Sorry for your loss, I haven't seen him or Brad in a few years, but always enjoyed the time in the Reserves with your dad. He was a great guy to work under and always fun to be around.

Very sad to hear about Paul. I always looked forward to seeing him at church when I came home. He always gave me a hard time and I looked forward to it. Sending prayers to the family. Jo-Ann Tisor Ralls

Amber, Scott and Brad and families I am sorry to learn of Paul's passing. The last time I saw him was at our 2017 MHS Class of 1952 class reunion. He will be remembered by Class members as kind of quiet but quite a jokester. Thoughts and prayers are with all.
