Paul Sayotovich was born April 21, 1954 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Frank and Margaret (Petit) Sayotovich. After graduating from high school in Greenfield, Wisconsin Paul served his country in the US Air Force. During his time in the Air Force he met Jacque Renner in Bismarck, North Dakota. They were married on April 26, 1980 in Glen Ullin, North Dakota and later moved to Isanti, Minnesota where they raised their three children.
Paul worked as a railroad conductor and was employed with Union Pacific for the last eight years. He was an active member at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Isanti. Paul’s patriotism and enthusiasm for motorcycle riding led him to become a proud member of the Patriot Guard. Paul was a part owner of the Green Bay Packers and a lifelong Cheesehead. He loved music and played several instruments but particularly enjoyed playing the drums with friends. More than anything Paul was devoted to his family and loved being “Papa”. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Paul died as the result of an accident June 27, 2016 in Anoka County at the age of 62 years, 2 months and 6 days. He was preceded in death by his father, Frank, and brother-in-law, Alfie Mahr.
