Sincerest condolences to Paul's Family.
I was fortunate and had the pleasure of working with Paul over the years and enjoyed every minute of it. He was a good guy. That term is often thrown around without much thought, but in Paul's case it was the best way to describe him. When I say good guy, to me, it means someone who is kind and considerate to others, puts family above all else, works hard and takes pride in what he does and was always fun to be around. Paul was all of these things and much more. A good guy who will be missed.

I will always have fond memories of my Uncle Paul. When I was a child he always had time to make me laugh and smile. I still remember when his brand new Pontiac Phoenix was about to be delivered to him and how excited he was to have a car of the future. When I was a little older he was always willing to help me with the problems I had with my less then modern cars. My thoughts and condolences to Paul’s immediate family. Jason Colville
