Paul William Atherton III, of O’Fallon, MO, passed away Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at the age of 53.

Paul was a man of few words, but everyone listened to what he had to say. He was an old soul, Paul had life figured out and lived it to the fullest. As of April, Paul and Paulette celebrated 30 loving years married to each other. His Love for motorcycle was lifelong, something he shared with his father even at a young age, making his first trip to Sturgis at 3 years old. Paul loved his family and especially his children. When anyone was in need Paul was the first person to lend a hand and the first person there to help. He was protective in nature and a well-rounded person overall. He loved to watch St. Louis Blues hockey and tinker in his garage. Paul was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made in Paul's name to either Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association or Wentzville VFW Post 5327.
