Paul Schurig was born on October 3, 1939 in Gonzales, Texas to Marie and Wally Schurig. Paul left this world all too soon on June 5, 2013 after a battle with dementia and Alzheimer's. He was the oldest of two sons growing up in Gonzales. Paul was a bright and athletic child, football, basketball, track and baseball. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Paul married Doris Jean Grossman of Shiner, Texas on November 4, 1961. They had two sons, Kyle Glen Schurig, born on November 12, 1962, and Randy Lane Schurig, born on July 31, 1967.

Paul worked many jobs growing up, finally settling in as service manager for 27 years at Krueger Chevrolet in New Braunfels.
Paul also, as his wife and children did, showed horses on a competitive level. As he grew in years, he chose to judge horses on a professional level. He held judges cards for, paint, pinto, appaloosa, palomino, mule and pony associations.

Paul donated his time and facilities to the local 4-H club and offered his expertise in the showing area from the judges' viewpoint.

Paul and Doris founded Twin Pine Stables in New Braunfels, a facility that offers both boarding and training in both Western and English riding and lessons for beginner and experienced riders.

Paul is survived by his, two sons, Kyle Schurig of Buda, Texas and Randy Schurig of New Braunfels, Texas, and his six grandchildren, Austen, Quinn, Rainer, and Ronan Schurig of Buda, Texas, Douglas Schurig of San Antonio, Texas, and Kristina Schurig of San Antonio, Texas and his brother Tommy Schurig of Gonzales Texas, his wife Pat and their children, Ira, Ina and Ian. Paul leaves behind a legacy of dedication and love that will be sorely missed by his children and grandchildren and all of the many students, colleagues, and friends who were touched by his kindness.
