Not sure what to say?

Dear Chris,
We are so very sorry for your loss and wish you comfort in the days ahead. Just want you to know we are thinking of you. The Linsenmeyer Family

I worked with Karen at Lakewood Court. She told Paul about my twins who played the trumpet and got into the jazz band starting in junior high school. Paul bought them tickets to see the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra and we all went. After Karen retired, my wife and I would race to Danny Boy's after work on Friday's to talk to them. They glowed when they talked about you all.
I'm very sorry for your loss.

Chris, Gary, Taylor and Tucker, we are saddened by your loss and will keep you in our prayers. You have delivered a beautiful tribute to Paul. We have had the pleasure of meeting Paul on the sidelines of Cleveland sports events and working with his wonderful images. Paul was a rare person and we are all better for having him in our lives.


Paul Tepley lives on in the pages of his brilliant photo history of the Cleveland Browns. In the preface he wrote "It is my hope that the photos in this book --Cleveland's Browns-- will bring back a lot of memories of the people and the events that make up the history of the Cleveland Browns."

Paul, you did that so very well. And as we look at those photos we also have very fond memories of the thoughtful, friendly man who took all those great pictures, and...

Rest In Peace Paul, the world was made better with your presence. Thank you for all of your wonderful one of a kind photographs and all of the hard work with The Cleveland West Road Runners Club.

In a craft that is known for its shortfall
of modesty, Paul stood out as one of the few who let his work speak for him. And it sure did. Besides being a superb photographer, he was gentle,unflappable and a source of good suggestions for the other parts of the paper. He was respected always. He shall be remembered.
