“Paul was my uncle, and I have fond memories of Paul as a kid. He was fun to goof around with and I felt happy when he attended family holidays or when he was staying with my Grandma Arlene.

He would often sit at the kids table with my brother and I and we’d all goof off together, there weren’t many kids in our family, so we were happy for his childlike energy.

I hope Paul feels peace as he rests. And I hope my grandma Arlene and Grandpa Bud are both welcoming him with their love, and that he will or has gained all that he’d been seeking. ”

“I was so saddened to hear of Paul passing. He was a special person. He stayed with Gordon and I for a time. And man he was something else he kept us entertained. And busy. But he was a dear. One of a kind. I will miss him. Just wish we had stayed in touch. My brother died in vietnam and he gave me comfort over his passing .RIP Paul. See you at the resurrection”

“Stan and I want to give a final salute to Paul. We appreciate his service to the country during a very contentious period of US history. The photo is a great reminder of the Paul I remember from St. Francis School and RCHS. It makes me smile, as he was always kind to this shy, little kid. Laura

“Pauly... you will always be remembered and dearly missed. You never had to be worried about being yourself around him. He was comfortable with who he was and set others at ease. I'm going to miss you, Pauly. You were a wonderful friend. Things will never be the same without you popping by. Rest easy.”

“Paulie was a hoot from start to finish. I didn't have the chance to know him long, but I'll always be impressed with his genuineness, the way his brain never stopped coming up with new ideas and projects (even if some were a bit kooky, they were at least good for a laugh), and his loyalty and concern for his friends. He was a good man and will be missed by many.”

My sincere condolences to all his family and may God Bless them in these difficult times.David Hickey and Family.”
