Paul Allen Vold, loving husband and father of three children, passed away at the age of 66, on Sunday, March 20th, 2022.
Paul was born in Eau Claire and lived in Osseo his entire life. He excelled at sports, playing four sports through high school and becoming captain of his Football and Basketball teams. After a quick stint in college, he was back at the family business, Vold’s Implement. He worked his way up from cleaning out manure spreaders, to sales, and eventually ownership of his father’s and uncle’s business. Paul, with the help of his brothers, grew the business into multiple stores before selling it to his business partner. Paul then worked multiple sales jobs in a variety of industries until 2013 when the entrepreneur came out in him again. Paul co-founded Osseo Precision Machining. Until his illness in November 2021, he worked feverishly to grow it into a thriving business.
Paul personified the definition of a family man. After a one-year courtship of Ms. Arlene Sedahl, they were married in June 1985. Together they raised three beautiful children. Paul’s involvement and dedication to his children was unmatched. From being dubbed as the “Camera Man” at every family function and sporting event, to coaching his children at almost every level in sports. Later in life, Paul found another love… his grandchildren. Paul always said his favorite job was being a husband and father, but his new favorite word was “Grandpa”.
Paul adored his wife, Arlene. After 36 years of marriage, he still couldn’t wait to take her out dancing and socializing. Their commitment to each other has been undefinable.
Paul loved to give back to the community that he called home. He was on several committees/boards including, Osseo Commercial Club, Osseo Golf Club, Osseo Volunteer Fire Department, Osseo Evangelical Church, and the OF Booster Club. Paul also dedicated time to fund raising for causes like Festival for the Field, Lake Martha Days, The Garber Bandshell, and the Hospital.
To sum up Paul Vold in a few words on paper is impossible. He lived his life, loved his family and friends, and truly enjoyed everything life gave him. They say the measure of a man is the impact he left on those he leaves behind…. If that is true, then Paul is beyond measure.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents John and Gladys Vold, infant sister, and mother-in-law Fay Sedahl. He is survived by his wife Arlene, his children Alex, Anna (Luke Boortz), Addie (Dustin Hoffman), his brothers Jack, Wayne (Mary Lou), Brad (Renee), Les (Lisa), and grandchildren Penelope, Theo, and Max, with two more due in May. He is also survived by his siblings-in-law Roy Sedahl, Ilene and Jerry Manka, Irene and Harlan Hanson, Harvey and Sonya Sedahl.
