Paul was a kind soul, the happiest and most positive person. His selfless nature drove him to care for other’s needs before his own. Paul always treasured the time with his family. His favorite place outside of his home was the beach. He enjoyed visiting Disneyworld, playing golf, and taking trips where beautiful memories were made. He adored his grandchildren. Paul loved and was supportive of his sons and he was his wife Diana's best friend forever. Paul was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
