He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of the First Church of God and served his country proudly during the Vietnam War in the Army. He retired from CSX Railroad (formerly Baltimore & Ohio Railroad) after 38 years of dedicated service. Paul was a wonderful father, dedicated grandfather, and was a classic car enthusiast. He was also an active member of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way union for employees who built and maintained the tracks, bridges, buildings and other structures on the railroads of the United States and helped fight for better accommodations for his fellow workers while on the job site. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, George Acree, Frank Acree and David Acree; sisters, Christine Pickett, Katherine Kemp and Noami Leavelle.

He is survived by his sons, Josh (Leighann Mitchell), Jason (Destiny) Acree, Bradley (Molly) Acree, and Adam (Rachael) Acree; grandchildren Gavin Hurley, Noah Acree, and Shealynn Acree; step-grandchildren Kurt Austin and Jordan Cone; sisters Rose Mae Pruitt and Mary Lou Derrick. Plus, a host of other relatives and friends.

The family has suggested that expressions of sympathy be donations to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. These can be made at Foster-Toler-Curry Funeral Home.
