Paul B. Taber was born June 29, 1923 in Hector, Minnesota to Frank and Theora (Fahlberg) Taber. Paul grew up in Hector. After graduating from high school in 1941, he served in the U.S. Navy as a carrier pilot from 1942-1953. He attended the University of Minnesota, worked as an accountant, and for the City of Robbinsdale. He enjoyed flying, fishing, golfing, cars, reading, traveling, and spending time at their winter home in Tucson, Arizona. After retirement, he and Fran lived in northern Minnesota, his last home in Crosslake. He loved spending time with family, catching up on all that was going on in their lives and of course, teasing and joking whenever possible. He was kind and had a huge heart.
