Paul Wesley Warehime, 91, of Senecaville, died Thursday (August 12, 2021) at The Genesis Morrison House, Zanesville.
He was born April 13, 1930 in Senecaville, son of the late Cecil Warehime and Winnie (Moorehead) Warehime.
A 1949 graduate of Senecaville High School, Paul retired from Central Ohio Coal where he had worked from 1970 to 1992 driving coal haulers and end dumps. He also worked for Hall & Barber as well as Roadway Express, where he had logged more than a million safe miles.
He was a member of the Church of Christ in Quaker City and also attended the Church of Christ 10th Street & Clairmont in Cambridge.
Paul was a U.S. Air Force veteran, having served from 1950 to 1954.
He was a member of the NRA and the American Legion #0614.
He was a well-known mechanic – he once put a Diesel engine from a tractor into a Ford pick up! He owned and restored with his son, Wayne, many vintage vehicles including a 1912 and 1916 Model T, a 1931 Model A, a 1940 Ford Coupe, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, a 1962 Mack B Model, and was invited to the Ford 100th Anniversary celebration in Dearborn MI to display his 1916 Model T. His favorite engine was a Ford flathead V8.
Paul and his wife, Cora, were known for their immaculately kept property.
He was also a private pilot.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Warren, Herbert, Charles, Sam, and Merdi Davis; and his beloved dog, Jake.
He is survived by his loving wife, Cora (Ford Kenworthy) Warehime, whom he married December 30, 1958 – Paul would often say “he loved Fords so much he married one!”; two sons, Wayne (Ruth) Warehime of Senecaville and Tom (Janice) Kenworthy of Byesville; two daughters, Annette (William Shade) Warehime of Zanesville and Marlene Znidar of Columbus; a sister, Margie McKay of Idaho; two grandchildren, Doug Kenworthy and Amanda Znidar; and two great-grandchildren.
