Once a person heard Paul's voice, it would never be forgotten. We can still hear it in our minds. He was truly the people's friend in El Paso - an advocate for "right and people's rights." He was an encourager - a proud man - yes, a giant of a man, and a tremendous human being. God's blessings on you!

I got to meet Paul thanks to a mutual friend who worked with him at Bowie. He was one of the most down-to-earth gentlemen I have met. He loved his students and made sure they were safe and cherished and encouraged. Being an educator, he was an inspiration to me and I know, to other educators as well. He never let down the students or his teachers. He worried about and cared for us and always spoke up for us.

To the Strelzin family, as deep as El Paso's loss is your family has lost a father and grandfather who was dear to you. My deepest condolences to you all. Thank you for sharing him these many years with the rest of us!

My condolences to his entire family. I met him at H.E. Charles Elementary and he told me to never forget who I was, where I came from & with my smile I would conquer the world!! Every time I had to speak in public or felt nervous about meeting someone I would remember his words & smile.. I felt so empowered from that moment on, sometimes we don't realize how powerful our words are to a child and that is something I have cherished through out my life. I thank you for blessing me with your kind words and laughter.

Still so hard to believe that The Strelz is gone, but what a joy to have known him. I met Paul when I was an off-ice official for the Buzzards in 1999 and we hit it off as two "northeast transplants" to the Sun City. I am so honored to have had the chance to work with him at Buzzards games for a few years, and always enjoyed running into him around town and at the station. He was one of a kind and even though I am long gone from El Paso, the memories don't fade. My deepest condolences to the Strelzin family at this time.

I am so very proud to say that I worked as an usher at the Miners basketball games for 20 years during the 70s & 80s and was able to experience "The Strelz" in person. It was an experience I will never forget. But I just found out that my 35 year old Daughter"s math teacher in middle school was "The Strelz". My daughter has had a job in accounting for the past 15 years. I never knew how or when she decided she loved math until I talked to her the other day about "The Strelz" passing away. Currently she lives in Cloudcroft and did not hear the news. She explained to me that Mr. Paul (as she was given permission by him to call address him like that) saw her abilities in math and challenged her to learn more. He made a big difference in her life and I just wanted his family to know he touched so many lives in so many ways. He was a generous soul & our prayers are with you at this time of your loss.
