Paul Stein

GERMANTOWN HILLS—Paul Daniel Stein, 41, of Germantown Hills, formerly of Chillicothe, found eternal peace on Friday, Jan. 20, 2023.
Born April 27, 1981, Paul Daniel was the son of Mark Stein and Diane Perkins. He was an idea guy with clear focus on his professional goals. Paul worked tirelessly to earn supervisory and managerial jobs throughout his long tenures with Mediacom and most recently Sherman’s. He won the respect of all who worked with him and made many friends during his life. Paul had many shared interests with friends and was an avid concert goer who was committed to every mosh pit he could find. He will be forever remembered for his sense of humor, humongous heart, and willingness to help friends. To know Paul was to love Paul.
He is survived by his sweetheart, Lauren, married in 2017, and their daughter, Ava, born in 2019; his parents, Mark (Nancy) Stein and Diane (Dave) Perkins; his sister, Gretchen (Brandon) Williams and step-siblings: Erin (Chris) Rebholz and Carl Whitecotton; nieces and nephews: Taylor, Logan, Spencer, Gabrielle, Wyatt, Haylee, Haven, Skyla and Aeris; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Paul was preceded in death by his grandparents: Harry and Carolyn Stein and Homer Jr. and Jean Smith.
