Paul Giradin was, through and through, a good and descent man.
I had the pleasure and privilege to work with him for many years when we worked at Tri County Mental Health Services in Lewiston.
He brought his energy, goodness, caring, devotion and diligence to work every day.
There was very little that he couldn't do, even if he had never done it before.
I learned a lot from Paul about how to be and behave in the world. He taught me patience, kindness, right from wrong, good from not-so-good and how to smile with warmth and sincerity.
May the pain of his loss soon be replaced by our sweet memories of him.
My deepest sympathy to his family at Paul's passing ,

I was saddened to see that Paul has passed. I worked with Paul for many years at Tri-County Mental Health Services. He was a very caring and sensitive man. Paul was a hard worker and took much pride in everything he did. I have very fond memories of him. My deepest condolences to the entire Girardin family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Girardin Family~ I want to share my deepest condolences for the loss of your Dad. I first met Paul when he came to work at Tri County. We actually shared an office, and that was the beginning of a great working friendship. I had the privilege of going to a car show and saw Paul win first prize for his beautiful vehicle! Paul was a very hard worker, and earned a lot of respect from coworkers.
He used to borrow keys from me and forget to return them, for which I would give him a hard time, so he bought me a key ring. It has the first letter of my first name. I will never forget him. Prayers and hugs to all.
Fondly, Yvette Pouzol
