Paul Tiesse

Paul Tiesse was born in 1954 in Wenatchee, Washington. His family moved to Spokane in 1958 and owned a local grocery until 1984. With the exception of his infancy and college years at Washington State University (1972-76), Tiesse has resided in Spokane. He thus provides valuable perspective on growing up in Spokane in the 1960s-70s, his Catholic faith, and some of the variations within the Spokane community.
