I was sorry to hear the news of Paul's passing. I had the pleasure to meet Paul and work with him on a few projects. He did a site visit to Teknetix a few years ago. He was a great person, very honest and respectful.

Terribly sad news. I recruited Paul to Exide in Leland as Quality Manager. He was talented for sure but also a great and fun Team mate. My deepest condolences to his beloved family, friends and colleagues. A true loss and much too young of age.

I first had the pleasure to meet Paul in 2007 at Eaton. Paul was always a wealth of knowledge and a great problem solver. His talent and more importantly his friendship will be missed. Rest now as your work on earth is done.

I enjoyed working with Paul several different times over the years while he and I were working at Exide in the 1990's and even a short time at Eaton in 2010. He was a good and hardworking man - my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
