Paul was the nicest guy around. He was great to work with. We always made a busy day at work one filled with humour . He had great stories to tell. He was a friend to many. He would always ask how I was holding up in my neighborhood. It was great talking to a friend. He would do his best to ensure what needed to be done. A very helpful person if one needed help. I'll miss our work laughs and stories. He truly brightened up the work place. He will be missed by many.

Big Paul always had his heart in the right place and was always happy to help. We'd often see each other in passing around the elevators at work and you'd always show that big grin and I'd hear your hearty 'Hey Midge!' I'm glad we were friends. Be at peace.
