Though we had lost contact for many years, I will always remember summers and fishing trips in Long Island.He taught me how to fish and though I haven't done it in numerous years as the saying goes,if you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime... Rest Easy and say hi to"Sam" (Maryanne , my Mom) for me....

I am deeply saddened for the loss of a dear friend. To Richard and family, my heart-felt condolences for your loss. Paul was a unique individual with a heart of gold. I talked to him daily for over 10 years sharing stories, advice and pictures. To Niko, his best friend, I hope you find a family that will love you as much as Paul did.
