My condolences to your family. I remember Paul from high school (I was a year behind). My daughter and her friends met him when he was the DJ at local bars/restaurants. He was the DJ for my daughter’s wedding last June. He loved what he did. May he rest in peace.
i am so sorry for your loss. Paul will be missed by so many! I was a classmate and through the years I would occasionally see him and he always stopped and conversed with me. I had the pleasure of having him as a DJ at my son’s wedding and all had a great time. I was so happy for him moving into his house and getting settled with his babies ( his kitties). My sincere condolences.
Paul you are missed by so many friends and especially Erin your little girl as you called her. Continue to watch over her and boys. Guide her to find what she needs to take care of everything. And cherish her memories of you and the times you have spent together. Thanks for being there for the boys when they have needed someone besides mom or dad.
Rest in peace my friend, always enjoyed talking with you about cars and racing, and certainly going to miss your DJ’ing!!
