Condolences for the family of “Paul D. Wernock”

Condolence from Kevin and Cheri Pain on May 4th, 2020 9:44 pm

Loved this guy. Not just our foreman but our friend for 20+ years. There will never be anyone like this guy. He was a one of a kind. Anyone who knew him well would likely agree with that. But that made him special. He had a truly great heart and above all he loved his family. His son and daughter and their children were his anchor. Loved them to the moon and back. And as for Paul…. He could fix anything. Talented. Always ready to help. Seriously amazing. Our customers loved him. He remembered everything about each customer. We just don’t know what to do without our friend. We will never replace him. He is not replaceable. He was our friend and colleague. No words yet to describe our feelings. Gonna write something later to honor him. RIP. Kevin and Cheri

I met Paul 7 years ago and I knew he was a true individual! I quickly became not only a coworker but a friend. He was a good person and a hard worker. I will miss him dearly. I hope you have found piece my friend and you will live on in my memories. R.I.P. my friend…

Paul came into our lives about 5 years ago. He was introduced to us by Kevin and Cheri Pain. From the beginning, we knew Paul was smart, witty, and dedicated to purpose-and most importantly to his family and friends. We grew to enjoy our frequent encounters with Paul and very much valued him as a trusted friend as he became a larger part of our lives here on the Outer Banks. Our lives are better for having known him. He will be greatly and sorely missed by our family. To his son and daughter- please know your Father was a good and honorable man. He took good care of us. You are and will remain in our thoughts and prayers!
Mike and Barb Benninger

I will miss his popping into the store to share a tidbit of gossip or get a handful of the butterscotch candies I keep in the candy dish just for him. You could count on Paul when you needed something done. He was a true friend.

Paul was a blessing! Mayor of Seabreeze Court, he not only cared for our homes there, he cared for us and our guest. Always ready to lend a helping hand. I grieve his loss. A truly ‘stand up’ guy.
