Paul William Matthews

Paul was a longtime friend and a great supporter. He made a tremendous contribution to good government through all his political efforts. I admired him greatly and will miss him very much.

He defined 'friend;'. Will remember for his loyalty, spark and as a first-rate fellow. Always so proud of his family. He will be missed by all placed in his path.

Paul was interested in everyone. His warm welcoming smile and gentle ways modeled civility and decency. He did indeed have an uncanny ability to recall details about the lives of others and conversations long ago passed. His interest in us defined what friendship and fellowship is and can be. He truly “never met a stranger.” I had the pleasure of visiting with him shortly before his passing and will remember his kind and thoughtful inquiries as to the health and well-being of my family when he had much to be concerned with himself - but that was Paul. As others have said, he was a gentleman. I admire his tenacity, curiosity and confidence. I don't think Paul Matthews was afraid to discuss or share an opinion on any topic with any person in private or in public. His resolve provided inspiration to introverts such as me. His family of course will miss him, as shall we, his many, many friends.

In an age when the world 'gentleman' has little meaning, Paul was a Gentleman in its true sense. That I always will remember.
