Paul Hugh Guinn, age 70, passed away June 1, 2012, in Muskogee, OK. Paul was born June 3, 1941, in Muskogee, OK, to Arthur Lee and Anna Josephine (Bishop) Guinn.
Paul was a commercial driver for many years throughout his life. He enjoyed leather working and later in life he turned that hobby into a business, operating a small leather working business. Paul had numerous friends with whom he enjoyed socializing regularly.
