And when Thyself with shining Foot shall pass
Among the Guests Star-scatter'd on the Grass,
And in They joyous Errand reach the Spot
Where I made one - turn down an empty Glass!
(Rubaiyat LXXV, O. Kayyam)
Family, Friends and the many who Paul embraced, benefited and collaborated with remember his passion for practical acts of kindness and utility, his excitement for sports of land, sea and air, his dedication to his patients over decades of practice as a physician, his unwavering support for his children and fondness for his family, his vision as a man of business, community organizer, teacher, philanthropist and lifelong learner.
Master of so many trades, fields of knowledge and activity, he shared his vigor, warmth and wonder continuously. Recent and significant engagement includes his leadership roles in TOCATTA (Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus) and Space Science for Schools.
He inspired us: he showed us how bright and constant one life can be!
