Paul Masura Obituary, Member Of Calumet City VFW Post 8141 Has Died

Paul Masura Obituary, Death – With heavy hearts, we share the sad news of the passing of our dear friend, “Tall” Paul Masura. Paul’s departure leaves us with a profound sense of loss, not only for the decades of friendship we shared but also for his incredible generosity towards the Ehinger Bros VFW Post 8141. His impact on our community and VFW Post is immeasurable.

Several years ago, Paul’s lottery win presented him with a substantial sum of money. Recognizing the challenges our VFW faced at the time, grappling with the decision of whether to remain open, Paul stepped in with a remarkable donation. His generosity bridged the gap, ensuring that our VFW continued to stand as a steadfast pillar in the community, thriving to this day. We owe him an immense debt of gratitude.

Paul was more than just a generous benefactor; he was a lifelong resident of Calumet City, carrying with him a treasury of stories and memories unique to our town. He retired from Calumet City and also worked for a time at Thornton Township, where he gathered countless tales about the politics and happenings in Calumet City and the South Suburbs.

A distinctive figure, Paul’s towering stature contrasted with the tiny car he drove. His arrival was always heralded by the sight of him maneuvering his walker towards our entrance. Despite our offers to assist, he insisted on handling the door himself. We would watch with affectionate amusement as he navigated his way through the doors and walls like a pinball, eventually finding his place at the barstool. There, we shared countless laughs and stories with him and our regular patrons.

Paul was a regular presence at our VFW, spending hours playing our gambling machines. He often opted for minimum bets, savoring the simple pleasure of stretching a dollar. Whether he won or lost, his focus was on having a good time while enjoying his 3-4 MGDs, a Friday tradition we’ll fondly remember.

Details regarding any services for Paul remain unknown at this time. We will, however, keep you informed as we receive more information. Paul’s absence will be deeply felt; he was an integral part of our VFW family for many years. Rest in peace, dear friend, and may your legacy of kindness and camaraderie live on in our hearts.
