Greg Paul was born on September 4, 1966 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to Clifford R. and Patricia A. (Meyers) Jaehnke. He was a 1984 graduate of Dodgeland High School. Greg met JoAnne Sanders at the roller rink and were best friends for over 40 years. Greg and JoAnne were united in marriage at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Watertown on April 28, 1990. He worked in the construction business the majority of his life. Greg was well-known for his outgoing personality, imitations, story-telling, and sense of humor. Greg’s true passion was nature; he spent as much time as possible hunting and fishing and he instilled that passion in his daughter. Greg was an animal lover of sorts, especially dogs. He had a wide circle of friends that he considered all to be family. His greatest joy was his daughter and he was so proud of everything that she did.
Greg is survived by his wife, JoAnne and their daughter, Alyssa of Reeseville; mother, Trish Jaehnke of Reeseville; sister, Tara (Tom) Portman of Eau Claire; parents-in-law, J. Dave and Cathleen Sanders of Watertown; sister-in-law, Angela Sanders of Wauwatosa; nephews, Nolan and Cole Portman and Maxwell Sanders-Krejcarek; many aunts and uncles; numerous cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Cliff; grandparents; and other relatives and special friends.
