The first time I met Paul was at a hole in the wall restaurant with our wives. Babby’s. Seems like food was always a part of our gatherings and why I always remember us eating. Always a lot of talk about family, life, business, politics and religion, things he, we, were passionate about. And Paul was never shy about telling you how he felt. His laugh was infectious. Sadly, we were getting ready to start doing the regular dinner thing again when Covid hit and I guess that ended it forever. I will truly miss you Paul. See you on the other side...

Paul wrote the below in remembrance of my dad, when he passed. I know if my dad was still alive, he would have been there for the funeral. So sorry for your loss. Barbara Hutchison.

“Bill Hutchison was mentor to me and I owe any business success that I have had, to what I learned from him! He always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. He will be missed! Much love to the Hutchison family! Heavens gain!

Paul was my neighbor. We had many talks. When he met Rhonda it changed his life. He was so happy and was able to blend their families. I’m sure he will forever be missed. So sorry Rhonda, Brandon, Brianne and all of the children and grandchildren. Heaven has another angel!

I was just a kid when you all lIved next door to my parents. Brandon was one of my best friends. One day while we were at school... Paul saved my dad's life! My dad, Kenny, was working on the car in the drive and the car had fallen off the jack and the car tire was pressing down on my dad. Paul, comes out his front door and sees what was happening and runs straight over and lifts, yes, literally just lifts the car off of him just enough and long enough my dad could roll out (the way my dad told it). So thankful you were our neighbors, for that and many more reasons. Praying blessings, strength and peace for the family today and the days ahead. 🙏❤️🙏

I have known Paul for many, many years, through my first husband, Jack Slaughter. He and Paul were best friends and called each other "Bu and Bur"....which stuck with them forever. Paul spoke so kindly at Jack's funeral 14 years ago. He was such a genuine, compassionate friend. And his voice was incredible. We used to go hear him sing "Journey" music, and then gospel. He was just a wonderful, talented, loving man. And he loved his family so much. I am so very sorry for your loss. Sending thoughts and prayers to Rhonda, Brianne, Brandon and all of his family to get through this difficult time. R.I.P. Paul...I'm sure you're singing with your Mom, Dad and the angels.

I will miss Paul so much, with his gentle spirit, sweet smile, and great sense of humor. And wow, such an amazing voice! He was so gifted musically, and always willing to help others bring a little more music into this world. I am grateful to have had Paul's laughter and light in my life.

With love and fond memories,

Theresa

We will miss having Paul at our family gatherings especially our annual family Thanksgiving. We will miss his smile and his personality. We will miss his mac and cheese and his helping hands prepare many meal additions with our sister, Rhonda. We will miss being able to hug him and to see the love on his face for Rhonda and family.

We will keep all of those and many other precious, loving memories to cherish forever.
Love and hugs to our brother,
Jeff and Sandy Flatt

To Paul's Family:

I was so very sorry to learn of Paul's passing. I had known Paul since 7th Grade. I remember when I had first heard him sing and and was so impressed with his great singing voice. He had told me last year that his band's first gig was in my parent's basement at our 8th Grade Core Class Christmas Party. And look at all of the music that he's made since that time! We had remained friends for many years after. Paul was a great person, hard worker and a friend to everyone. He was always so happy to see everyone and enjoyed their company. He was the real deal. I know that his family will truly miss him. What a blessing he was to all of us. I know that he will be singing in heaven forever.
