Paul was outgoing, a friend or brother to all who knew him.  His smile came from his heart.  It was contagious, filling his whole being and his eyes sparkled with love.  He was a lovable family man and he gave great hugs!  He loved his two beautiful girls, his country and Star Wars.

Death may take a life, but it can never take from you the love that you have known because Paul was in and a part of your life.  A part of him will live on in each of you.  As you live on in your life, strive to allow his love and light to shine in and through you in all that you do and all that you strive to become.  We will miss him very much.  May your memories bring you comfort and joy today and always.
