Paul Edwin Frey

December 7, 1934 — March 22, 2023


Paul Edwin Frey, of Schoolcraft, passed away March 22, 2023. He was born December 7, 1934 in Kalamazoo, Michigan to the late Romeo and Anna (Cooley) Frey.

He was a graduate of Schoolcraft High School. He married Nancy (Johncox) Frey on September 30, 1955. An avid builder, he was able to turn his passion into his own business, Paul Frey Builders, constructing many homes and various projects around the greater Kalamazoo area before settling into retirement. However, his passion for building never ceased. Whether it was something for himself or Nancy, or a close friend or family member, you could always find Paul working in his shop. In earlier years, his greatest hobby was general aviation, building and piloting many of his own biplanes, and flying throughout the Midwest.

Paul was preceded in death by his loving wife, Nancy Mary Frey; his parents; sister, Esther Brush; brothers-in-law, Daryl Brush and Gary Steeby; and sister-in-law, Sandra Frey.

He is survived by his children, Kris Frey, Jeff (Julie) Frey, and Lisa (Mike) Jarrett; 12 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and siblings: Joyce Steeby, David Frey, and Phyllis Frey.
