His education began by riding his pony to a one-room school house, Pioneer Elementary (1 to 8). Then he went to Gilmore City High school, where he graduated with a four-year football scholarship to Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa. He completed his education with a bachelor of science degree and a business major. Before retirement, Paul worked for 40 years in the engineering department with a variety of companies: Collins Radio Company in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, United Technology in Hartford, and Belcan in East Hartford.

He leaves his wife of 58 years, Mary E. (Goodrich) Junkmann and their children Joan Marie (Essex), Paul K. Jr. and wife Lynn (Clarksville, Tennessee), and Michael W. (Essex).
