Memories Timeline


  1. My big little brother you faced so many trial and tribulation and joy. My heart rejoices that you are now among the “great cloud of witness”  that you have missed for long.  Never the less  word can not express my sadness at not hearing your voice again in this world. Love you Paul 

  2. I really admired and respected Paul in many ways. He meant what he said. My condolences to his family and friends! 

  3. Sylvia, prayers and thoughts are with you and your family on the loss of Paul.  
    Always Mott and Lynn Olivier , May he Rest In Peace .  I wish we had met him because he seemed like such a great guy.  

  4. Mr. Paul was my first tool pusher on the Middletown when I started for Rowan in 2003. I grew to have a lot of respect and admiration for him. He was a great leader, mentor, and friend. In the ten years I was with Rowan, I never had another pusher quite like him. He will be missed. My prayers are with the family.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. You took very good care of him, my friend.

    You are in my thought & prayers. Love you, Beck
