Paul Travis Jackson, age 80, Mound City, Kan., left this earthly life to be with the Lord Sunday, March 22, 2020, at his home. He will be greatly missed by many family members and friends.

He was born on July 9, 1939, at the family farm in northern Bourbon County, Kan., the son of Raymond and Bertha Colgin Jackson. He leaves behind his wife of 58 1/2 years, Wyoma May (Cramer) Jackson, three children, Travis and wife Julie, Brian, Leland and wife Deanne; nine grandchildren, Nikia, Eric, Dianna, Emily, Jacob, Wyatt, Alexis, Carly, and Glynnis, fourteen great grandchildren, Tia, Emma, McKenna, Devin, Zayden, Kale, Cameron, Matthew, Clarissa, Raylee, Gabriel, Olivia, Farrah, and Knile; one great-great-grandchild, Brange; two brothers, Darrell and Leroy Jackson and one sister Evelyn Larkey. He was preceded in death by his parents; five sisters, Verlin Frame, Velvia Pearman, Marybell Pruitt, Jessie Ross, and Joan Stewart; two brothers, Dorwin and Gilbert Jackson and one great- grandchild, Braden.

Paul was a hard working farmer and could fix almost anything, but his lifelong passion was working in the oil field with his brothers Darrell and Leroy, his sons and his nieces and nephews. He served in the Army from 1962 to 1963 where he gained many Army buddies. He loved mowing the grass with his John Deere  lawn tractor, playing with his dogs, fishing, camping, gardening, country music and vanilla ice cream (homemade preferred). He enjoyed collecting pocket knives, hat pins, coins, and going to the Pioneer Harvest Festival each year. He was a member of the Mooney-Long American Legion Post 279 in Blue Mound, Kan. and the Mound City Christian Church.

Livestreaming of a private family service will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 26, 2020.  On Youtube.com search for Mound City Christian Church. Graveside will be at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 26, 2020, at the Bronson, Kan., cemetery. Individual respects and guest registry can be made from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, Mound City Chapel. The family suggests contributions to Mound City Christian Church, Integrity Hospice, or Mooney-Long American Legion Post 279.  You are encouraged to leave condolences at www.schneiderfunerals.com.
