On Thursday, August 20 we had our first day of filming with Outsider Video & Motion. My dad Bill, my uncles Jon and Bob, and my aunt Paulette were all interviewed about their father—Paul Leimkuehler. They spent the entire day sharing stories of growing up and the impact he had on the skiing and prosthetic and orthotic field.
The film crew from Columbus, Ohio included owners and creative directors, Victor Matkovic and Andy Emery, and producer Brian Polk, who spent the day in Cleveland capturing stories about my grandfather.
The one common theme I recognized from a day filled of interviews was that Paul Leimkuehler was a fighter and never gave up on anything he did. He saw the best in every situation and learned how to make the most all the challenges that came his way. He was a man who never settled and always strived to do more and be more with his business, family and volunteering. (Click to Tweet!)
