My heart goes out to Karen, Emily and Paul’s extended family. I’m so sorry for your incredible loss. Paul was that friend that was always there when you most needed support. We worked together at SDRC for over a decade, almost always going to lunch together. I will miss you my friend for reasons that go beyond not being able to just call you. I will miss your wisdom. I will miss your kindness. I will miss your friendship. Rest In Peace my friend. Til we meet again.

Thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I have fond memories of hanging out with Paul and friends at church in our teens.

I was so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. My memories of Paul and his family reach all the way back to elementary school at Ryland Heights, where our mothers were involved in PTA. While I was younger than Paul and Susan, we went through school together...being in the band at Dixie Heights High School. Susan and I crossed paths many years later when our children attended Beechgrove Elementary, and history repeating itself, we were in PTA together. Unfortunately, age has taken away many of my memories, but the ones I have recall Paul being such a warm and fun person! Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

Paul was a great guy. When I started at SDRC in 1985 he was one of the first people I met. He was warm and inviting with a quick welcoming smile. I really enjoyed working and getting to know Paul. God called a great one home.

I knew Paul when I worked at SDRC in the 1990’s. He was a well-respected engineer and well liked. Karen, my heart goes out to you & your daughter. I’m very sorry for your loss and send you my deepest sympathies.

Paul, you are a great friend. We had good adventures over the years, shared many a good time. I looked up to you and always looked forward to seeing you and talking and exchanging stories. I look forward to another time, another place, that we can do that again. Farewell My Friend. You will always be remembered. My heart goes out to you Karen and Emily. I know how close you three are. Monica and I will always be there for you, forever friends. ♥️ 😀

We are still in shock after hearing about Paul’s passing. We have been friends with Paul since the mid 80’s. Paul was an exceptional man. He was brilliant, caring and a great listener. Karen and Emily were so lucky to have him as a great husband and father. He was a problem solver and could build and fix anything. His presence and friendship will be sorely missed. We love you!

Karen, Emily and all family members. Please accept my condolences. What a good man. I was one of the people who interviewed PT for that initial job at SDRC many years ago. Always enjoyed working with him, and talking about life and family as the years went by. Knew his stuff, that's for sure. Glad he stopped by my office to say goodbye the day he retired. As usual we had a good laugh together recalling days and projects gone by. And he liked to remind me of that initial interview! A chuckle was never far away when having a chat with PT. Gone but never forgotten, and so glad to have known him.
