I loved interacting with Paul at Spangler Chapel when I attended there in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. He had a great sense of humor and a wonderful laugh. Condolences to his family he will truly be missed!

Paul was a loving man and friend. I had the pleasure on a couple of occasions of sitting down a talking with him, mostly listening to his common sense stories and answers to questions I had. Just a wonderful man who will be missed by many. To all of his family, you have my deepest sympathies. RIP Paul Reed.....
