The Record News just received word that Orangefield oilman Paul Cormier has passed away at the age of 90.

Comier had been ill and under nursing care for the last few years.

Very generous to his community, Cormier was the benefactor to many churches and the Orangefield School District.

Jewel Cormier Park, named for Cormier’s late wife was donated to the school several years ago and most recently the family gave the school the Paul Cormier Museum.

Details of services have not been released at this time.
