  • Paul, you left us way to soon. I guess God needed you more. Your work for him here was complete. We will never forget you and all the wonderful times we shared with the family. My sisters heart is broken but she understands your plan. The boys and grandchildren are so proud of you for your love and guidance. You will be missed immensely. Continue God’s work and watch over the family. RIP All Our Love until we meet again.

  • To Mary and Family: We are very sorry about Paul’s passing. He was a wonderful person with a kind heart and soul. We valued each opportunity we had to spend time with him and with Mary. We will hold each of you in our hearts as you go through these difficult times. Love, Darlene and John

  • Mary, Steve and Derek

    Our deepest sympathies on Paul’s passing. He lived a great life and you all are proof of that! He will be missed, but I am sure he is looking down on us all with a smile and keeping a watchful eye on us all.

  • Mary and the Family: Barbara and I are so sorry for your loss. Paul was a wonderful and humble man who cared less for himself and more for his family and friends. He always made Barbara and I laugh when we got together and we will never forget the good times we had. He was a lifetime friend and we will miss him dearly. Stay strong, your faith in God will cary you through this time. Love, Fran and Barbara

  • Uncle Paul,

    You left us too early. But you left us all with so many great memories! Some of my most cherished memories of you is the Sunday pool days and Christmas Eve’s at your house.

    My cousins and I couldn’t wait for Sunday pool days. We were always greeted by you with a big smile, a big hand shake and a big hug (that sometimes hurt😂).

    You always threw an amazing Christmas Eve for the family and you were always so welcoming. I’ll never forget about 5 years ago when my wife’s parents were in town and we were not planning on coming over for Christmas Eve. You insisted we all come. You welcomed my wife’s parents as if they were family and they appreciated that very much.

    They had such a great time the next year they were asking me “Are we going over to Paul and Mary’s for Christmas Eve, I sure hope so that was a great time?” And sure enough we were there.

    You were always putting others ahead of yourself and trying to help others. We need a lot more people like you in this world Uncle Paul!

    We love you and will miss you but your legacy will carry on.

    RIP Uncle Paul
