Paul Martin Downey Sr.

May 20, 1934 — April 2, 2022

Paul Downey passed away peacefully April 2, 2022. He was born in Madison to Eugene and Mildred Downey on May 20, 1934. After graduating from Edgewood high School in 1952, he joined the US Air Force, serving in the far East before landing in Upper Michigan and marrying Helen MacArthur. Paul and Helen settled in the Madison Area and were joined by daughter Cheryl and son Paul Jr. After Helen's passing in 1971, Paul married Sherrill (Beck) Thompson and welcomed her daughter Marcie to the family. For the past 38 years, Paul had the company of his best friend and soul mate Mary Harbort.

Paul is survived by his love Mary, his daughter Cheryl Gee and son Paul Jr. He is further survived by Mary's sons Todd, Jeff, Randy, Jerry, and Gene along with the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren of his wonderfully blended family. He is welcomed into heaven by parents Gene and Millie, brother Bob, sisters Mary and Carol, and Helen.

Paul's family wishes to thank the Staff at Prairie Gardens in Sun Prairie for their amazing care and support, Moments Hospice for their comforting assistance and guidance, and the Madison VA hospital for their medical care and direction.

Per Paul's wishes, there will be no immediate services but a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
