Mr. Dawley quickly became my favorite teacher when I started his Cabinetmaking program at Sierra. He was always very serious about teaching woodworking. He was very forthcoming with information and expected you to learn it. I am very grateful for the wisdom he bestowed on me. On the other side of Mr. Dawley he bestowed a lot of jokes and fun too. He used to say, when he saw a students work that wasn't quite up to his standards, "Oh I guess we can just paint it Green" Another saying of his was "Heavier than a dead Hippy" Usually staring at me when he said it. I'm sure he would get a laugh at how little hair I have now compared to back then. He could certainly eat his share of the Pizza and drink his share of the Beer. I miss those days. Rest In Peace Mr. Dawley. Your Jokes and Wisdom will live on for a long time.

Paul "Dynamite" Dawley was like a solar clock. He never quit ticking. Paul and I are frat brothers (Delta Psi Delta) from Chico State. He was also our "house mother" to meet the college requirement of have a responsible, over 21, adult as an overseer. I always thought that to be humorous...like having a wolf watch over a pack of wolves. We worked together on adding a dining hall to the frat house on Chestnut street. He was also our cook (and a good one). One night he served our dinner (steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc.) in the dish pan. He said, "If you are going to eat like pigs, I'm going to serve you like pigs." It didn't change the behavior one bit. You had to be careful "spearing" your steak out of the pan for fear one of the brothers would stab you in the hand with his fork. He was also a first class tumbler on the Chico State Tumbling Team.
I reconnected with Paul in 1969 when I was at Sierra College interviewing for a Dean's job. Paul gave me some inside tips that were most beneficial. After I was through, we went to the Robin Club in Rocklin and had pitcher of beer, or was it two...maybe three, while we reminisced our college days. I got the job but rarely ran into Paul. He always had something "ticking" and was on the go.
He was respected as a person and professional and a lot of fun as well. I loved the way he laughed. Paul will be missed and I'm saddened I didn't make more of an effort to reconnect in our retirement. He will not be forgotten. My condolences to his family and friends. I tried to make the event at the restaurant but didn't hear of his passing but two days before it was to take place. Had I been able to make it the above is what I would have shared.
Respectfully, Don Brophy

I am very sad to hear about the passing of Mr. Dawley, he was the dad of one of my friends since 6th grade. He was a great role model for me in many ways, a loving, caring dad and a great teacher. I worked with him a Dennis one summer finishing a house his class had built and learned many things from him. Rest in peace Mr. Dawley.

What a character!! I remember he always offered to drive Dennis and I to the movies in Roseville (Crest Theatre)I felt bad because he would wait for us,and be parked at the curb,happy as a clam,cracking jokes.I said to Dennis,"your Dad is so nice to wait for us" He commented, he goes to the bar down the street!! wonderful man!!
