I knew of Paul at Roosevelt H.S when he was a senior and I was a sophomore. Recently, I actually met him and worked with him a few years on the Roosevelt HS Hall of Fame. We had a lot in common as former Teddies and retired officers. He was a kind man, willing to carry his share of the load. I'll miss him, and wish Beverly and her family peace and joy in his passing, knowing that he will have eternal life with Jesus. He was a solid citizen and a great model for others to follow. R.I.P Paul.

I remember Paul from my days at Roosevelt High School. We shared a year together on the swimming team ('57) and then later some intermural swimming competition at the U of M. He and my brother (Jerry) were really good friends right up to the present . They were in the same high school class. Paul was a great guy. I am proud to have known him . Doug Butler
