Not sure what to say?

Can't imagine my life without you dad

Always enjoyed working with Paul and was always so proud and happy to refer him to clients. The absolute best in his field, he will be sorely missed. His passion, his wit and humor was always appreciated and welcomed. So sorry to his family for your loss.

Paul, in his government work and on his own, has helped the define the way that geological quality work is conceived and done, and the care with which it is explained. As his colleagues, we owe a debt to his family for allowing him to work with the integrity, honesty, and authentic interest which he brought to his work, and which will live on his professional world.

I had the great pleasure of working with Paul on several projects around the Bay Area. I so much appreciated his wisdom, his knowledge of the earth, and his commitment to doing good work. Even more, Paul was a delight to work with, full of fascinating stories, ideas, and good humor. My sympathies go to his family.

Paul was one of the most special wonderful men in our world. He was truly so well read and knowledgeble in not just his engineering/contracting fields but in every area concerning humankind. He was an expert in his field, and master teacher that made him stand out when he testified in court cases. Few people know may know that he loved teaching about the intricacies of soil engineering and foundation design. A small thing in the greater scope of his life but an example of the passion he had...

My husband and I and our fellow LaColina Rd neighbors owe him our gratitude. I will think of him as I look out over the open space and hills and be thankful for all the work he did to save them from development.

I was to meet Paul in the near future, and am deeply sad to know that he has passed. Currently, and in the past, his work has greatly served our local community (El Sobrante). I was looking forward to meeting and working with him.

My heart goes out to Paul's family and friends, and all the other people in his life. Please know that his contributions are deeply appreciated and that he will be greatly missed.

Dear Laura and Seidelman family,

Our hearts are heavy with the news of Paul. We are holding you close in prayer. After you have had a chance to help each other, please know we are standing by ready to help, as well.

And know that you are loved.
