Paul Crites, 88, of Independence, MO passed away Tuesday, February 5, 2019 in Flower Mound, TX.

Paul was born on February 7, 1930 in Lutesville, MO to Osa and Cora (Elledge) Crites. He was one of seven brothers. He proudly served in the United States Army and later worked for Lake City Ammunition Plant. His career allowed him to travel and experience many places outside of the U.S. He was a man who loved life and enjoyed doing woodwork, traveling, gardening, the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs. He was never happier than when spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Paul’s survivors include his children Thomas “Gene” Decker and wife Barbara of Olathe, KS, Debby Swackhamer and husband Tom of Flower Mound, TX, Lynn Crites and wife Connie of Justin, TX, and Linda Whitmore of Kansas City, MO; a brother Don Crites of Kingsford Heights, IN; six grandchildren Robert Swackhamer, Elizabeth Davidson, Matt Crites, Christine Humphries, Diane Hawkins, and Jennifer Taylor; four great-grandchildren Zach Hawkins, Justin Hawkins, Chloe Crites, and Allister Humphries.

He was preceded in death by his wife of over 50 years: Evelyn (Hyde) Crites, and great-granddaughter Lora Leigh Humphries.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Crossroads Hospice.
