    I have never forgotten Paul from our time working on the Art & Design building on campus in 1978. He was kind to a out of state worker from Houston. I was hoping to see him after I moved to Lawrence.

    Paul, like the other Badgers, had and have many Christ-like characteristics. We knew Kenny and still know Rosie. In fact, we were neighbors to Murray and Rosie for several years. We thank the Lord for their lives.

    I have known Paul since he worked for the school district and I worked for the city. Him and I were both electricians and helped each other on various projects. He worked with me on a couple electrical jobs this past summer. We drank coffee together in the mornings since I retired. I will miss him. RIP big brother. See ya on the other side.

    Scott and family;
    I worked with your dad when he worked for the school district and I for LHS in maintenance. Paul helped me tremendously in my career. Your dad and I kept up over the years and just before he died I spent time out to his house with him. Going to miss Paul and our talks. Paul was tough but generous if ever needed him! RIP Paul.

    Paul was always so kind in offering to help anyone. He loved our Lord and I’m sure is happy in heaven but we expected to see him when we returned to Lawrence the end of March. Happy I was blessed in getting to know him.
