I was a classmate of Paul at Montgomery Catholic High School in the middle 1950's and have fond memories of him. I'm sorry to hear of his death. He was so bright and for a time was my chemistry partner.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of Paul. I met him when working at Our Lady of the Lake. He was always so nice and I enjoyed getting to know him. If I remember correctly, I met him in the early 90's while working in the Purchasing Dept. God bless.

I met Mr. You and Mrs. Tibbets here in Greenville, SC when I was doing a talk for the
"Early-stage support group" for the SC Alzheimer's Association. I told him that I had a picture of me and his father on the shelf in my office - which is still there today. I had taken that shortly after reading "Duty" by Bob Greene who, along with many considered him the "Man Who Won the War."I enjoyed meeting both Paul and his father and am saddened at his loss. Serving as a member of the SC Alzheimer's Association, I hope that we can one day find a cure for this disease. Blessings to this family.

I went to high school with Paul, at Montgomery Catholic High. His Mother Lucy and my Mother were good friends. Paul was always such a sweet and sincere person.
I told my family he got me through chemistry class. He was my lab partner and always answered my questions better than the teacher.
My most sincere condolences to his family. I know you will miss him always.
