Paul Edward Tabler, better known by the nickname “P Tac”, went to be with the Lord on May 6, 2022, at
the Riverside Methodist Hospital, in Columbus, Ohio. Paul was born on April 9, 1951, to Shirl Sherman
Tabler and Katherine Flowers Tabler in Zanesville, Ohio. He was the second of 9 children. He is survived
by his siblings (Danny, Deitra, Linda, Cheryl, and Gene), five sons (Jimmy Mayle, Steven and Keith
Tabler, Mark Nice “Marky”, & Justin Nice) along with his nine grandchildren (Kelsey, Brent, Lashayla,
Jakayla, Jayden, Destiny, Josh, Eva, and Boone), a multitude of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and
great-nephews, and his beloved Marla Nice. Paul is preceded in death by his parents and 3 brothers
(Michael, Shirl Wayne and Barry). Paul was more than a father, a brother, and an Uncle. He was a friend
and a helping hand, and his fun-loving personality could make anyone laugh. Paul took on the role of
being a father long before he had children of his own as he cared for and provided for his siblings in his
youth after the unfortunate passing of their father. Paul possessed many talents; he was musically inclined
and loved going around singing and playing the guitar for family and friends. He was one of the most
creative people you would ever meet. He touched the hearts of many and treated everyone like family,
even strangers. P Tac would greet you with a “Howdy family” even if you weren’t related or hadn't seen
each other in years. He was never hesitant to lend a helping hand, and this is evident through the countless
people he was there for and the multitude of donations he made to different organizations. P Tac was the
heart of Tabler Town (Kilvert, Ohio), where he spent most of his time with family and friends. He will be
dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. To honor Paul’s wishes there will not be any
funeral services, but a Memorial and Celebration of Life at a later date.  Stone-Matheney Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the funeral home.  To send a note of condolence to the family go to
