    This world wont b the same without u in it and neither will my life.You, Mom and Stephen r my life and now a huge piece of it is gone and our lives wont ever b the same. I’m sorry I got sick and I couldn’t say goodbye and I’m sorry I can’t be at the service. And it’s hurting so much with out u. You’ve always believed in me even when I didnt believe in myself. You’ve always forgiven me for my addict behavior because u understood it. You were my friend, my father, and my teacher. U helped me to become the person I am. And I will always blessed with the time that I had with you. I love u Dad and always will 🥺😭🙏

    Since our time together in Germany in the late 1960’s Paul was always a stabilizing force who you could count on ‘when the going got tough’. Even after many years of separation, when we did meet up again it was like old times, friendships like that are hard to find. I knew him as a wonderful friend, a loving husband of Anne and, I am certain, a good father. I will never forget his sense of humor and pure enjoyment of life. He was an example of positivity for all of us. RIP

    Although we have not stayed in touch over the years, I have fond memories of Paul and his father visiting my grandmother Lillian Paquette and uncle Richard Paquette in Groveland so that he could shoot his BB gun in their backyard. I was more than happy to tag along and assist! RIP Paul. You will be missed! Condolences to Anne and his family.

    Words are not adequate. Like all Emile and Zenobia’s grandchildren, there were some wonderful memories as we gathered as family. Paul was always the creative one. We always seemed to have so many parallels in our lives. He was a fun cousin in our youth, and a kind friend later on when found one another on FaceBook. My heart is with you Anne Marie, Katie, and Stephen.
