"Pt" was one of a kind and if you asked him he would tell you. He owned and raced sprint cars around the Midwest in the 60's, 70's and 80's. He owned and operated Tobias Automotive for several years in Elsberry. Paul was an over the road truck driver for over 30 years and over 2 million miles. He was known for his "stories" and telling a good, although sometimes inappropriate joke. If he loved you, you knew it, if he didn't, you knew it as well. Paul will be missed by all that knew him. A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021 from 10:00 am until a celebration of life service at 11:00 am at Star Hope Baptist Church, 1953 MO-79 Elsberry.
