I'll never forget the time I took Paul hunting at my camp in Greenfield . I don't think he was'nt expecting to see anything ..when we got to the place were I saw them last,I let him go in front of me .I told him to get low to the ground.. Ten minutes later one blew at us.. he turn with that big smile on his face..it was priceless..then one crossed & he put up one finger, then another passed ..two fingers went up ,then three fingers went up...the road was very narrow so never got a shot ...he turns & looks at me and said ..Ok that was fun. let's go drink some beer. .Laugh ..We laughed all day...So I took him camp hopping. He saw people he hadn't see in years sence he worked for Roy Brothers delivering gas. We even sent Sandy a picture of someone else's deer to make her think we got one. I will miss that laugh & your smile..but I know that your at peace...love u Brother-in-law.

We remember playing Horse Shoes at Johnny and Theresa's summer outings. Paul was a great player and was always so happy, especially when he was on the winning team.

I was so sorry to learn of Paul's passing. My sincerest condolences go out to Sandy and the entire family during this most difficult time. I pray that this tight-knit family will help each other cope with their sorrow and loss. I was so fortunate to get to know Paul and also to work with him at the Old Town paper mill for many years. He was an exceptional man in many ways. He was happy and funny, two traits that most people can only dream of having! I know that he was the ultimate family man and a hard worker also. He was a good man who lived a good life, and I'm sure he's now in Heaven! I know that I am surely a better person from having known Paul, he left a good and lasting impression on me! May God bless his entire family.
