Where do I begin? The obituary explains Paul perfectly...a true free spirit with a passion for the outdoors and a love for people. Always lending a the saying goes, "he would have given you the shirt off his back and his last dollar". While I'm crushed and sad to the depth of my soul...the only thing that brings me back from the sadness is that I will always remember his smile, his laughter and his love for everyone.
Our sincerest condolences to the Family and all of those who loved Paul...
