The family would like to take this time to thank Uniontown Office Amedysis Hospice nurses, aides and staff who helped care for him and keeping him as comfortable as possible. Paul also wanted to mention some of his absolute best companions and friends who were always there to support him. Ron Henry, Tracy and Wendy Vernon, Lindsey Price, and Deborah Crago. Your friendships meant more to him than you may ever know.
During his time on earth Paul was a very modest and genuine man. He cared for his pet and lifetime companion/best friend “Big Daddy,” like he was a child. He enjoyed hunting, listening to music, singing karaoke, traveling and spending time making memories with his family. Paul was always the life of the party and if you were there you would be smiling and laughing right along with him. His smile could light up the darkest of rooms.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the ANDREW D. FERGUSON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORIES, INC., 80 Morgantown St., Uniontown, PA. Paul wished not to have a funeral however the family plans to celebrate his life by making sure his final resting place is back home near his parents on “Rock Hill,” in Huntsville Al. Memories and condolences can be shared with the family at adferguson.com and on the funeral home Facebook page.
