Paul Anthony Segura Sr., 56, of Racine, passed away after a long battle with diabetes while surrounded by his family on August 7th, 2021 at 6:25 PM. Paul was born on April 17th, 1965 to Christina Segura and raised by her and his father Tommie Kelley Sr. He was the oldest of seven boys. Paul was a part of the Class of 1983 at Horlick High School.

He played football and wrestled for Horlick and won a National Championship as a defensive tackle for the Racine Raiders in 1988. Paul worked at Racine Unified School District for 28 years before retiring. He coached wrestling at Case High School. He was a defensive line coach for the State Championship Park High School football team. Paul was the biggest sports fan, especially cheering on the Dallas Cowboys, Milwaukee Brewers and Wisconsin Badgers. He was overcome with joy watching the Milwaukee Bucks bring home the championship trophy this season. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, always entertaining with hospitality, jokes and stories. But his absolute favorite thing to do was to spend time with his grandchildren: Trevion Williams, Ariana Marie Segura and Paul Anthony Segura III. There was nothing that brought him more joy and comfort. He loved his brothers: Tommie Kelley Jr., Timothy Kelley, Michael Kelley, Benito Kelley, Rudy Montoya and Shane Montoya. His nieces and nephews were a major focus of his life and he loved them all. “Uncle Paul” as he was known to many, truly went above and beyond to be sure that they had a fun childhood. He was a father figure to many including his brothers and especially to niece Rachelle (Ryan) Eilers and nephew Tim Kelley. He was treated as a brother by his uncles and countless cousins but was the closest with cousin Arnie Palacios and Uncle Jesse (Linda) Segura. Paul was known as a family man, but there are many that considered him a friend. Some of his best friends were Eddie Garza, Billy Contreras and Felix Mireles. Paul was preceded in death by his mother and father, grandmother Felipa (Helen) Aguillen, Grandfather Porfirio Aguillen, his unborn son Anthony, good friends: Jim McDougal, Marco Rodriguez and Joe Garcia along with many aunts, uncles, cousins. He is survived by his wife Lisa, son Paul Jr, daughters Cassandra and Amber, sister-in-law Kristina (Rick) Onyon, mother and father-in-law Joe & Connie Lipari, grandchildren, his brothers and many uncles, an aunt, cousins and friends. He is now at peace with no more pain or hardships. He is free and he is smiling. Please celebrate life every day, the way Paul lived.
