Paul was a member of Point Church.
He worked on the railroad as a welder.
What a unique person, he combined humor with wit. It was hard to tell if he was serious or kidding with his witty one liners. He always aimed to please and had a giving heart. He went out of his way to accommodate you and was there to help in any way he could. He was very skilled with wood working, cabinet making and tinkering in his workshops. His passion for family, church and friends made him very accepting and loved by many. Paul will be greatly missed; he was one of a kind. Rest assured he's with the Lord in Heaven, thanks be to God.
