I had the pleasure of working with Paul at the Red Cross. Paul was a very caring and selfless man, always doing for others. He was a wonderful volunteer. He loved his family and lived his faith. He will be sorely missed. The world is a better place because of his presence and service. R. I. P. friend...

We never want to say goodbye, Paul endured much in these last few years he’s been blessed with a homecoming now. I know my parents appreciated his gifts of service in his EMT Field in their last years. I pray for all to have peace in this time of uncertainty
