I did not know Paul very long, but felt an instant friendship the first time I met him. I cherished the times I spent going out and having good times with him and Kim and will never forget this loving human being.

We were brought up in a family that had its roots in poverty and struggle. My parents tried to provide a solid Christian home and built our own houses to be able to provide better for us. We would watch TV as a family, one program we watched was “Petticoat Junction” and Paul just loved the opening song, add to this the fact that Paul was the family clown. Remember dad was laying concrete blocks after work one afternoon, mom, Paul and I were there, and Paul was on top of the picnic table signing the tune to Petticoat Junction but changed Junction to “Junkyard” and would do a little dance to the song as he belted it out as fast and hard as he could. Poor dad, just couldn’t take it anymore, had a some mortar on his trowel and flipped it in Paul’s direction, right when his mouth was open singing, hitting his “piehole”, was a surprise to all, and we all laughed about that for decades to come. Heaven better be ready for our family clown, he was an entertaining “little guy” for sure.

Paul was the youngest in our family and mom always referred to him as “little guy” until the day she died. After she passed, decided would continue her name for Paul, the funny thing is, there was nothing little about Paul, he was almost 6’2”. I know when she saw him in heaven, the first thing she did is put a big smile on her face and exclaimed, “LITTLE GUY” … know mom and dad was glad to see him, some day we will all be together again, a big family reunion, until then, “Little Guy”!
