It is with sad hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Paul Kaczur on Wednesday November 19, 2008 in his 59th year at St. Mary's Hospital, Kitchener.
Paul was a member of the Miller Industries Race Recovery Team and has been driving the turn two wrecker at Michigan International Speedway before Miller Industries' involvement. He has also attended races at Talladega, Daytona, and Darlington.
Paul was the cherished husband and best friend of Lynn. Loving and adored father and best friend to Kelly and her husband Dale, and Mike and his wife Sarah. Loving papa to Evan and Owen. Pre-deceased by his parents Elisez and Anna and a brother Peter. Also survived by nieces, nephews and many friends.
Paul was the proud owner/operator of Ken's Towing. He started towing at 16 years old. From 1967-68 he ran a Sunoco station and tow truck in Burlington. In 1970 he started PK towing with his brother Pete. In 1974 they moved to Brantford and bought Ken's Towing which at the time had three trucks. The business grew steadily to where it now operates sixteen trucks.

The tow operator stood and faced his Maker, which must always come to air.
He hoped his chains were left behind and he hadn't brought them on to bare.
"Step forward now, wrecker driver how shall I deal with you?"
Have you always rendered aid? To your Maker, have you been true?
The tower, with dirt on his hands, said "No sir, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who drive wreckers can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've taken people cars, because life is just that tough.
But I never took a penny, that wasn't mine to keep.
Though I logged a lot of hours when the bills just got too deep.
And I never passed by a cry for help though at times I had little to gain,
and sometimes, please forgive me, I could do little more than feel their pain.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.
They only wanted me around in their worst of moments there.
But if you have a place for me here, well...it need not be too grand.
I never expected or had too much so if you don't...I'll understand."
There was silence all around the room where the saints respectfully stood.
As the tow operator waited quietly, for the judgment...bad or good.
"Step forward now, wrecker driver, you've borne your burdens well.
Come tow on heaven streets, You've done your time in hell."
