Bruce and family,

Although I only met Paul once at Bruce and Sue's house, it was clear how much he loved his family. I remember that day being a lot of fun. I can only image there were many days like that when Bruce was growing up.


I know he will be missed, so very sorry for your loss. Rest in peace.

Best wishes,
The Boone Family

I did not meet Paul Kocsis, but after reading the story of your father's life he clearly was a great family man. He did his job well and passed that love of family down.

I know he will be missed, so very sorry for your loss.

Sincerely,

Paul's quiet presence at our family gatherings was a comfort and source of solitude for all present. The smile on his face and obvious enjoyment of life was such a gift to our family every time that he visited us in Connecticut. Paul, we love you and will miss your quiet confidence, even though you were a Buffalo fan.
