Paul and I became friends during our college days at SMU in the late 1970s. He was president of the Chess Club, and we spent many hours hanging out and playing chess and backgammon.
Over the years, we kept in touch; I last saw him shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic started. We went to Charlie’s Old-Fashioned Burgers in Farmersville for lunch and a couple of games of backgammon.
Paul was an unusual man who did not connect easily with others. Despite a lifetime of struggles, he was not the self-pitying kind; I never heard him complain, even when things were awful.
He had a great memory – he never forgot a birthday.
He loved chess and backgammon, and for years was a top-ranked air hockey player.
Above all, he was a decent man. He had a good heart. Though socially almost comically inept, he cared instinctively about how policies affected people, a trait that informed his political leanings. He liked and was kind to animals.
Rest in peace, my friend.
