Sorry to hear of Paul's passing.knew through my brother as they graduated together. I was able to talk to him and would make me laugh. Always thought he was a good guy. I guess the good do die young. My brother passed in 2012. Take care.

I was both shocked and saddened to hear about Paul's sudden passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I taught Hunter Safety courses with Paul. He was a great instructor and never failed to have donuts for the instructors and candy for the students.
