I have the fondest memories of Paul as my childhood neighbor in Largo, Florida. Paul was friends with my parents and often came over to watch the news with my dad. They both shared a history of past naval days. Paul was always funny and would light up the room. He loved my mom's chocolate chip cookies. He'd come over and ask if she had any for him. I grew up playing with Paul's youngest daughter Linda. The entire family brings fond memories for me. I am sorry for your loss. I know Paul will be greatly missed.

Paul and Beverly are two of the greatest friends I have ever had in my life. I have known them for a number of years and I cherish our friendship. I have traveled with them, stayed in their home and depended on them in my time of need. I feel blessed that they are a part of my life and I am truly thankful for the wonderful memories.

I had the pleasure of knowing Paul through my work in the Neutron Devices Dept. at General Electric. He was a friend to everyone. He and his wife Beverly were a wonderful couple. He'll be sorely missed by many of us at GE.

I had the honor and privilege of meeting Paul approximately 17 years ago when I married his nephew, Johnnie (John Haeger, Jr.). Paul always had a big smile whenever we got together with him and Beverly. They were so well suited for each other and their love for each other was very apparent. The world was a much better and brighter place because of him. He will be missed by his family and friends, but heaven has gained a very special angel. Love to his wife at this time of sorrow, but know that Paul will always be around you in spirit.

Love, John and Judy.
