Obituary for Paul David May

Paul David May, age 83, from Corydon, Indiana passed away Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at Baptist Floyd Hospital from a brain hemorrhage. He was born on December 19, 1935 in Milltown, Indiana to the late Elmer Vance May and Ruth Horner May Roggenkamp.

Paul David retired in 2000 from Geon Chemical Company as a chemical operator for 29 years. Prior to that he worked at the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant in Charlestown, Indiana, and Keller Manufacturing in Corydon, Indiana. He lived much of his life in Milltown, and was an active member of the Milltown United Methodist Church. His involvement in church included custodial work, song leader, Sunday school teacher, among other areas of ministry. He served in the Army National Guard from 1955 to 1963, attaining the rank of sergeant. Paul David met and married his wife of 56 years, Rosie Busick, in 1963.

Paul David is fondly remembered for his ready smile and infectious laugh. He loved visiting people and hearing all the local news at the post office. He never met a stranger and could converse with people he just met as easily as with those he knew his entire life. When not working, he enjoyed doing yard work, amateur woodworking, golfing, and helping his neighbors. His grandchildren were the pride of his life, and when he spoke of them, he had that well-known twinkle in his eye. Paul David will be forever remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Rosie; daughter; Marilyn Ann May Faust; brother James May; and sister Virginia Vance.

Paul David is survived by sons, Michael David May of Corydon, Indiana and Gregory Alan May (Diane) of Aberdeen, Scotland; daughter, Paula Suzanne Alexander (Kevin) of Santa Claus, Indiana; brother, Dennis May of Georgetown, Indiana; and grandchildren, Lauren Bly (Clinton), Hannah Murphy (Tristan), and Samantha May.
