Paul Stephen Earl, age 57, of Trafford passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 22, 2022 in the Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh. Paul was born on November 10, 1965 in Jeannette the son of the late Charles H. and Elizabeth Jean “Betty” (Hubinsky) Earl. Paul graduated from Penn-Trafford High School. Paul had his own ministry of sharing the Gospel though his hand made metal crosses that he passed out to those who were in need of comfort. He made them out of scrap metal and made them into something beautiful just how God takes the broken pieces of our lives and makes us whole. Paul was generous with his time and money. His willingness to help whenever he was needed and his quick wit and great laugh. His family can’t imagine their lives with out him. They have comfort knowing he is in Heaven with his parents and brother. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Charles Paul Earl, his brother-in-law James Story, blacksmith mentor and father figure Lenny Elstrodt. Paul is survived by his siblings Pamela Jean Story (Bryce), Darlene Ann Cirilli (Tony) and Vicki Lynn Truninger (Ken); his nephews and nieces Kelly and Daniel Story, Matthew Cirilli (Stefanie), CJ Earl (Brandi Ross) and Derek Truninger (Abbey); his great-niece Mila Rose Earl and his beloved dog Dave.
