I have worked with Paul since 1988 when I hired on to the P-3 line at FRCSE or NADEP back then. Paul and I have been close ever since. We have traveled together for work many events and had countless good times both in and out of work. Paul and I both share a love for cooking and have had may grill offs and cooking challenges over the years. I think our love for cooking came from our love of eating. We always were designated to cook whether for family feasts, work parties and our holiday luncheons. You've touched the lives of everyone you met and you will truly be missed.

Paul and I started out as coworkers in the early 90s and ended up very close friends. Our kids played together and we went on some fun trips together. We spent a week together in Hawaii on a work trip that made for some fun memories. Any time you went somewhere with Paul you were guaranteed to create some memories and have some laughs. I will miss you brother, love you
