Paul and I were friends at work and on the golf course. I remember making wonderful
trips with him down state in Kentucky for KGA events. I never knew a finer person or
a better gentleman.

Sorry to learn of Paul’s passing, 🙏

Paul was a friend and a client. Barmore Construction was one of the first clients of the newly opened Arthur Andersen Louisville Office.
Many fond memories as Paul and I attended Golf Digest Golf School together as well as 1981 Super Bowl in New Orleans.
Paul was an honorable Southern gentleman.

Paul and Shirlene were among the first people I remember meeting after moving to Anchorage in 1974. We lived just around the corner and would see them out walking. At some point they bought a new car and the dealer gave away a free wooden sided wagon with each sale. Our daughter was just the right age to love it and that wagon got lots of good use. Thank you for your thoughtfulness on that and so many occasions.
Years later Shirlene introduced us to the Governos at Valley View and horses and riding came into our lives in a big way with that connection.
Missing you both with the fondest of memories.

I think this photo of Paul is from about 1965 since that is when I went to live with Paul & Shirleene.
