    Paul and I hung out back in the day and became friends. He always had a good sense of humor, was well read, and was quite an historian. We traveled to Cape Cod one summer and had a blast. I certainly have fond memories of Paul. May he rest in peace.

    Paul and I spent many hours together at Ohio State and became close friends. While he never played football at Bellaire, he made the practice squad at OSU, and to all of his friend's amazement tried out for the kicker position for the Dallas Cowboys. He was a man of many talents, smart and well spoken. I am a better man for having known him. May he rest in peace.
