Mr. Paul E. Conlan

Mr. Paul E. Conlan died on Monday, April 8, 2013, from complications following a brain aneurysm on Dec. 27, 2012.

Paul, the only child of Mr. Eugene Conlan and Mrs. Erna “Sue” Conlan, was born in Miami, Florida, on Nov. 9, 1949.

He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology and in 1971 received a degree in aerospace engineering. While living in Atlanta, Paul met Susan Donald. In 1980 they married and over the next eight years their family grew with the arrival of a daughter, followed by two sons. Paul and Susan moved their family to Newnan in 1993.

In 1995 Paul started East Point-based energy consulting business Enercom Inc.

He was an avid backpacker and was active in the Boy Scouts of America in Newnan. Here he also rekindled his love of photography, which he turned into another business, fstopblues.com. He participated in a number of photography groups in the Atlanta-Metropolitan area and was instrumental in helping plan the annual Slow Exposures show.

He is survived by his wife, Susan; sons, David and Daniel; daughter, Martha Williams; son-in-law, Jason Williams; and grandson, Lane. A loving father, grandfather, and friend, Paul is dearly missed.

There will be a visitation at McKoon’s Funeral Home Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. A memorial service will be at Central Baptist Church at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 1, 2013, with Dr. Joel E. Richardson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Boy Scouts of America or Slow Exposures, P.O. Box 489, Zebulon, GA 30295. Online condolences may be expressed at www.mckoon.com .
