Very sad to hear of Paul's passing. He and I were stationed on Guam together as young Airmen in the early eighties. He and I traveled back together to Ohio for leave one Christmas holiday and met each other's families, shared a meal and then drove to California where we shipped my car to Guam before heading back for the rest of our tour there. We had reconnected and were friends on Facebook, and just today, I realized I had not seen him on FB for awhile and decided to look for him online. Very sad news, Paul was a good person and a good friend during our time on Guam. Like many of our friends in the service, we drift apart geographically, but we always share great memories when we do reconnect. Deepest condolences to his family, and what a great picture of him!
