Paul Koster
10/31/1978 - 3/9/2007
Wonderful friend to many and incredible father to Isabelle (Izzy) Koster.

Wow, we're at a loss what to say. We've just found out 3 hours ago of his death. Paul and Sonny grew up together at SDSD and have remained fast friends along with several other friends. He was in our wedding as one of the groomsmen. He has a lovely daughter, Isabella (3 in May). he has a wonderful family that we all feel part of. We love his parents and his sisters plus their family. We've joined them occasionally for dinner and they're fabulous. We're praying for them through this incredibly difficult time and hope you all will too. They need all the support they can get, especially Izzy.

Here is a link to an article about the incident.

Here's some photos of our beloved friend.

Sonny, you were one of the first people I thought of after I heard the sad news. You have my condolences. I know you were close friends with Paul. I miss Paul's big heart and sense of humor and am sure you do too.

I'll see you tomorrow in Worthington.

My condolences to you for the loss of Paul. I thought about you when I talked with old friend who informed me about bad news.

I was in Sturgis in August 2006 and really wish you had went to deaf dinner at CSD building in Rapid City on Wednesday because I was there and it would have been good to see you both. :(

Paul will be missed!
