Paul Kirschbaum, 80 years old, passed away peacefully like a candle in the wind, on Wednesday Oct. 30, 2019 at Akron General Hospital. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the late Paul and Elisabeth Kirschbaum. Most important to him in life was his wife and family. He was married to Carol for 58 years. As an independent manufacture's representative, his passion was to travel and meet customers. Many of his customers became friends. Having these friends and family was a life well lived.
