  2. Well I have to say my family lost a good friend and grandfather to my son Shawn on Sunday, my family has known Paul for 27 years and Paul was a kind and loving person to all his friends and family, he cared a lot for my mother at one time when they got along. He spent his time taking my mom and son to Sprint car and NASCAR races, we would travel to Indianapolis, Michigan and North Carolina each year to see Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart his favorite drivers in NASCAR. But Paul really had a passion for the Sprint cars especially the World of Outlaws and his favorite was the “King” Steve Kinser. Paul even had a golf cart painted like Steve’s sprint car. He would take that golf cart to every race, he made a lot of great friends at Eldora speedway and Knoxville ( Dale, Joe, Stevie Lee, Larry Kinser) just to name a few and they would travel and meet there every year for the Kings Royal and he would open his heart to all that wanted to come join him. Paul got my family interested in racing so much that we still make those trips to sprint car races. Paul also loved to fish with his long time friend Larry Moran and Paul would take our son Shawn fishing as well. I have to say he made a difference in our lives and will be missed for eternity.

  3. I have lost a long time friend, who seems more like a brother. In our teens he would go with my family to visit my Grandparents in Tennessee. A big breakfast always was served. Biscuits and gravy being staples in Tennessee, Paul would always want toast. He finally changed to biscuits after several trips. I sure have a lot of fun memories we shared. I will miss him.

  4. My family lost a great one on Sunday. Paul was deeply loved by many. He was a wonderful Step-dad, Father-in-law and grandfather. He never missed a game Shawn played no matter what the sport. If it was a good distance away, he would load up the motorhome and before long, there he was at the game. All the years we spent going to races will be cherished forever. Scott and I could not have asked for a better role model for our son. You were and always will be our family. We will miss you deeply. Love you PP.

  5. Paul was always a caring, fun person in school. As I remember, a great
    basketball player. I moved away for a few years so I lost track of my friends from school. When I moved back to Indiana about 12 years ago, Paul and I got acquainted again and spent some special times together. He will be missed by so many friends he has made in his life. RIP my old friend.

  6. Sorry for Paul’s passing. We both knew him for many years, through both school and work.

  7. Paul and I go back to Westvale grade school . Paul , Tony Mainord and me took joy in taking our best Teacher Coach Rod Wood to lunch ( 3 times ) along with other Westvale Alumni . Rod was elated that he was remembered this way . I had the pleasure to work with Paul in the Shipping Dept . at Guide for 21 yrs . Horse camped together , fished , and even partied . After retirement we played a lot of golf and worked at the Indianapolis Speedway Motel , Restaurant entrance . Helping the George family with their friends at all the events held at the speedway ( Indy Car , NASCAR , and Senior Golf for 2 yrs . We met a lot of famous people and those famous people met Paul and all was on a first name bases . Later on Paul , Larry Moran and me took GM company cars to the GM exec’s at the GM plants in Indiana until they moved our job to Kokomo in 2014 . Paul and I stayed in touch and went to Guide luncheons together . He was a very good friend .

  8. Paul was a great friend that I have known since the early 60’s. Paul always had your back and was truly a good friend to have during our early years. Paul had a love for Corvettes and we would always meet at various places throughout Anderson, Paul with his Corvette and me with my Corvair. I told him when my car grew up it was going to be a Vette. I remember his laughter to this day. Many Many wonderful fun and fun times in the Sixties.
    We left Anderson in 1971 and we only saw Paul a few times over the past 55 plus years, but we always managed to call each other about every 6 months just to chat. Paul will greatly missed!
    May His Memory Be Eternal!

  9. Paul was always fun to be with. Great sense of humor. Always smiling. Just a very good individual.

  10. Paul and I grew up on the west side of Anderson we met at Westvale school in 1956, play sports together through high school. Paul was one of my closest friends you could always depend on Call for support.Paul would always make sure I had a way to practice and the game, when its was not cool for us to hang out together. I will surly miss my friend.

  11. I am shocked and sad to see this ! Paul , Danny Warrum, Woody Furney and I played golf every Thursday at Killbuck for over 20 years ! We laughed about anything and everything ! We drank a few beers and really enjoyed each others company . Danny and Paul were “Westvale Wildcat ” alumni where my mother taught from its opening until she died in1977 . I have never had a better time on the golf course than with them ! I moved to Florida in 1999 after retirement from Guide . I thing often of those three guys ! What wonderful memories !
