Everyone here at Cowsmopolitan extended our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Paul.
Paul Trapp Sr., age 76, passed away peacefully on November 18th, 2022. Paul was born on August 4th, 1946 in Hastings, MN. He lived his entire life on his family’s grain and dairy farm in Ninninger. Paul was very involved in showing dairy cattle all over the country and in Canada for many years. After selling the dairy herd in the early 2000s, Paul started driving semi truck over the road, before eventually becoming a parts runner for NAPA.
Paul loved to travel, go to cattle shows and sporting events, and spending time with his family and friends. He could often be found telling stories about the “good old days.” Anyone who knew him always talked about how much he loved farming and the dairy industry. Paul was also very involved in Dakota Electric Association as a board member for eighteen years.
Paul is survived by his three children: Christina Wright (Jeff), Paul Jr. (Sarah), and Jennifer Hoeft (David). His two step-sons: Bryan Jacobson (Kelly), and Jeremy Jacobson (Lori). His two nephews, and his 9 grandchildren.
Paul is preceded in death by his wife Patricia, his parents Henry and Helen (Tank) and his sister Elizabeth Jahnz.
A Memorial service will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at 11:00 A.M with a visitation being held one hour prior at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Hastings, Minnesota. Interment will be held at a later date.
