"Only a few individuals possess the ability to fulfill all the needs of their many loved ones without hesitation and with a smile." - Charles Edward "Tripp" Krumm III
Paul Yarborough, 51, of Columbus, passed away October 8, 2021 surrounded by his wife and children.
Paul was born August 5, 1970 in Morris, IL to Donald and Evelyn (Gates) Yarborough.
Paul will be deeply missed by his wife Pamela (Kilgore) of 22 years; his children Tiffany (Matt) Waite, Joshua (Fei) Yarborough, Courtney Yarborough, Andrew Yarborough, Alexander Yarborough, Ashley Yarborough, with an added bonus child, Tripp Krumm; his grandchildren Memphis Staker, Nora Waite, Greyson Waite; his parents Donald (Jackie) Yarborough, Evelyn Yarborough; his sisters Tammy (Frank) Collier, Andrea (Vernon) Bell, Amy Dawn (Dennis) Kropp, Bethany (Nate) Ingalls, Kimberly (Ryan) Alsheimer; sister-in-law Donna (Steven) Gieseck; nieces and nephews Samantha (John) Purdum, Chloe Collier, Quinton Yarborough, Ciearra Bell, Zachary Bell, Caleb Kropp, Ethan Kropp, Julia Kropp, Connor Ingalls, Jude Alsheimer, Michael (Ashley) Winner, Amber Winner.
The mutual love and admiration Paul shared with his seven children, three grandchildren, and his wife of twenty-two years, Pam, was something to be envied.
He will be remembered for his unmatched love for his children, his incredible skills playing pool, his witty intelligence, his never-ending get rich ideas, his knack for storytelling, his infectious laughter, and his strategic and problem-solving mind. Some of his favorite things to do (especially with his family) were play pool, video games, card games, and disc golf. He loved to travel, play pranks on family and friends, and, arguably his favorite thing of all, was to spoil his adorable dog Hershey. Gathering with his family on New Year's Eve was his perfect combination of light-hearted neighborhood pranks and living in the moment. He loved ringing in the new year with a good family hoot and holler and banging pots and pans.
Day and night, Paul showed his family the meaning of dedication and hard work while he ran the brokerage for Midwest Express Freight Solutions. His shoes will be hard to fill as he did the jobs of many.
Visitation will be Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 5pm to 8pm at Newcomer NW Chapel, 10051 Brewster Ln. Powell, OH. Funeral services will be held Friday, October 15, 2021 at 11am at the funeral home. There will be no graveside service as Paul expressed his wishes to be cremated and spread in his favorite vacation place, Hawaii.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you bring a letter telling them how you know Paul, and any memories or stories you have to share.
