Paul J. Buchholtz

July 18, 1929 ~ September 03, 2021

Paul J. Buchholtz, 92, of Vero Beach, FL died September 3, 2021. Paul was the beloved husband of Molly Pitcher Buchholtz for 64 years and father to their four children: Michael G. Buchholtz, Kim E. Wood (Jeffrey), Mary K. Coy, and Lynne D. Fish. Paul was a grandfather to four grandsons, three granddaughters, and thirteen great grandchildren.

Paul was born July 18, 1929 to Paul J. and Mary (Willison) Buchholtz in Cumberland, MD. His brother William N. Buchholtz predeceased him. Paul was a 1947 graduate of Allegany High School in Cumberland and after serving four years in the U.S. Air Force he graduated from the University of Baltimore with a B.S. Degree in Industrial Management. He was Vice President of Operations for Madison Silos, a division of the Martin-Marietta Corporation and later the Chromaloy American Corporation. Paul was a member of the Mount Moriah Lodge 0145 F. & A.M., the Valley of Madison Scottish Rite and the Amara Shrine Temple.

Molly and Paul were married June 16, 1951 in Port Angeles, WA while Paul was serving in USAF at the time. They both had many hobbies but especially enjoyed golf and tennis.

They moved to Vero Beach in 1982 and owned a gift shop on Cardinal Drive “Initially Yours” for several years. They then moved to Sun City West, AZ and enjoyed sixteen wonderful fun years playing lots of golf and tennis and spending some summer months in Lake Tahoe. They moved back to Vero Beach in 2013 to be closer to family.

A memorial contribution may be made to your favorite charity.

A private service will be held at a later date.

Peter and I really enjoyed Paul’s company. I almost got a ride in Paul’s convertible but time ran out. We will miss seeing him at the tennis courts at vista gardens and having a chat. Our hearts go out to our dear friend Kim and her family and their many friends.
Rest In Peace my friend❤️

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
