Paul Rundle Meged, age 93 of Roundup, MT passed away on August 1, 2017 at the TLC assisted living in Miles City, MT.
Paul was born on April 20, 1924 in Billings, MT. He was the son of Paul Eli and Lillian (Rundle) Meged. Paul attended grade school at the Klein School and graduated from Senior High School in Billings, MT in 1942. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Army. He served his country proud during WWII in the West Pacific where he was a Military Policeman Instructor. After he was honorably discharged in 1946, he returned to the family business with his brother George and father Paul E. at the P. & M. Coal Mine, now referred to as the Signal Butte Coal Mine. After their father passed away from a mining incident early on, Paul R. and his brother George continued to work the mine until 1999. During Paul’s retirement years he enjoyed restoration work on all cars, and was very talented at doing so. He enjoyed his visits with his friends at coffee at the Busy Bee Café, the XL Realty Office and never lacked knowledge when it came to history in the area. Paul also enjoyed keeping track of his nieces and nephews when they were busy with sports and loved to watch the RFD T.V. where he would often catch a glimpse of them on the Rodeo channel. In 2015 he moved to Miles City, Montana due to an illness where his family took care of him until the time he passed away. He was a proud member of the V.F.W Post # 4925, Rotary Club, and a founding member of the Musselshell Stock Growers Association.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents, his brother George and a sister Evelyn. He is survived by his niece Kelli (John) Toledo of Visalia, CA and their son Lane; his nephew Bart (Misty) Meged of Miles City, MT and their children: Haven, Hayes, Harley & Holden.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at the Masonic Lodge in Roundup, MT. Burial will follow in the family plot at the Roundup Cemetery. Memorials may be made the V.F.W Post # 4925. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting: www.stevensonandsons.com.
