Not sure what to say?

I remember seeing Uncle Paul in Kentucky at the house when Mom and I went down for the 4th of July, best time out on the porch with the guys, Uncle Paul, and Bobby years ago.

Or, everyone coming to Grandma's in Muncie for the 4th of July and everyone getting together.
Will be missed.

Happy Memories

Sharon and I so enjoyed our visit with Uncle Paul and Linda last summer. We spent all day sharing memories and listening to him tell stories I hadn't heard before. Speaking of memories, my children have one of him they will never forget. At Grandma Brock's 80th birthday party at my parents' house, Uncle Paul told a story of someone trying to kill a wasp nest on his front porch using a burning rag on the end of a stick. It was a hilarious story. And the punch line was that the fellow doing...

Sorry to hear this - what a great guy... Loved working with him. He did some good programming at Tecumseh for us. My heartfelt sympathies to Linda & family... With Love, Robert

I worked with Paul back in the 80's, he did some programming for the company I worked for. Paul was always the same, such a nice man. Prayers for his family.

Fondly remembering the happy times spent with Uncle Paul and family, including camping trips, while growing up and at reunions/family visits as an adult. Loved the visits to Eubank and fishing on Lake Cumberland. Sad to have missed the planned Spring trip to Florida, when we would have spent time catching up on life. My prayers are with you Uncle, the Adams family (cousins) and Aunt Louise. Geraldine and Paul are finally reunited with their mother Roma and the rest of their family in Heaven....

We Loved he and Ruth so Much and shared such precious Memories !!!

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was always a joy to be around and was ready to give good advice on growing things. A fine man and my 5th cousin.
