Paul was such a lovely neighbor. He was a such a fixture on our street. We always enjoyed when he and Chris welcomed us to walk through their studio and let the kids create fun art projects. He will he missed.

Paul was a wonderful person. He lived life so fully and certainly painted with his whole being. Was also a great cook. Loved eating with Paul and Chris. Had great conversations. Will miss you, Paul. Sending all my support to Chris.

My father introduced me to Paul Gorka decades ago, and I would stop to see him occasionally to look at his gallery of paintings. He was a very talented artist and a good, strong-willed man. Paul being gone is a great loss. I will miss him being in the world.

Please accept my condolences . I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one. May the word of God comfort and strengthen you. 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17
