I worked with Paul at Valeant. He was one of the nicest people I had ever met. Kind, thoughtful, level headed, he had so many wonderful qualities. His love for his wife and children was apparent and he talked about them all the time. My heart felt condolences go out to his wife and family. May God give you strength....

I was fortunate and blessed to get to know Paul as a co-worker and friend while working with him at Bayer. There are many qualities which shined from Paul, but the brightest one was his love and pride for his family and children. He was a wonderful person to know and will surely be missed but never forgotten by many. Tom Ranft
