    Paul was always such a caring person. He has treated me like family since the day that I met him. That rough exterior just covered the teddy bear that he truly was. He was so selfless, and always wanted the best for his family and those around him. Paul taught me so many things that I will never forget. I will miss our fishing trips, floating in the pool with Limearitas, our man dates at Twin peaks, and all of the laughs we shared. Take care Paul, until we meet again.

    Charlene, As one of your newer friends here in Gateway and as someone who has walked this path, I am saddened that Paul is gone before I could know you both better. Paul was so vital and handsome and you both so young! I will miss seeing his truck parked here and there in the neighborhood while he fished nearby. Glenna

    Charlene and family,
    Our deepest sympathies to you. You and Paul were some of the first people we met when we moved to MD. You guys helped thru some tough times and we’re truly thankful. We’ll miss those Texas Roadhouse dinners together and wish we could have taken one Harley ride together. Our prayers are with you.

    Charlene and family, We are so sorry for your loss. We had only met Paul one time and that was at the party you had for Dennis. We really had a good time that day and enjoyed seeing all the other cousins too. May you all find comfort in the wonderful memories you all made together. With our sympathy and love, Sharon & Jerry Anthony

    To the dad you never had to be....
    From teaching me how to ride a bike, to taking me to every dance recital and softball game, to teaching me the “correct way” to fish in every pond gateway has to’ve always been my biggest supporter. All the money in the world couldn’t repay you for what you’ve given me. I don’t understand why this happened to someone who was so full of life and finally living the dream you worked so hard to achieve. I suppose the only solace I have is knowing you had a few good years of living your dream and the few hours before your passing I got the opportunity to look you in the eyes and tell you how much I love you. I miss you so much already dad. I will always love you and thinking of you with a lime-a-rita in hand will forever bring a smile to my face and to my heart. My love forever xoxo Renee
