Paul Douglas Nawara

November 2, 1956 ~ December 21, 2017

Paul Douglas Nawara went home to be with the Lord on December 21, 2017 at the age of 61.   The family will receive guests beginning at 1:00 pm and a celebration of his life will be at 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at LifeBridge Baptist Church, 2709 Kingsdale Drive, Deer Park, TX  77536.

Paul was born in Wharton, Texas to Alton Roy Nawara and Lois McCafferty on November 2, 1956.  He grew up in Rosenberg and Eagle Lake.  During his teenage years, he could be found racing cars and riding motorcycles with his brother and friends.   Many family gatherings involved playing board games, playing guitars and singing Country music, and hearing cherished stories, many of which involved his light-hearted mischief.  His favorite past-times were fishing, watching football, bowling, and spending time with his entire family.

Paul worked in the trucking industry for his entire adulthood.  He did everything from working on diesel engines and driving trucks (local as well as cross-country hauls) to scheduling and dispatching small fleets and invoicing.   The majority of his working years were spent working for and with John David Norsworthy and the Norsworthy family, as well as Carmen Andrade.  They shared many years of working adventures; and Paul admired and respected John.

Paul is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his partner, Kelly; children, Kimberly and husband Lane, Robyn and husband Justin, Krystle and husband Hunter, Mandy and husband Matt, Brianna and husband Tyler, Koleby and E.J.; grandchildren Lane Jr, Emma, Irene, Wyatt, Luke, Jacob, Addison, “Baby E” (arriving soon) and Ashton; siblings Donna, Weldon and wife Kim, and Mary and husband Craig; mother-in-law Joyce; sister-in-law Diana and partner Mike; 6 nieces, 1 nephew, 3 great-nieces, 3 great-nephews, numerous cousins and beloved friends.

The family invites everyone attending the services to wear a Houston Texans or #NAWARASTRONG shirt.  The family also wants to thank John David Norsworthy for his continued support, especially during the hard times.
