Paul began his career in the funeral services prior to graduating high school in 1961. It did not take long for him to figure out what he wanted to pursue as a career. His first mentor was his father, who told him, "You couldn't do anything better than to help a family in a time of need."
Paul attended the Kentucky School of Mortuary, while working through college at the Kentucky Baptist Hospital. Upon receiving his funeral service license in 1968, Paul joined the Dignity Memorial® family. In 1994, Paul relocated to Orange Park. Paul lives in Clay County with his wife of 30 years, Mary Altman. Together they have 6 children and 18 grandchildren—and counting.
