Paul Stuckle Obituary, Death – On April 10, 2023, Paul Gregory Stuckle of Allen passed away. He was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in April 2021 and died as a result of the disease. His remains were donated to science. Visitation will be conducted on Saturday, April 15th from 2:30-4:30pm at First Christian Church of Allen (1207 Twin Creeks Drive, Allen, TX 75013). Paul Stuckle was born on August 3, 1958 in Inglewood, California to Don and Phyllis Stuckle. After graduating from high school, he attended St. Edwards University and earned a B.A. in Criminal Justice in 1980.
He earned his Juris Doctorate from Texas Tech School of Law and the Dallas Police Academy in 1983. Throughout his professional career, Paul had a range of positions. He was committed to all he did, no matter where he worked or served. He worked as a patrol officer for the Dallas Police Department before becoming the attorney for the Fort Worth Police Department. Following that, he went into private practice with Stuckle & Ferguson PLLC. Paul was also a Municipal Court Judge for The Colony. Paul’s professional career was completed with Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law.
Paul was a devout Christian who enjoyed learning more about Jesus. He cared deeply about his family, friends, and dogs. He was also a major supporter of the professional sports teams in Dallas. Paul had many strange interests, ranging from concerts to movies to casinos to pizza, and his sense of humor had his friends and family in stitches. His father, Don Stuckle, and mother, Phyllis Stuckle, died before he was born. He is survived by his wife, Megan Stuckle; son, Scott Stuckle; daughter-in-law, Abby Stuckle; brother, David Stuckle; sister-in-law, Ana Stuckle; mother-in-law, Lynn Odle; and Kenneth Spurgin.
Paul’s professional partners included Alyse Ferguson, his law partner, Dianna Holliefield, his secretary, and Allen Ayers, his associate. Special thanks to Paul’s long-time best friend, Chris Routt, for his practical assistance; Brian Pence, for his practical help; Jeff VanCura, for his daily amusing quips; and Gene Sera, for his weekly check-ins and prayers, for their support and encouragement throughout Paul’s life and in his final days.
Paul has loved and is proud of “the boys” (Austin Daniels, Bobby Evans, Cameron Johnson, Davis Gill, Grant Master, Grayson Vick, and Josh VanCura). Thank you to Eunice from Hospice and Katie from Baylor. Megan would also want to thank all of her friends who encouraged and supported her along the way. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The ALS Association, 1300 Wilson Blvd, Suite 600, Arlington, VA 22209.
