Paul Edwin Gorius of Newark, February 14, 1939 – September 2, 2018

Paul Edwin Gorius, 79, of Newark, lost his battle with cancer on Sunday, September 2, 2018 at the Selma Markowitz Hospice Center. He was born February 14, 1939 to Paul Edwin Gorius and Elizabeth (Shea) Gorius in Newark.

Paul attended St. Francis deSales School where he graduated with the class of 1957. Following high school, he was a student at the Newark Campus of The Ohio State University. It was there that Paul met his future wife, Judith Ann Hofacker. They were united in marriage on February 11, 1967 at the St. John’s United Church of Christ by Rev. Richard Hurdiss. Paul enjoyed traveling, playing Euchre, Gospel music, politics, and going to various locations across the country with Judy to show their AQHA Palomino horses. He met many wonderful friends through these shows.

There were many chapters of Paul’s life which included: years in the Army Reserves and National Guard, employment at Rockwell International, various stints in construction and carpentry- as well as the last 40 years spent working on he and Judy’s farm. It was there he loved making hay, tending to his Charolais cattle, and riding his four-wheeler with his cat, Frosty.

Preceding Paul in death were his parents; his brothers, John and Jim; and sister, Elizabeth “Sissy” Lieber.

He is survived by his loving wife, Judy; “adopted son”, Matt (Audra) Keener; his siblings, Dan Gorius, Agnes Storer and Michael (Karin) Gorius; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Everyone who knew Paul, will miss his warm smile and will fondly remember his love of nature and being outdoors on the farm.

Special thanks go out to both the staff of The James and the Selma Markowitz Hospice Center- as well as Pastor Brian Beachy- and friends, Barbara Stockdale, John Saxe and Patty Smith for all their kindness and help.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Central Ohio.
