I met Paul when I was in my late teens dating his brother Harold. When Harold and I were dating we would stop by Paul and Mary's house in Hodgkins. One warm summer day Harold and stopped to see Paul, Mary and the kids. Paul loved cars and I can't remember which car he had then but I begged him to take me along the river where I knew he would let me see just what that car had under the hood. He did we had a blast. I married Harold in 1988. I was welcomed into the Gray family. When Paul left Chicago we all missed him. But anytime he called he was always happy to talk and always made me smile. I will miss you calling the house. But I promise you Paul that Harold and I will always be there for Paul and Lisa. Until we meet again in Paradise. I love you and will miss you. Liza Gray

I've known Paul for over twenty five years. We met when he was driving a tour bus. Paul's smile has always been his trade mark. He's always been willing to help to get any project done and he'd see that it was done right. He recently took two of my cars and went through them and made sure they both ran right.
If he wasn't working on cars, he was behind the wheel of a bus driving some one for a short tour. Paul is going to be missed, but I'm thankful I had the privilege of knowing him these many years. Rest in peace my dear brother.

The first time I met my Uncle Paul was when he drove Loretta Lynn’s bus to winter haven, Fl.
My mom and I met him there to have lunch and I was excited to meet him! He had an infectious smile from ear to ear and as my mom and him reminisced about there childhood and caught up on what they were doing at the present time , I saw so much love between them and I knew this was a sweet and special man! A man that loves God and understood the importance of family . We just didn’t have enough time together on this earth but we will spend eternity catching up in heaven! We love you and are thankful to know we will meet again around Gods throne.

Man, I loved Uncle Paul! He was quite the character & he was one of my role models! He called me “Knucklehead” when I was a little kid & he always left comments on my Facebook posts! Him & my dad, Frankie, are together again! Until we meet again Uncle Paul! I love you & I’ll see y’all again someday!

My favorite memory of my brother paul is when we were children in summer we would catch fireflies we would get mason jars poke hold in the tops
and chase them all over the yard
We had so much fun.
another thing about my brother
Paul was his beautiful smile no
matter how. bad he was feeling
He would always have you smiling
Before he left you.
I know your in heaven chasing
Chasing fireflies and smiling.
Thanks for the memories
Your sister judy baby.
