    To Paul’s family,
    You have my deepest condolences for the los of your husband,dad, grandpa, brother ,uncle…
    Paul was a dear friend and classmate. I was looking forward to seeing him at our 50th reunion this summer in Wheaton. He will be dearly missed. He is one of the funniest and sweetest guys I know. He always had something to say about everything no matter what and it was usually funny even when it wasn’t! I love him and will hold all the great memories I have of him close to my heart.. He was one of a kind and will be deeply missed by many. Love to all of you

    Candy, please accept our condolences on the loss of Paul.
    We were saddened to hear of his passing.
    For me (Duane) he was my nearest connection to Minnesota here in Nebraska. Just a few doors down the sidewalk in Gramercy Park. I (Duane) regret not reaching out more to get to know him better here on earth . The little we talked brought me enjoyment and thought of him numerous times. I now patiently wait to know him better in the skies above.
    May the joys and immense love from heaven surround and engulf his soul. Thinking of you Candy and Paul’s loved ones at this time. May God give you all strength, comfort and courage to keep moving forward.

    My sincere condolences on the loss of Paul.
    Paul was not just a workmate, he was good friend and mentor. I had the honor of working with him for 17 years and I am fortunate having known him. He enriched the lives of countless homeowners seeking to improve their homes and was an integral part in the growth of our company.
    Through his knowledge and humorous persona, Paul was a positive influence for the many who knew him.
    I’ll especially miss his laughter, the humorous description of the battle royale that his dogs had over the weekend, or an explanation of an exquisite dinner he put together that now loomed as a challenge for me to meet with my limited chef skills.

    Wonderful memories my friend. We’ll meet once again someday and laugh heartily.

    Prayers to Paul’s entire family! Becky and I were able to join the Live Cast of Paul’s Celebration of Life from Missouri! We have great memories of Paul and our neighborhood friendships with the Terhaars -Tholes – Ohris in the early nineties! We had adjoining back yards. I could never get our yard mowed without Paul arriving with a cold one! We were blessed with his friendship! Love to all!

    I have known Paul his entire life. I am one of Paul’s many cousins. He was a character and always full of life. As a kid you could always count on Paul to come up with some really dumb ideas. He was still a very caring and wonderful cousin to have. I loved him dearly. I will always miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May you R I P Paul.
