Paul Wiley Lueders was born in Lufkin, Texas to Edgar T. and Helen Robbins Lueders on December 13, 1934 and passed away on January 23, 2021 in Katy, Texas.

While growing up, Paul and his family lived in many different places throughout Texas, but he considered Corpus Christi his hometown. He graduated from W.B. Ray High School in 1953 and then spent two years in the Army before enrolling in college. He graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in History and later received a degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas. During his career, he worked as a computer programmer analyst for several companies in the Houston area and retired from Houston Lighting and Power Company (CenterPoint Energy).

In 1970, Paul met and married his wife Norene. After a few years, they moved, with their children, to the Katy-Fulshear area where they continued to live and raise their family.

Buying and restoring old cars was Paul's favorite hobby. He also loved working on his property near Fulshear. He planted over 40 pecan and other trees and always had a large vegetable garden. In addition, he tried his hand at raising cows and making sausage and wine. He also loved music and for many years had season tickets to the Houston Grand Opera and the Opera in the Heights. Although he was not an overall big sports fan, he loved watching the Houston Astros and was a long-time season ticket holder for Katy Tiger Football games.

However, the thing Paul loved most was his family. He often hosted large barbecues for his family and friends and his smoked brisket and sausage were always the highlight of the gatherings.

Paul is survived by his wife of 50 years, Norene of Katy, his son Ryan and his wife Amy of Boerne, his daughter April Rademacher (Storey) and her husband Geof of Weston, Connecticut, his grandchildren Christa Lueders, Art Rademacher, and step grandchildren Cameron and Julia Storey. He is also survived by his sister Barbara Hairston and her husband Bob of San Antonio, his brother David Lueders and his wife Kyle of Houston, his brother Allen Lueders and a number of nieces, nephews and other relatives. He is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Gene and Thomas Lueders and his sister Grace Allen.

Paul's family would like to thank the staff of the Legacy at Falcon Point and the members of the A-Med Hospice Team for their care during the last few years for his life.

A private service and celebration of Paul's life will be scheduled at a later time. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Paul's memory may do so to the charity of their choice.
