HUBBARD, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Paul J. “JP” Fluent, age 70 of Hubbard passed away peacefully at his daughter’s home on Monday, June 20, 2022.

Paul was born May 11, 1952 in Youngstown, Ohio a son of John “Jack” and Virginia M. Sikora Fluent.

He was a 1970 graduate of Hubbard High School.

Paul was a millwright at Delphi in Warren, Ohio for 30 years retiring in 2000.

He was a member of Mahoning Archaeological Society. Paul immensely enjoyed music, especially listening to Jimmy Buffett and Neil Young on the patio in the warm sunshine. He was an avid fan of motorcycles and had spent many years riding the bikes he built and collected throughout his life. Paul’s greatest treasures, though, were his granddaughters who were his center focus from the very beginning. They always kept him laughing, warming his heart and making his blue eyes shine.

He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his family: his daughters, Tiffany (Jord) Althuizen of The Hague, Netherlands and Courtney (Neil) Button of Hubbard and four grandchildren, Hadley, Josephine, Ainsley and Lillian. He also leaves his brother, Terry L. (Susie) Fluent of Ashtabula, Ohio.
