Stephen who most knew as “Paul” was the husband of Barbara Ann (Miller) Wilkinson. Soulmates for 21 years, and married July 2, 2010.
Born, December 1, 1963, in Stockton-on-Tees, England, he was the son of Marjorie (Robinson) Wilkinson of Exeter Township and the late Harry Wilkinson.
Paul’s parents emigrated to the United States in 1965 to offer the finest opportunities to their family and became naturalized citizens.
Paul was a 1981 graduate of Oley Valley High School. After graduating, he was the owner and operator of Wilkinson Flooring until 1992.
He was employed with Service Electric Cablevision as a cable technician for 29 years. Additionally, Paul was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
Paul was a member of the 45ers, an International Antique Motorcycle Club, as well as the Antique Motorcycle Club of America.
Known as a hard worker, Paul could often be found tending to his chickens, beekeeping, splitting logs, gardening, riding motorcycle, traveling, and listening to music at his fire pit. He was a man with a great sense of humor. His passion above all else, however, was being a dedicated husband and father who spent countless moments offering his children life lessons, guidance, advice, and the freedom to fly.
