Our family offers you our sympathy on the passing into Heaven of Paul. He was a great American. We appreciate his service to Country, State, and County. Paul was a man of great knowledge and interest and we will miss him. May the memories of a life well lived in service serve to fill the gaps until we all meet again. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia
