Condolence & Memory Journal

My grandpa was definitely one of a kind. I will never ever forget his loving nature, witty one-liners, awesome stories, and everything else that made him him! I can remember growing up and always looking forward to going to his house (which he was so very very proud of and rightfully so!) and he would be laying on his side in front of the TV and playing a game of solitaire. We would always bring him over either chocolates, cookies, chocolate shakes, or Mountain Dew icee's and he would be like a little kid how his eyes would light up with the sweets - that is if he ate them before he would hid them from grandma!! haha!

I will always remember how much he would make me laugh whenever I was with him. The memories of sitting out on the back porch and listening to his stories from when he was growing up and about life are forever etched in my memory and I will forever cherish them.

Although I am miss him so so so much, I know that he is in a better place and no longer in pain. He is now with his son, parents, and all of his loved ones that left before him so I know that he is happy and looking down on us! Since he's been gone, I have had this unbelievable sense that he is with me and I find so much comfort in knowing that. I can't wait to see you again, grandpa. I love you!

My grandfather was the most loving person I have ever been around. I was always excited to see him and knew that he was going to put a smile on my face, which he did every time. My grandpa always had stories to tell. Most were repeated (haha), but it didn't matter. I loved listening. He would tell me about how he used to play football in the winter. He brought 2 pairs of gloves with him. When the first pair got wet, he knew it was time to walk back home. He talked about his brother a bunch and was evident he had a lot of respect for him. He'd tell me how he used to catch throws for his brother and how his hand would hurt because how good his brother was, but he would always catch for him because "that's family." He would tell me how he taught my dad, John, how to stiff arm and do the spin move in the backyard. He talked about how he was a cook in the army and he would cook X amount of eggs a day.

These are just a few of the stories he loved talking about. Some other sayings/things I will forever cherish as well:
- closing his eyes while he ate! HAHA. I have taken this from him at times
- Answering the phone saying "its a half past freckle"
- How grandma would have to hide candy from him because of his sweet tooth
- the sayings, "really and truly" "I see no value" "jeezo peezo"

There's so much more that can be said about this man, but the one that sticks the most is him coming to a high school basketball game of mine and standing underneath the basket while my team was warming up... until I looked at him. When I did, he saluted me and then proceeded to walked up to the stands with grandma. I saluted back with a smile.

I will forever miss my grandpa but have a sense of happiness knowing he is not alone. He is in God's arms with family and his son, Brian, looking down on me and his loved ones.

I will forever salute you, grandpa. Always love

In 1966 Paul was my first boss at Lincoln Bank. Paul was full of energy and enthusiasm and took great pride in his work. He was a good man who shared his friendship with so many people. My condolences and prayers to Carolyn and family.

I worked with Paul at Lincoln Bank from 1975 to 1978. He was a treat to work with. Always a smile on his face. Always a cheerful disposition. His was a life well-lived. May he rest in eternal peace.
