Paul Hollingsworth Obituary

Paul Hollingsworth, a 72 year old Spickard resident, passed away at 8:07 p.m., Saturday, January 13, 2024 at Wright Memorial Hospital in Trenton.

Paul Dean Hollingsworth was born May 6, 1951, in Moberly, MO to Kenneth Lynn and Mary (Wills) Hollingsworth. He graduated from Paris High School. On May 15, 1970, he was united in marriage to Victoria Sue Jones in Parris, MO. In 1982 they moved to Trenton Mo, where he worked for Missouri Public Service (Aquila) until he retired. Paul was an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He loved to reminisce about hunting stories with others, being outdoors fishing and hunting with his children, grandchildren, and friends. He also enjoyed sports and was on many fast pitch and slow pitch ball teams. One of his greatest joys was attending his children and grandchildren’s sporting events. He was a member of the Jaycees and the Trenton Elk’s Lodge along with being an avid member and steward for the IBEW Union. His boyish smile and charm always found him among friends where he loved to tell stories and make others laugh all the time while leaving you with a little knowledge. One of his proudest accomplishments was being a father. He had always loved his children and considered himself lucky enough to have four. His children and others thought of him as an exemplar of man, and even as adults, still see him that way. He was always there for them through their ups and downs, taught them to enjoy every moment life has to offer, stand for what you believe and love with all your heart. He was truly ONE OF A KIND!

Surviving relatives include his wife Vicki of the Home, daughter Celeste Hignutt and husband Heath of Trenton Mo, sons Chance Hollingsworth and wife Melissa, Casey Hollingsworth and wife Tasha both of St. Joseph, MO, seven grandchildren: Trakor and Timberlon Hignutt, Coltyn, Connor, Caysen, Letty, and Cree Hollingsworth and a nephew Jim Hollingsworth of Vermont.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother Gary Hollingsworth , and son Blair Hollingsworth.
