Memories Timeline


  1. Paul and I were classmates at the Bismarck Schools. We attended the same church. We both played Clarinet in band and he was a super instrumentalist ("1st Chair"). He was a good friend during those wonderful years. I'm sad to learn of his passing. My deepest sympathy to his family and special friends. Good bye, dear one. "Nancy"

  2. Paul was a very dear friend to me. I've always thought a lot of him. He was great and kind man. I'll miss him. Tammy Pinkley Farmington, MO

  3. So sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I hadn't seen him in years, but I always thought of Aunt Rachael and her family. I Remember her house always smelled soo CLEAN!She was a wonderful person, and all her children learned thru her, their grace and kindness. Goodbye, Dear Cousin

  4. Uncle Paul was always a kind & caring person with a wonderful smile. I haven't seen him in many years but in his picture he looks as happy as he always did. He will be missed.

  5. Uncle Paul was kind man with a wonderful, dry sense of humor. He was the favorite baby brother of the family and will be missed.

  6. Paul and I were classmates in high school and though I haven't seen him in years, I was able to talk with him on the phone a few years ago. Paul was one of the nicest guys in our class, and I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I send heartfelt sympathy to his family.

  7. We send our sympathy to Paul's family. We knew him for many years and always knew him as a kind and caring man. Gary and Pat Dane

  8. I spent much time with Paul assisting him not only with his house cleaning needs but getting him back and forth to appointments. I know that he will be missed, as I have thought of him often, even tho he sometimes was hard to understand. At one point I have even offered to go with him to St. Louis when he thought he was going to get a lung transplant. Paul in turn assisted me when my own father passed almost 5 years ago. Paul struggled with many personal things in his life, that he refused to expose to many so I felt fortunate that he chose to confide in me and trust me enough to be there when I could.
