Paul Edward Gausman
April 14, 1928 - July 10, 2018
Born April 14, 1928, in Batesville, Indiana, he was the son of Henry and Martha (nee: Weber) Gausman.
Paul found his niche in construction and later started his own company, Batesville Masonry.
The 1945 Batesville High School graduate was a lifetime member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Crossroads. The proud U.S. Army veteran served during the Korean War.
He married Janet Kremp on October 16, 1954, and she preceded him in death in 1989. Together they had six children, Pauletta (Tom) Meyer, April (Jeff) Evans, Judy (Tim) Gausman, Scott (Lisa) Gausman, Andy (Casey) Gausman and Tony (Lisa) Gausman; 13 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. One grandchild, Nathaniel Meyer, preceded him in death.
He married Marilyn Gibson on September 15, 1990, and she survives along with her children, Michael Gibson, Philip Gibson, Melody Briner and six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
He is also survived by two sisters, Edith Masheck and Stella Long, along with many nieces and nephews.
Paul grew up on a farm and loved being outdoors. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his kids and grandkids. He liked doing woodworking and in his later years was well known for whittling many canes. Paul belonged to the Woodland Association and was awarded the Indiana Forestry Award for the large oak trees he nurtured around his home. He was an avid reader of history and card player, participating in his card club for over 27 years. Most of all, Paul enjoyed being with family and spending time at home.
