RIP Paul, you will be greatly missed by all! You made the world a better place just for being in it. It was fun hanging out with you over the years. Thanks for always making me smile and also for all the laughs we had together! Keeping all his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers. Proverbs 27:9

Such a sweet gentleman, kind and fun. I remember the gold car he drove in high school. All the fun at Longview Lake. Just an all around good human. RIP friend.

Hey brother, sad to hear you have moved on. Best of luck to you. Any prayers for those left behind. I won't forget the fun times we had in the old green Valiant. I wish I still had the gold and black zippo lighter you kept letting me steal. It changed hands from yours to mine many times. Been cool to have given it back one more time....
