Paul Leo Sticka

February 25, 1944 — April 26, 2024

St. Paul, MN

"An Honorable Man"

Paul passed away peacefully at Regions Hospital on April 26, 2024 from complications of cancer.

He is survived by Margaret, his wife of 34 years; brothers and sisters, Vernon Sticka (Rancho Bernardo, CA), Judith Duvall (Fargo, ND), Terrance & Cheryl Sticka (Spokane, WA) and Ruth Kain (Maple Valley, WA); sisters-in law & brothers in law, Phyllis & Richard Hughes, Mary & Loren Cybyske, Nancy & Rollie Martin, Kathy Amert, John Wagner, Joe & Amy Wagner, Michael & Marsha Wagner, Peter & Jonmarie Wagner and many cousins, nieces & nephews,

Paul was preceded in death by his daughter, Kelsey Sticka; father & mother, Leo & Rosalia (Roeder) Sticka; sisters, Charlotte Zielie, Ann Froehlich; and brother, Herman Joseph.

Paul was a proud son of the prairie; born in Schefield (Dickinson), ND and moved to the Twin Cities in 1974. It was in the Twin Cities where he met his bride Margaret. Paul was employed at Midwest Motor Express, and in later years as a refectory attendant at Como Park Golf Course.

Paul enjoyed nothing more than engaging with people. If you met him, he could remember your face, your name and the circumstances of your meeting. He was truly interested in conversations with you. Family and friends were important to Paul, and maintaining those friendships and family ties were a regular activity of his life.

Paul enjoyed playing golf, the PGA golf, Minnesota Golden Gopher basketball and football, the Minnesota Twins, and America's Team-the Green Bay Packers. However, even if a Saturday afternoon pool party was in progress, he would pack up Margaret to return home to watch reruns of the Lawrence Welk Show-another son of the prairie. Paul could dance a mean polka, tell engaging tales, pour a stiff cocktail, regularly visit the Ballpark Cafe at the State Fair, and enjoy a meal of "good groceries".

He was able to enjoy traveling to the West Coast to visit family, go on a lot of road trips to local fairs, rodeos and carnivals in the Midwest, and particularly enjoyed the trips to South Padre Island, Texas where he expanded his circle of friends.

He was staunchly loyal to his family and friends and will truly be missed.
