I personally know Paul as a friend and fellow NYSEG employee. Paul was a good family man and dedicated Christain. I believe he has a special place in Heaven. I went to many Bison games with him. We especially enjoyed the pregame picnics. I will dearly miss him and the stories he told. Paul loved his family.

Praying for all the family during this time of loss. I pray God's grace will sustain you as you celebrate the life of someone so dear but also as you let him go. I am blessed to be friends with his granddaughter Molly. She has shared so many stories of her beloved grandfather, Papa Schaef. It is endearing to know the last words she knows he said was, GO TIGERS, with a smile on his face. I know he is so proud of his Molly and can now watch over her from above.

Although we don't know Paul or any other family members, we are friends with Molly. We think the world of her and know that she has a wonderful, loving close family. Our hearts go out to the family and know you are in our prayers. From Molly we learned what a wonderful man Paul, her grandfather, was. We are blessed to know her and want you to know we are thinking of you this day. Blessings to all of you.

My wife and I ran an electrical contracting business in the Arcade area. Paul was one of our suppliers and consultants. He stopped by our home many times when in the area. His stories, jokes and friendship was always something we looked forward to. Linda and I will always remember him with fondness and love.
You're going to be missed friend.
