Paul C. Nolan, Jr. went to join the Lord on August 11, 2023 after passing peacefully at home. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife, Susan Nolan, his daughter, Paula Brackett and son-in law Samuel Brackett, and stepchildren Susan Deniker and husband Jeff Deniker, Scott Llewellyn and wife Donna Llewellyn, and Michael Llewellyn and wife Shawn Golden-Llewellyn.
Paul was a devoted grandfather to Cameron and Matthew Brackett, Madison and Haley Llewellyn, Elizabeth and Caroline Deniker, and Bailey and Rylan Llewellyn.
Paul is also survived and will be missed by his sister Mary Broadwater and husband Tom Broadwater; brother William (Billy Nolan) and wife Frances Ann Nolan; and brother Richard (Ric) Loar and wife Liz; nieces Shannon Moyer and husband Mike, and Tracy Bennett and husband Aaron; nephews Austin Loar, Shawn Loar and Jim Robertson; great niece Brilee Bennett; and great nephews Nolan Moyer and Grady Bennett.
Paul was the son of the late Paul C. Nolan, Sr. and Margaret Loar.
Paul’s life was an example of service, hard work and generosity. Paul was an Army veteran who proudly served his country in Vietnam. He received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal and Good Conduct Medal for his service.
He established his own trucking company, Nolan Trucking, which he operated for decades. He finished his career at Northrop Grumman (formerly ATK) following twenty-two years of service, where he was a member of the Chemical Workers Union Local 261. Paul took great pride in his work and especially enjoyed and appreciated his co-workers and friends.
Paul was always finding opportunities to help others, by bringing food (especially fresh produce from the farmers market), cutting grass or visiting friends in need.
Paul was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, as well as a member of the Barton American Legion Post #189.
The family wants to thank UPMC Western Maryland Hospice, and especially Corrine Jimafield and John Lapid, for the wonderful care provided to Paul during the last few months of his illness. Their compassionate care provided an incredible support during a difficult time and will not be forgotten.
