Emmett Paul Papin Jr, 74, of Del City, passed away Tuesday, Feb 25, 2003. He was born Jan 22, 1929 in Oklahoma City to Emmett Paul Papin Sr and Dorothy (Wilcoxson) Papin. He attended Northeast High School and Oklahoma City University. He married his childhood sweetheart, Margaret Ann Mitcham on Sep 22, 1950 and entered the Army that same year. He and his son, Paul, owned and operated Papin's Body Shop together for many years.

He was an avid fisherman and had a beautiful cabin and acreage at Lake Texhoma where he and his children and grandchildren enjoyed many years together. He loved to watch professional boxing with his son, son-in-laws and grandson. He loved to cook for his family and friends, goulash and lasagne were some of his specialities. He loved to play practical jokes and always had a great fish story to tell anyone who would listen. He will be most remembered for his kindness, generosity and love for his family.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Margaret; son, Paul and wife Wendy; three daughters, Terry Williams and husband Gary; Pam and husband Ronnie; Madonna and husband Steve; 12 grandchildren (names omitted); 5 great grandchildren (names omitted); 2 brothers, Sonny Papin of CA; and Bobby Papin of Nevada; 4 sisters, Doris Seviell of OKC, Dorothy Ann Knight of Harrah, Judy Dockery of Choctaw, and Patty Burwell of Moore.
