Paul is a dear friend who was always a sharp dresser and kind hearted person. I was shocked to see his name in the obits...We met in 1990 and he never failed to make me smile. He was a part of many worship times, funerals, weddings and just times around the "Welcome" deck. He has a real gift of music and is missed by a multitude of brothers and sisters in the faith.

I had the the pleasure of working with Paul in the 1970’s at the VA Outpatient Clinic. He assisted many veterans in obtaining prosthetic services. He was such fun and we had a lot of good laughs. I am sorry to hear of his passing. Debbie Hendrix
