I had the pleasure of working with Paul at the City of Redondo Beach during the development of the Galleria at South Bay regional mall. He was head of planning and I was economic development coordinator. He was a consummate professional and good to work with. An exciting time for both of us.

Sincere condolences to Paul's wife and family. May he rest in eternal peace.
