Paul Allen Vandagriff

June 21, 1957 — June 17, 2019

Paul Allen Vandagriff died peacefully with a sister at his side on June 17, 2019 in the care of Pine Pointe Hospice, Macon. He is survived by sons William Schultek (Suzanne) and Anthony Bryant, of Forsyth; granddaughter Haley Thompson; brother Lyle Vandagriff (Kari) of New Braunfels, Texas; and sister Catherine Vandagriff of Homewood, Alabama. He is preceded in death by Mary, his wife of 35 years; his parents, Don and Rev. Deacon Mary Vandagriff; and his sister, Gladys Sprenger.

Born on June 21, 1957, in Fort Worth, Texas, Mr. Vandagriff packed a lot of life into his almost-62 years. He was an Order of the Arrow Eagle Scout, an avid scuba diver, a Han Mu Do blackbelt and Taekwondo grand champion, and winner of BBQ competitions. He loved jazz music and in his youth played trumpet with three internationally famous bands. While in the US Air Force he worked in airfield management at Patrick AFB, and the astronauts of early shuttle missions called him "Papa Victor." He was a Johnson & Wales trained culinary artist, and taught cooking skills to juveniles at a maximum-risk correctional program.

Paul was known for his wit, integrity, and unfailing kindness. He is greatly loved and sorely missed.
