Richard Paul Guthrie known as Paul age 71 went home to the Lord on May 9th 2017. Paul was born May 5th, 1946 in Cookson, OK. to William and Bess (Horn) Guthrie.
He was employed at Weyerhaeuser Corp. for many years before retiring at Greystone Estates in Hot Springs, AR. Paul enjoyed the outdoors, he loved fishing, horseback riding, racing cars, talking about antique cars, and he had an uncanny ability to fix things. He was a loving father, grandfather, and a dear friend to all. He lived life to the fullest enjoying the simple pleasures; like sitting down talking with friends and family and spending time playing with his grandkids. Paul loved traveling from his childhood home in Cookson, OK to Hot Springs, AR where he spent most of his adult life before retiring. He carried a magnetic presence with him that drew people near and dear to his company.
