Hi Paulie. Sorry, I know you hate that but it always did make you laugh anyway. Last I saw you was maybe 6 or 7 years ago riding your bike home from work in a pouring rain so I pulled over and made you let me drive you the rest of the way. Funny you didn't want to but I made you. I get it. Hadn't seen you in quite a few years but that 15 or 20 minutes was like no time had passed at all. We talked and laughed about the old days. Might have cried just a little too. You were Paulie, the Prince of Mischief, all over again. I will miss you my friend and classmate.

Thoughts on Paul Bielunis:

I cannot think of ANYONE who was 'like' Paul!

A true ONE OF A KIND!

Years ago while reading about Mt. Everest, a story was told about an Australian who summitted the peak without the help of Sherpa's, or oxygen...or any of the other necessary protocols to reach it. He simply hiked to the top, turned around and hiked down. THATS as close a person I can think of to match Paul. Paul could have done THAT!
He ran with a tireless long stride that didn't seem to affect him.
I remember doing sprints gasping for air, and Paul barely breaking a sweat, turning his head towards me, while seemingly casually sprinting, curious what the big deal was.

He drove his station wagon full (at LEAST 6 of us) to Ocean Beach Park, coolers of beer on board, screeching out his drivers window at passersby in downtown New London, arms crossed on the door, WHILE driving. AHHH
HAAAAA!!!(Super LOUD and high pitched like a siren).

Kind of nuts, but mostly kind!

He taught me that even the grizzle/fat on a steak was delicious to eat. (from our post Basketball season [email protected] Hatfield Club/Barn.)

Or how about his days on the muster team, where he would run UP the ladder like a squirrel?

Just a really unique human that we will never meet the likes of again.

At 63.5 years old, all will have lived 2 billion seconds since birth...while my contact with Paul was only really a FEW seconds relatively...they were a blast!

A true pleasure to have such wonderful memories of him.
Thank you Adam and Connie and Alan and Judy and Diane and Karen et al, for great memories from so long ago!

Paul had a heart of gold. He was so much fun. Never said a bad word about anyone. We all just try and be the best we can. May you fly with all the angels above.

Paul was a larger than life character. He was a hard worker, an amazing athlete, a team player and a classmate whose fun personality was contagious. He was friends with everyone. I’m proud to have known him. God Bless him.
