Paul Leo Priemer

Paul L. Priemer, 76 years old of St. Clair Shores, Michigan, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. Paul was born in Detroit, Michigan on October 16, 1943 to Leo A. And Cecilia M. Priemer who preceded him in death. He is survived by the love of his life, Nadine Kijek, his four siblings, Marianne Ballor(the late Robert) of Port Huron, Leo J. Priemer(Sharon) of South Bend, Indiana, Carl P. Priemer of Hastings, Michigan, Marie Wirtz(Bernie), of Almont, Michigan and his nieces and nephews, Michelle, Karen, Nicole, Leo, Kristopher, Sara, Curt, and James.

Paul served his country in the United States Army, and spent one year in Viet Nam. After 25 years as a patrolman and a mounted policeman, he enjoyed his retirement with his Ford Mustangs, the music of Johnny Cash, and Laurel and Hardy memorabilia.

Private services are being held at Chas. Verheyden Funeral Home with burial to follow at Sacred Heart Cemetery.

CandleGenerosity comes in many different forms. We will always remember Paul for his generous spirit by the way he showed his care and concern for those whom he loved, for his service to his country (U.S. Army) and the Detroit Police Department (Mounted Division), for giving help without being asked, for his ability to make us laugh, and for his stories of times gone by when life seemed less complicated and carefree.

Godspeed, Paul. You will always be in our hearts. We hope they have Mustangs in heaven.

VFW BRUCE POST SCS. We extend our condolences for your loss of a loved one. We do our best to provide a proper Military Funeral for our fellow Veterans.
We are an all volunteer team and ask for at least a Twenty-Four Hour notification for a ceremony. I did try to muster enough members to do a proper ceremony. On such short notice it just wasn't possible.
With proper notice we can do a Memorial Ceremony just about any where. with no cost or fee.

One of my best friends in my career at Mounted. One thing that many people did not know was that he served in Vietnam during the Tet offensive, and I admired him for that. You always knew when Paul was in the barn because even after a hard day on the street he kept us laughing. We had a word that we made up for Paul, "jockularity" because we were always laughing when he was in the barn, playing practical jokes on each other. On the street he was a dedicated Police Officer. I will miss you my Brother, and long live Rock and Roll.
