Paul was born on January 22, 1968, to Patrick & Suzanne (Edwards) Granigan. He graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1987 where he played football and ran track. He continued his education by attending Western Michigan University where he earned a degree in business in 1996. In March of 2007, Paul began working for Financial Services through Berrien County then later transitioned to becoming the business manager for the Berrien County Sherriff’s Office.

Always known for making friends, Paul would be the life of the party. His outgoing nature and heart of gold made it easy for him to meet new people. He loved socializing, especially when he was grilling out and there was tequila or Miller Lite nearby. Paul also loved traveling with his significant other, Buffy DeLong. The two would travel to Mexico to enjoy the tequila paired with spicy food and would go up north to take in the beautiful outdoors. Paul was also a proud member of the St. Joseph Benton Harbor Elks Club 541.

Paul is survived by his parents, Patrick and Suzanne of St. Joseph; significant other of 11 years, Buffy DeLong; uncles, John (Cathy Satek) Edwards, Bill (Cathy Clark) Edwards and David (Pat) Edwards; cousins, Hilliary & Ben Edwards; brothers-in-law, Scooter DeLong & Chip DeLong; mother-in-law, Nancy DeLong; best friend, Eric Etter; and loving fur babies, Clyde & Louie (formally Chloe & Lola, but then realized they were male cats).

To Buffy and Paul's family...so sorry for this shocking loss. I did not know Paul well but Buffy, you guys were always part of that slightly crazy early morning group that I unlocked the door for at South Shore. Always a smile, even at 4:30 in the morning. On behalf of myself and the entire staff at SSHRC, our sympathy, thoughts and prayers to you.

Only great memories of Paul. Only smiles from Paul. Only friends with Paul. Everybody should know Paul and spend time with him. I know that I for one could have benefited from more Paul in my life. I’m so sorry Buffy. Paul was one of the good ones and the lives that he touched will ripple forever. My condolences to his family. No parent should have to say goodbye forever to their child. Rest now my friend.

Paul’s passing is such a loss. He always made time for people and was just a good guy. I will miss our conversations and his wise counsel and knowledge. Most of all, I will miss his incredible sense of humor and his contributions to our Saturday afternoon college football text group. His insights, personal photos and love of MSU Football are legendary. Godspeed Paul. You will be greatly missed!

Incredibly sad to hear about the loss of Paul. What a treasure he was. Infectiously gregarious, fun loving, and kind. My heart breaks for his family and loved ones for walking through this unexpected reality. Although I haven't seen you since 1997, I have no doubt that our friendship would have continued right where it left off. Love to you, friend! Oh. . . and Go Green@
