26 years ago working at Pizza Hut is where Paul came into my life, and became a big brother figure in my life.He has been with me throughout so many milestones in my life. He was there when Matt andI were married, he was there for the birth of my children, and he’s my son Noah’s god father.
Most recent he was there for us when Noah and Katiana had their accident that left Noah in a wheelchair.He was always there for us. I love him like a big brother,and will love him always.He will always be in heart Rest In Peace Paul. Love you always and forever.

Knowing him as I did, I think this is what he would say.
Paul's Wish
I am a simple man, you see
so I have just a short wish -
Bless my family, keep them safe
Please give me a good day to go fish!

Paul - go find that big lake or mountain stream in Heaven.
Sincerely, F-I-L (Father-In-Law), Steve
