I feel blessed to have played golf with Paul just this past September as part of our 50th HS class reunion. My sympathy to the family, especially classmate Gayle. I knew Paul was an excellent athlete and am happy to read here that he was a musician (surprising) and family man (not surprising) as well. Glad to have known you, dear Paul.

What a beautiful tribute to our dear sweet sometimes ornery Paul. Gayle you were the love of his life since you were kids yourselves. What a wonderful life and family you built together. He loved you all so very much. I wish I was there to put my arms around you all. He was always there for me and our times together were always full of love and laughter. I know he will be watching over you all. I love forever.
