Paul attended Stuarts Draft High School. He was a self-employed independent contractor for years, laying carpet and painting. He took pride in his work and constantly looked out for his clients. 

Paul will be remembered most of all for his kind and giving heart. It was his most precious attribute. He loved his family and friends dearly and would do anything he could to help those in need. He was also known for his intelligence, quick wit, and pool playing skills.

A talented guitar player, he played in multiple bands locally in his younger years. He loved music and taught himself to play the guitar, which he played in church for many years. He was so gifted and had many talents. He will be so missed by so many.
