Paul Scoles 1943-2014
There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, June 28 at Boeing Creek Park 3rd NW and NW 175th in Shoreline 98177, 2pm, for Paul Beach Scoles III who died May 9, 2014.

A Vietnam vet, he earned the Purple Heart, Air Medal, Silver Star, Soldier’s Medal, Gallantry Cross with Palm, Vietnam Campaign Medal with 60 Device, Combat Infantryman’s Badge, Vietnam Service Medal and National Defense Service Medal.

After a childhood in Japan and California, he moved to the Pacific Northwest in the late 1970s where he owned and operated Ironwood Studios - a successful recording studio.

After retiring in 2008 he got seriously into model railroading, building a layout so elaborate that people come from around the world to see it.

A Master Model Railroader, he published photography, and magazine articles, and a DVD series on creating model scenery.

He was a baseball fan and a player, who joined and played in the Senior Baseball League for several years.

Paul volunteered with Shoreline Police for several years until his talents took him to other projects - Seattle Opera recordings, magazine articles, helping with his former recording studio, building /designing scenery for model trains, his grandchildren, and spending time with his wife.

According to the police officer who supervised the neighborhood centers, "Paul would come to volunteer twice a week in spite of his old war wounds (I think he had at least 7 bullet fragments still floating around in his legs). Exceedingly intelligent, he'd grasp whatever task was set in front of him. Great sense of humor, work ethic and love of country and family- it was an honor he shared his talents with Shoreline Police."
