My sincerest condolences to Paul's family and friends. I have known Paul for 35 years. We were friends and roommates in college who had many great adventures. One of his greatest joys was music. As he would say "You know, REAL music...Blues and Rock n'Roll!" One particular time, we drove from Hartford to New Haven to see the famous 60's band Steppenwolf. After the show he just says "Come on, lets go say hi to John". I said, "What!" He repeated, "Come on, lets go say hi to John". I went along thinking he was nuts. We walked nonchalantly past security and into the green room where the band founder/leader John Kay was relaxing. Paul introduced himself and me. John said hi, gave us each a beverage and we talked for a little while about music and other things. We then said thanks, goodnight and left. That was Paul for you.

I have worked with Paul for over 20 years. He will be missed dearly by so many of us at work. Paul was one of the people that always greeted you with a smile, joke or funny story. He was always willing to help out and to be a valued part of teams (along with, of course, his welcomed opinions).

He was also a friend outside of work, again with his infectious smile and stories, laughs and observations.

Paul was a good man, honest and caring. That’s a pretty great resume.

My love to Oxana, Ryan, Leah, Lana, Paul’s Family, Chris and Many Friends
