I am looking for Paul Ferski. I have a hand made chapel he made in Feb-1960. It was at St. Stans Church in the thrift shop. His card is on the bottom of it and it said he owned a printing shop in Muskigan, Michigan on 7th St. I bought it in Michigan City, Indiana and I live in Show Low, Arizona. Is he the person in the obit as a surviving son????
