I will miss you my friend. You were always there for me and helped me through some tough times. I was so saddened to hear about your passing...I still cannot believe it. Know that your Savannah family loves and misses you and hopefully you are at peace now.

I will always remember Paul's laughing,smiling eyes!! He was the outspoken, life and soul,helping me with the crossword puzzle!! Being from Ireland i just didnt understand the football,and Paul.did try and explain it, but i didnt need to ask if his team did something good or bad....there would be an absolute roar,usually on my left, and i just knew if the eyes were smiling it was good!! Then he'd look down and say 3 across is... grits...❤ so softly i could barely hear him!! I'm sure his passing will have left a large hole in the family. He was such a personality and will be greatly missed by anyone that spent time in his company. Rest in peace Paul. We miss you

When I moved back to Savannah at 21 broke and broken hearted, Paul, who was living with my mother at the time, opened up his home to me no questions asked. When I was feeling low and down on myself he would lift me up and almost always our conversations would end with laughter. It’s been years since we last spoke, but the older we get, the more we realize the impact people from our past have made on our lives, and I wish I had the chance to thank him and say goodbye. After suffering the loss of a sibling a few years ago, I understand there is nothing I can do to ease the pain of such a tragedy, but to his family and loved ones, my heart sincerely goes out to all of you.

We met Paul (and the Beef’s gang) 10 years ago at Beef O’Bradys. We had many laughs with him. Fishing off our tiny deck one Easter, watching him play his drum as Jim’s rhythm section, always interesting current event conversations. We moved in 2009, but came back a year ago. When we saw Paul, it was like we never left. It was great to relive memories with him. We’re so sorry to hear that he passed. His huge personality will be missed.

When i think about paul i remember all my greatest memories from beefs. I think i knew him all my ten years working there. He would always greet me with what up money, and he always wanted to buy me a drink even though i got them for free. Im sad to see you go but happy our lives crossed paths. Rest in peace Paul the mayor of Beef O Bradys Wilmington Island

I am so sorry for your loss. I still can't believe he is gone. Paul and I met here in Savannah at the infamous Beef O'Brady's. Little did we know that our little group of friends we made at Beef's would become so important in our lives - even to this day. If Beef's was a community (and it was) Paul would have been the mayor. Your dad and I were together for 4 years and he came into my life at a time when I really needed a friend and a protector. He turned out to be both for me. We had great fun and met some amazing people. I will always remember the good in your father, and the love I felt for him and from him. And I hope you do as well. He was so proud of you boys. Memories will keep him alive for years to come. God bless all those who loved him. I will keep you in my prayers.
