After so many years of working in Paul's building on Oak St., Paul and Ruth (and Joan) felt like family. We enjoyed our coffee hours together and the many conversations as we passed through the front door. I always got a kick out of Paul saying "Shall we take a work break now?" so I knew coffee hour was over or we were gabbing long enough. Paul had a great sense of humor and was youthful in so many ways...whether he be riding in his red Corvette or on his bike. He was such a warm person with a smile that lit up a room. I also appreciated his wit and sarcasm. Will miss seeing him in the picture window in his office on Oak Street and all the good times we shared. My heartfelt condolences to Ruth, Pam and David and their families.

I thought the world of this man. He was no doubt the nicest man I've ever met. He always had a big smile and a huge hug every time I saw him. He loved my children like his very own. The world needs more people like Paul. He will be greatly missed by so many including myself. My prayers go out to the family and all his friends. May God bring you peace and comfort during these trying times.
