Paul Cochey, 84, of Gibsonburg, passed away February 27, 2022. He was born at home in Fremont on October 13, 1937, to Paul John and Margaret (Hausman) Cochey.

He is best remembered as being a simple man who also was a true chevy person through and through, his favorite model being the 1957 Chevy car.
