Paul enjoyed the outdoors and spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Softly in the evening, you heard a gentle call. You took the hand God offered you and quietly left us all. The day you left us Dad, our hearts broke into two, the smallest part is still with us and the biggest part with you. For the rest of our lives we will miss you Dad, our secret tears still flow. Oh, how we really loved you, no one will ever know. We will miss your smile, your joking ways, we will miss the things you used to say and when old times we do recall, it’s then we will miss you most of all. You were always there when we needed you, no task too great or small, with loving heart and willing hands, for us you did it all. Look around your garden Lord and when he turns and smiles, put your arms around him and hold him for awhile.

According to Paul’s wishes, a private family service will be held.
