Mr. Paul has been an influential male figure in my young life. He was always cracking jokes with me and I always found him to be a fun and intriguing person. Many nights when I was over Aunt Barbara’s house suppose to be doing homework, I would find some excuse to go out in the shed where Mr. Paul was to bug him about whatever contraption he was creating. And he would always go into detail explaining it to me. He was a kind and enjoyable person to be around & I will truly miss him. I am thankful to have had him in my life.

It’s been so many years since I last saw Paul. I met him when we were teenagers in New York City during the 1970’s. So much about Paul is memorable. He was kind, creative, thoughtful and always positive...And yes, he could dance. He danced as though he invented it. Paul was my Hustle partner a few times and he made it seem effortless. He had a great sense of style and a wonderful sense of self. I know that the world was a better place because he was in it. My condolences to his family and friends. May he rest beautifully…

I consider my brother, Pablo, to have been the most exceptional person I ever knew. He was considerate and loving to his family. I am grief stricken that he has had to leave this world. We will see him on the other side. Love to his wife, Barbara, and his children and grandchildren. ❤️

Paul would call me out of the blue sometimes when I was thinking about him. He was and is a true friend. I was mad because I wanted to know him longer in this life and so I cried and I said " I know your laughing at me now and I know you don't have any more pain but I wont ever forget you and I will see you again and I'm still gonna talk to you. " I don't think Paul ever met a stranger. So hello and goodbye Paul. God bless you and your family . Barbara thank you for keeping me informed and thank you for loving and taking care of Paul I know he thought the world of you.
