Paul exchanged congregations with Scottish pastors on four occasions and was invited to preach on a mission to a Presbyterian congregation in Indiatuba, Brazil. There was rarely a day when Paul did not sing or laugh. A Memorial Service will be held on July 27, 2019, at 3 p.m. in the Presbyterian Church of Sewickley on Grant Street. Memorial gifts may be given to the Sherwood Oaks Scholarship Fund or Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Student Aid Fund. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the NOLL FUNERAL HOME, INC., 333 Third Street, Beaver, PA 15009.
