Paul was born on June 7, 1948 in Perham to Louis and Barbara (Bucholz) Kunza. He graduated from Perham High School in 1966 and attended Detroit Lakes Tech for Architecture. After his college years, Paul returned to the family farm and farmed until 1999. He worked a short time at Barrel O' Fun until his retirement in 2011 when he moved to Erhard. Paul enjoyed camping, fishing, riding on the pontoon, trips to the casino, driving around looking at crops even after retirement, trips on the golf cart, taking care of his "crops," his massive garden and doing whatever he could on his New Holland tractor.
Paul was a people person who always enjoyed visiting with friends and family. He also enjoyed spending time with his four grandsons whenever he could. Paul will be remembered for his gentle kindness, his joking ways with his grandchildren and his ability to talk to anyone regardless of their age.
