Paul Albert Wehrenberg left his earthly life behind on October 17, 2023 after a brief illness. A lifelong Oklahoman, he was born on July 14, 1944 in Bethany to Elsie (Homier) and Albert Wehrenberg. Paul grew up in Bethany, attending grade school and enjoying childhood at his Dad’s drugstore, Wehrenberg Drug. In 1962, he graduated from Bethany High School. He attended Central State University in Edmond and Lear Ziegler Computer School. His first job was at Macklanburg-Duncan in the Computer Department. He worked there for a few years before finding his career home at the Hertz Worldwide Reservation Center in OKC. Starting as a computer operator, Paul worked his way up to doing IT Computer Security. He worked there for 38 years before retiring at the age of 62.
Preceded in death by his parents, Paul is survived by his loving wife and partner of 53 years, Molly, and sons, Aaron and Casey.
A true gentleman and patriot, Paul loved God, family and his country. Paul was a strong pro-life person and enjoyed walking at abortion clinics praying the rosary. As a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church he helped Molly volunteer while both boys were living at home. Later, he decided he wanted to help at other Catholic churches. Calling himself a “roaming” Catholic, he looked for Catholic churches where he felt he could do good by volunteering both physically and financially. Paul loved going to St. Gregory’s Abbey with the Monks in Shawnee. He always looked forward to Christmas and Easter Masses.
Paul never met a stranger and he always stood up for his conservative beliefs: Marching with Glenn Beck in Washington DC as a Tea Party Member, attending weekly High Noon Club meetings, lobbying, and having his voice heard at the State Capitol. Additionally, he served on the Board of OKC TownHall, the Edmond Community Policing Board appointed by the Edmond City Council, as a member of Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs and Oklahoma City Gun Club to name a few.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at St John the Baptist Catholic Church, 900 S. Littler Ave, Edmond, OK 73034.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs at 1401 N. Lincoln Blvd. Oklahoma City, OK 73104.
