Paul enlisted in the Air Force and while serving in the Air National Guard Reserves, until his retirement from Barnes Airport, he traveled around the world for work and pleasure.

Paul had a great sense of humor and loved to give people a reason to smile. He was respected and admired by all who knew him, but especially by his children and grandchildren. His love of family, country, and commitment to always doing the right thing, earned him that love and respect. He will be missed but remembered fondly as a man his family looked up to and feel truly blessed to call him their “Dad” and “Grampy.”

Paul's funeral services, with military honors, were held privately.
