Paul will be remembered for his joy. He often had a smile on his face and he shared that joy with others by just being himself. He’d tell jokes, ask you to sit and watch a western (John Wayne & Bonanza were his favorites) and treat strangers like they were family. Paul did not know how to contain his joy, he shared it with everyone. You did not have to know Paul for him to talk to you, he was the kind of guy that would strike up a conversation with the check-out clerk, the waiter, the bank teller, it didn’t matter. He knew how to have friendly conversations with them all. Every year, when asked what he wanted for Christmas, his response was to be able to spend time with his family. He never needed or wanted anything, but to have the joy of those he loved around him.
