A life-long resident of Greensburg, Paul will long be remembered with affection and admiration by all who knew him. He graduated from Greensburg High School in 1937. Throughout his career and personal life, he truly embodied the spirit of the Greatest Generation in the United States. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy during World War II on the U.S.S. Amphion (AR13) and steadfastly dedicated himself to U.S. government service with the Department of Defense for 36 years. During his tenure, he led ground-breaking reforms to the personnel system, which positively impacted thousands of military and civilian members around the world. His devotion to his faith was an inspiration to fellow members of the St. Paul Parish in Greensburg, where he served as an usher, choir member, volunteer and faithful member of the parish for many years. In addition, he served his community as a member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion Post # 981 in South Greensburg. In his spare time, Paul invested time in his passion for golf and flying, which resulted in memories of happy times shared with friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his two brothers, John Yeneral and Joseph Yenerall. He is survived by the following nieces and nephews: Linda Yeneral Porter, Thomas L. Yeneral, Joseph D. Yenerall, Bonnie Yenerall Raspet, and Paul M. Yenerall; and several great nieces and great nephews. All services were private.
