    I worked with Paul for almost 27 years at Ferrellgas. His dedication to making sure that we had propane throughout the UP was second to none. None of us ever doubted Paul would safely get the job done. But Paul was more than that, courteous, kind, caring, friendly are just a few words that I would use to describe him. Paul was a good man and we will truly miss him.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your husband, Renelle. Paul gave you and your children a wonderful life. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

    Dear Renelle and Children, We are heart broken for your loss. Our deepest sympathies to you. Paul was a great guy. Always had a friendly smile.
    We pray God’s comfort for you all.
    We regret that we will not be able to be at his service.
    Sincerely, Barb and Joe

    Paul was my next door neighbor. I live at West Highland as does his mother. Paul always had a smile and a great hugger. Carried groceries to his mom-Rosie frequently. Such a nice man

    Renelle and family,
    At times like this, it’s difficult to find the right words. Sadly, it’s been years since we had seen Paul. Paul was a great friend when we lived in Gladstone. So many great memories of our friendship. We were more than shocked to hear of his passing. Please find comfort in knowing he was a great friend to many, and his love of family will live on forever. Sincere blessing to your families.

    God Bless you all at this difficult time. We are all here for you if you need us.
