Paul Quinichett, Jr


Paul Henry Quinichett Jr. fell from the sky on July 30,1960 on a loan to Paul Sr. and Sylvia.

Paul “Junie” as his loving family and close friends called him was part of Grove City High School 1978 graduating class. Paul “Junie” moved on to further his education at Franklin University. He also served in the US Airforce.

Paul “Junie” was known to be a Gentle Giant to most and was able to put a smile on anyone’s face. Although Paul “Junie” had a courageous battle with cancer as well as many obstacles. He was able to overcome them all and leave a lasting impression on all our hearts. Knowing Paul “Junie” was knowing you was always in for a surprise whenever you spoke to him. He always had a joke to tell, and you couldn’t help but laugh, and was always respectful. Paul “Junie” enjoyed football, his favorite NFL team was the Oakland Raiders, and he didn’t care about college football as much, he only like to watch it when the Big 10 Buckeyes were playing.

Paul “Junie” was a jack of all trades and loved anything he could get his hands on, from hauling and moving anything you ask him to move. Paul “Junie” will get the job done. Paul “Junie” loved and cared for his family and friends dearly. Paul “Junie” would give you the shirt off his back if anyone needed it. Paul “Junie” was the beck and call to his wife Vanessa and children as well to his loving mother and sister. Paul “Junie” really loved to help others and if you were blessed to get to know him you will know he was very passionate man, it didn’t matter if it was a family member, friends, or stranger. He will do his best to help you.

    Sending my Condolences to the Quinichett Family! Paul Henry was a Soldier, stand up Guy and a lovable person. He would always ask me how my brothers were doing. He said when I look at a tomato, I think about your brother Larry, he loves tomatoes. He would say tell Marvin I said Hi! Paul Henry would always keep you laughing, you always leave with a smile on your face. Fly high, you in GOD hands, rest easy!
