Plan Ahead

Schweizer, Paul Anton

December 12, 1966 –
 June 14, 2021


Paul Anton Schweizer passed away unexpectedly on June 14, 2021. He was born on December 12, 1966, to Fred and Connie Schweizer. He married Susan Kramer on August 4, 1990. 

Paul graduated from Lake Highlands High School in 1985. He attended The University of Texas in Austin, graduating in 1989. While at the university, he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta and  active in student government. In his senior year, he was selected by the UT Parents’ Association as The Most Outstanding Male Student. Paul graduated from The University of Texas School of Law in 1994. While there, he was an Associate Editor of the Texas Law Review.

After graduating from law school, Paul joined a well-established firm before becoming a self-employed attorney. Although he had a long list of accomplishments and accolades, he felt the most important job he ever had was being a husband and dad. Family was of the utmost importance to Paul, and he made sure to let everyone know. 

Paul traveled extensively in Texas, the United States and various parts of the world. Favorite spots include Big Bend National Park, Alaska, Iceland, Hawaii, and most importantly, Santa Fe, New Mexico. However, his favorite part about traveling was simply spending time with family. When the boys were young, he regularly took them on what he called “Days Around Dallas”. Taking his wife and mother out for impromptu drives and lunches was a frequent occurrence. 

Having been born and raised in Dallas, Paul had an immense love for White Rock Lake which was only a five-minute walk from his Lakewood home. He enjoyed watching his sons row, assisting with neighborhood projects, and spending time with his wife and dogs.

 Small gestures were also important to Paul, whether these gestures were reaching out to old friends while driving through their towns, sending small notes or gifts to let them know he was thinking of them or creating delicious meals for friends and family from whatever was in the fridge. He did each of these things with just as much thoughtfulness and care as the other, putting all other matters aside– even on the morning of his passing.     

Paul was a Christian man with a deeply rooted faith and an extremely strong moral compass. 

Surviving family members include his wife Susan, sons Will, Andrew, and Luke, mother Connie, sister Cindy, father-in-law Jerry, and mother-in-law Jane, sister-in-law Ann, brother-in-law Gary, niece Sarah, and dogs Roosevelt, Maverick, and Sparky. He was predeceased by his father Fred. 

If desired, donations can be made to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society

A memorial service will be held at the Church of the Incarnation, 3966 McKinney Avenue on Wednesday, June 23rd at 2pm. We are celebrating Paul’s life, not mourning our loss, therefore traditional black is not necessary.

    Paul experienced great success in the important areas of life. His sense of humor was another plus. The loss of such a man in the prime of life is difficult to weigh. My wife Leanne and I are very sorry for Paul’s passing.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
