Rev. Paul Mark KARGES, 69, of Rapid City, MI

With sadness and fond memories of a gentle man, we announce the death of our friend and former funeral home colleague, Paul M. Karges. We extend our sincere sympathy to his family. —The staff of Olney Funeral Home & Cremation Service

Rev. Paul Mark KARGES

Rev. Paul Mark KARGES, 69, of Rapid City, MI, died Saturday October 29, 2016 in Munson Hospice House, Traverse City, MI. 

Born July 22, 1947, in Bismarck, ND, he was the son of Willis and Edna Fern McBride Karges. 

A graduate of Vennard College, Des Moines, IA with a BA Degree in Pastoral Ministry, he was ordained in 1972 by the Missionary Church denomination. He then pastored in the New Miami Missionary Church, the Swanton Missionary Church, and the Phillipsburg Missionary Church, all located in Ohio. He went on to pastor in the Grandville Wesleyan Church in Michigan, the Peoples Church in Kalkaska, MI and the Ellisburg Union Wesleyan Church in Pennsylvania. 

At the time of his death he was pastor of the Rapid City Church of Christ. During his time in Pennsylvania, he served on the staff of Olney Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Ulysses, substitute taught special education in the school system, and thoroughly enjoyed working on Michael Risser’s farm. 

Paul enjoyed working with wood, fixing things and gardening. If he saw something that needed fixing or could be made better, he was always anxious to try his hand at it. 

Paul was a devoted, loving husband and friend to his wife Paula, who survives him. He was a wonderful father and grandfather and leaves behind two daughters, Emily (Vince) Paulus and Melissa (Matt) Lutz; seven grandchildren; two sisters, Susan Grace (Lynn) Ealing and Ruby Lynn (Brian) VanderArk; two brothers, Rev. Wayne Anthony (Kathy) Karges and Rev. Edward Lee (Claudia) Karges; along with several nieces and nephews that he loved. 

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Betty Ann Krick. 

Friends may call Friday, November 4, 2016 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Kalkaska Funeral Home, Kalkaska, MI, where Funeral Services will be held on Saturday at 11:00 AM. Burial will follow in Clearwater Township Cemetery. Memorials may be made in Paul's honor to the American Cancer Society or Munson Hospice House, 450 Brook St., Traverse City, MI 49684.
