Paul became a part of our family, when our father relocated from Memphis to Indianapolis; with Navistar in 1991.

He didn't know anyone at the plant, until he met Paul.
Their couldn't have been a better person to become friends with, being in a new city. Paul helped take care of him, and acclimate to living in a new city.

Paul exemplified Proverbs 18:24 "A man that has friends must show himself friendly."

Paul was always so friendly and become a lifelong friend to my father and our family.

We extend our prayers to the family, as we reflect on the Christian life Paul lived daily.

Comforted in knowing that, Paul has arrived in a land where there is no more pain. Revelations 21:4

Samantha (Chris) Dawalt, as an extension of Paul you will always be a part of our family.

Love Always

Greg and I have known Paul for 30 years and have always enjoyed our visits with him. He was so kind and a very humble man. We liked to hear his stories of the things he had made. He made the iron fence around his house. He was very talented. He was always concerned about others and took an interest in getting to know you. He will be missed. We rejoice in knowing he is no longer in pain and with the Lord and one day we will see him again.

Paul was truly a thoughtful, kind, hard-working man. He crafted a 1969 Chevelle on a pedestal for me knowing the fondness that my husband and I had for old muscle cars. What a treasure heaven has received! May his family find comfort in knowing that he was admired by many. God bless you all.
