Paul enjoyed being outdoors, working on the gardens at his camphouse, hunting, fishing, and sitting in his favorite spot with a good cigar, watching the weather and talking with friends. He loved sunny days and cruising around with the top down, but also loved getting to see it snow, especially on visits to see his family in East Tennessee, where he enjoyed going to his favorite flea markets and riding around the countryside. Paul was also very proud of his annual Christmas light display. Most of all, he will always be remembered for his big heart, his generosity and his willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need.
