Paul was born on February 19, 1965 in Dubuque, Iowa the son of Allen and Carol (Maiers) Lattner. He graduated from Dubuque Senior High School in 1983. Pauly and his father Allen drove trucks for many years all over our beautiful country. Lastly, he was employed with Marty Arensdorf Quarries.

Pauly had a sense of humor like no other. On many trips to Iowa City he could point out every quarry on the way. The nurses in Iowa City were sad to see him leave because he made their day go faster. Pauly loved hunting, playing cards, and was an avid pool player. He enjoyed watching all sports especially NASCAR, he never missed a race, and watching the Dallas Cowboys.

He is survived by his mother Carol Lattner, of Dubuque (Jiggs Hoftender, of East Dubuque); siblings, Pam Vaassen-Sippel and her husband Scott, of Dubuque, Pat Lattner and his wife Kathy, of Long Grove, IA, and Peggy Flanagan and her husband Mike, of Dubuque. Nephews: Nick Vaassen (fiancé Natalie Schildgen), Dylan Flanagan (Kristina Robey), Logan Flanagan, Mason Lattner, Tyler Sippel and Trevor Sippel, along with his step-mother Linda Lattner. 

He is preceded in death by his father Allen Lattner; grandparents Lyle & Helen Lattner, Pete and Bertha Maiers along with many aunts, uncles and other relatives.

The family would like to thank Dr. John Whalen and the staff at Tri-State Dialysis, Hospice of Dubuque for all their wonderful care they gave to Pauly. A special thank you to all of Pauly’s friends that stopped to visit and enjoy his endless sense of humor and reminisce about old times and thank you to Jiggs Hoftender for taking Carol and Paul to Iowa City for his appointments.
