Paul Dennis Nystedt

December 27, 1942 — September 16, 2023


Paul Dennis Nystedt, a beloved member of the community, passed away on September 16, 2023, in Aiken, South Carolina. He was born on December 27, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois, to his parents Gunnar Nystedt and Evelyn (Olson) Nystedt. Paul leaves behind cherished memories and a legacy that will live on in the hearts of his loved ones.

Graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University, Paul's thirst for knowledge led him to pursue an MBA from Xavier University. During his time at Purdue, Paul became a proud member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity where he formed lasting friendships.

Paul dedicated his entire career as a Chemical Engineer to Monsanto. He began his early career in Springfield, Massachusetts before later relocating to Cincinnati, Ohio. His passion for engineering and commitment to his work served as an inspiration to many colleagues and aspiring professionals in the field.

Beyond his professional achievements, Paul was a devoted family man. His loved ones remember him as a kindhearted and generous soul who always put others first. He and his life partner Karen Knapp lived in Aiken.

Paul was also a loving father to his two sons. His son Daniel currently resides in Taipei, Taiwan while Stephen lives with his wife Tonja in Chicago, Illinois. Stephen and Tonja gifted Paul with two beautiful grandsons: Gunnar and Maddox.

Paul will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His warm smile, gentle nature, and unwavering support will forever be treasured. While our hearts ache with sorrow at his passing, we find solace in celebrating his remarkable life.
