My good and true friend, I can still recall the day we met in 1967. I still swear you had sideburns even back then. I am honored and humbled to have grown up with you as my friend. All those experiences we shared made us the adults we became. You were always seeking peace even then. You spread it wherever you went with whomever you met. That will be your undying legacy, because what you shared with others will be shared again and again.

As a sailor when others depart we never say "goodbye". We always say; "See you in the next port". So brother of mine, save us all a spot in the sunshine and we'll see you in the next port.

I will miss your Morning Stories during our slow days at work. You shared your passion of your Family Lineage, your two lovely Cats, all the places you have traveled to, and most of all, your unconditional love for your wife & Kids! Thank you for all the memories and knowledge you shared with me! I will miss you dearly! May you Rest in Paradise!

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. I remember his voice and how defusing it was whenever I had to call the Service Desk, it was so calming and he had endless patience when helping users. I can still hear it and it makes me smile. He is up there now still helping those who need it. Remembering you and your loved ones today and always.

Paul had the most calming, upbeat voice when dealing with stress out tech neophytes. He walked me and many others back back off the ledge as he methodically solved out problems. He lived live with gratitude as his default setting. RIP my friend

I had the privilege of knowing and working with Paul for many years. He stood out because of his humanity and humility. While he was good at what he did technically, what set him apart was his authenticity and genuine concern for others. Paul was thoughtful and kind, intelligent and compassionate. I hope hes resting peacefully and wish the best to his family. What a void hes left.

The Earth has lost one of its brightest, kindest souls.
Paul was a fellow employee along side me at Univar for many years. Through that time I dont think I ever saw him without a smile and he never hesitated to say something warmly positive.
May the Lord bless Paul. He will be missed.

Paul was a special person in so many ways. I learned many lessons from him, most recently expressed by this quote Apparently I (Paul) am pretty much the favorite patient ... Because I stay polite and funny no matter how bad I feel. I have always felt that you choose how to respond. If you were rude, you choose to be rude, nobody made you be rude. This was true at work as well and I had the privilege of working along side Paul for so many years. May his bike rides and walks chasing Pokémon in heaven be plentiful!

I worked with Paul for many years and he was a kindred spirit. Always had a kind word and such a calming presence. He will be missed by his work family at Univar Solutions. Rest In Peace, Paul and thank you for all you did to help others.

Nobody at Univar will ever forget Pauls calming voice and endless patience when helping users. He was one of the nicest people Ive ever worked with, and I will always think of him on September 4th, because we were hired the same day and shared the anniversary. I am going to miss him, but I will always be able to hear his voice saying, hey Jules. Rest peacefully, my friend. - Jules

I've known Paul as a friend and co-worker for many years. I enjoyed his way of looking at life and never-ending willingness to help. I never saw him angry, upset or frustrated at anyone. He is a kind and gentle soul.
