Paul Douglas Fournier
Paul Douglas Fournier, a longtime Wimberley resident, died June 14, 2019, at his home after a long illness. He was 84.
Originally from Connecticut, Paul and his wife Anita Savino Fournier moved to Wimberley in 2000. Paul was born in Ellington, CT., grew up on a farm, and worked in the tool and dye industry. In Wimberley, Paul enjoyed his years at King Feed and Hardware as head of the Paint Department.
Paul loved to fish in Long Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico.
Besides Anita, his wife of 35 years, Paul is survived by his five children: David (Chris) Fournier, Lawrence (Yvette) Fournier, Donna (Jeff) LaFleur, Deborah (Charles) Perkins, and Glenn (Llona) Fournier. He is also survived by his sister, Eunice Oliveri, and over 20 grandchildren.
The family wants to thank King Feed for how compassionately they treated Paul as an employee, especially during his illness.
“They went above and beyond,” Anita said, describing all the ways the people at King Feed took care of Paul. “They treated Paul as part of their King Feed family and their kindness to me has been over the top. They kept Paul on board throughout his illness.”
Paul worked up until the week before he died.
Thanks are also extended to many others who helped care for Paul, including Kindred Hospice of San Marcos, his doctors and other care givers and friends.
A celebration of life for Paul will take place Saturday, July 20, in the Blanco Room of the Wimberley Community Center, 14068 Ranch Road 12, Wimberley, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. A reception will follow in the Art Gallery next to the Blanco Room.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Heart Hospital of Austin.
