching them to drive around the back field and how to use power tools while still in grade school.  Ultimately, Paul would want to be remembered as a good person who was always there for his family and friends.

A memorial service will be held Saturday Feb 3 at 3:00 pm at St Paul United Church of Christ, with visitation from 2:00-3:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers memorial contributions to St. Louis Center, Arbor Hospice, or a charity of your choice. Arrangements were entrusted to Cole Funeral Chapel.

Our hearts go out to Kathy and the Frisinger family. Paul was a dear friend for over 45 years. We had some very memorable trips and special times with him and Kathy. May he rest in peace and may God hold you all in the Palm of His Hands.
