Paul, 83, went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, Nov. 27, at Cullman Long Term Care and Rehab Center. He was born March 27, 1929, in Birmingham, Ala., to Joseph David and Mary Margaret Bensco Presto.
He was an active member of St. Andrews United Methodist Church, the Seekers Sunday School class, North Alabama Emmaus Community, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, and in his retirement years, a cattle farmer.
Most of Paul’s professional career was spent as a commercial building superintendent. Paul oversaw projects scattered throughout the Southeastern United States, these ranged from churches and schools to buildings involving national security. These buildings stand as a testament to the hard work and dedication to the field he loved. He displayed the same characteristics in the foundation of his family; they also carried over into his retirement life, as he oversaw numerous building projects at St. Andrews. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to all.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents; a son, David; and his brothers, Robert and Larry.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jo Noneaker Presto; daughters, Patti (Michael) Wray of Logan and Mary Grace (Joe Don) Castleberry of Bowie, Md.; sons, Phillip (Karen), Patrick (Teresa), and Dale (Rita), all of Cullman; sisters, Ethel Lowery of Birmingham and Anna Gallops of Austin, Texas; grandchildren, Christy Reach, Michael (Pam) Wray, Greg (Shayla) Wray, Jammie Johnson, Jennifer (Dustin) Barnett, Nathan Necklaus, Brandon Necklaus, Joshua Presto, Christopher Presto, Johnathon Presto, Peyton Presto, and Dawson Presto; and 15 great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorials to the Alabama Kidney Foundation, P.O. Box 12505, Birmingham, AL 35202; or to the Elevator Fund at St. Andrews United Methodist Church of Cullman.
