Paul W. Stuk, 53, Peck

      On Dec. 1, 2013, Paul left this Earth and into the arms of his Savior and Loving Father. Paul was born April 3, 1960, to Leo and Dorothy Stuk at Tri-State Memorial Hospital in Clarkston, WA. Paul was raised in Peck with six other brothers and sisters. He graduated from Lapwai High School in 1978. After graduation, he attended college at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston.

     Paul worked on the family farm for many years before becoming a construction millwright worker. In 2002, he became employed as machine operator at Clearwater Paper in Lewiston.

     Paul married Brenda Montambo Stuk in 1982. They were blessed with their only child, a son, Travis Paul Stuk, in 1985.

     Paul enjoyed gold mining, poker, bingo, camping, fishing, road trips and was very passionate about his political beliefs. But all of these came second to the loves of his life, which were his two granddaughters, Carmen and Lilly. He cherished every minute with them.

     Paul is survived by his wife, Brenda at the family home; his son, Travis and wife Christiane and their two daughters; two sisters, Linda Meacham and Lisa Ruldolph; four brothers, Leo (Bud) Stuk, Steve Stuk, Donny Stuk, and Dave Stuk; many nieces and nephews, along with family and friends.

     He was preceded in death by his parents Leo and Dorothy Stuk; and in-laws Russell and Joan Montambo.

     At Paul's wishes, there will be no funeral service, but a memorial dinner will be held honoring Paul's life at 1 p.m. Friday at the Teweepuu Community Center, 3402 U.S. Highway 12, Orofino.
