The Edmond Sun
Paul Lee Overton Jr., 74, of Edmond, Okla., was delivered into the hands of our Lord on August 27, 2012, a quiet Monday morning.
Paul was born July 16, 1938 in Chickasha, Okla. He graduated from Guthrie High School in 1956, and married Carol Elaine Brown on August 30, 1958. Paul was a graduate of Southern Methodist University with a Masters degree in Sacred Music. He was also a veteran officer of the United States Navy.

He pursued his love of music and faith with the highest integrity and upheld the highest ideals of peace and fellowship. Paul was a devoted husband and an inspiring and loving father. Most of all, he was a generous caretaker of his faith.
