Paul Norman Small

March 15, 1938 — July 21, 2023


Paul Norman Small, 85, passed away July 21, 2023 at his home surrounded by his loved ones. He was born March 15, 1938 to Henry Milton Small and Vera (Yow) Small.

Paul was a proud veteran of the US Army Honor Guard. He was a hard worker and held positions at Gulf Tank Farm and Holiday Tours, but his passion was the family farm where he was Owner/Operator of P&J Farms in Randleman for 30+ years.  Paul was known to be a man of his word and had a tender heart.  He was also a firm believer of doing things right the first time – a trait which he instilled in his children.  He enjoyed going to cow sales, attending family get-togethers, and spending many retirement hours riding his four-wheeler around the farm.  He loved his family dearly and was extremely proud of his children.  Mr. Small attended Friendship Baptist Church of Level Cross for the last several years.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jessie Small; his children Scott (Starr) Small of Greensboro, Kim (Danny) Davis of Asheboro, Jennifer (Brandon) Laughlin of Randleman; grandchildren, Ashley (Michael) Smith of Gibsonville, Justin Pennington (Melissa McBride) of Gibsonville, Hillary (Aaron) Pritchard of Asheboro, Jacob Davis in Alaska, Haven (Corey) Sarvis of Asheboro, Logan Laughlin, Aislyn Laughlin; five great-grandchildren; Sisters, Hazel (John) Lamb of Randleman, Lyde Small (sister-in-law) of Randleman; several nieces and nephews; and his faithful, four-legged companion - Daisy. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by brothers, Earl Small, LJ Small, an infant brother; and sister, Helen Hutchins.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, July 25, 2023 from 1-1:45 pm at Pugh Funeral Home, 600 S. Main St in Randleman. Funeral Services will follow at 2 pm in the chapel with Rev. Scott Hyatt and Rev. Brian Clark officiating. Randolph County Honor Guard will provide Military Honors.
