Paul "Medic" Roshong

1947 - 2021

Paul B. Roshong, age 73, of Toledo, passed away peacefully Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Perrysburg.

He was born on September 3, 1947 to Joseph and Hazel (Houser) Roshong in Toledo, OH. After graduating from Scott High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, following in his father and older brother, Carl's footsteps. Paul proudly completed two tours of duty as a medic in Vietnam and received a Purple Heart, Gold Star and a Bronze Star. Paul was affectionately nicknamed 'Doc' while in the Navy and upon returning to Toledo, he answered to the name 'Medic'. Paul could often be seen doing what he loved, cruising around town on his motorcycle or in his car.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Carl Roshong and Earl Roshong. Paul is survived by his sister, Elaine (Tom) Bender of Lambertville, MI; nieces, Trista (John) Roshong-Wilcox, Lisa (Tommy) Havens and Rhonda (Doug) Irving; nephews, Scott, Ryan and Nathan Roshong and Christopher (Sandy) Zollweg.

At Paul's request, there will be no funeral services at this time. His ashes will be buried, with military honors, at the National Cemetery in Holly, MI at a later date. Paul will be remembered and missed for his generosity, patriotism, humor and wit. Rest in Peace, Semper Fi.
