In Memory

Ken Paulson - Class Of 1969

Kenneth Herbert Paulson, Jr. "Kenny", aged 70, died unexpectedly from natural causes on Monday, February 21, 2022 at his home in Pataskala, Ohio. Born July 2, 1951 to Florence (Paulson) Schaefer and Kenneth H Paulson Sr. who preceded him in death. Kenny was a 1969 graduate of Whitehall Yearling High School and a 1973 Ohio State University graduate with a Bachelor's in Social Studies Education.

Kenny lived and worked in Whitehall, Ohio for most of his life. He is well known for his time at the Swim-Land Club pool, both as an employee and the proprietor. He enjoyed his many years of teaching swim lessons and coaching the sailfish swim team. Many will remember him for his infamous speedo, aviator Ray-Ban sunglasses, shrill whistle, and no-nonsense attitude. He was a loving father, and grandfather who doted on his children and grandsons until the very end. Kenny is survived by his wife, Terri Paulson (Sims); daughter, Erin J Paulson (Haar); son, Ryan C Paulson; son-in-law, Matthew R Haar; daughter-in-law, Laura E Beabout-Paulson; grandsons, Gus and Evan Haar; sisters, Donna Paulson (King), Ingrid (Ziemanski), Linda (Evans), and Kathy (Sifford). Kenny made it clear during life that having a formal funeral was not his desire. The family will be holding calling hours on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 between 4-7pm at Kauber-Fraley Funeral Home located at 289 S. Main Street, Pataskala, Ohio 43026. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Heart Association.

Kenny and I used to go to Swimland every single day during the summers as kids!! We were best friends for many years!! I was so sad to see he had passed away!! As I read what all he had accomplished in his life I knew his family had to be so proud of him. The last time I saw Kenny was many years after graduating High School. He was at the same gas station I stopped at and even after all those years we recognized each other immediately. Rest In Peace my friend and my sincere condolences to his friends and family.
