Oh how I remember Brother Paul. His family has had an an enormous impact on my life. Lots of memories from Munith, Loomis Park Baptist Church and good ol' MBBC, and Adelphos society. In his spirit, he now knows what Jesus looks like, in all his glory. In his flesh, sleep on brother til me meet again. Brother Bob Castle

I knew Paul mainly as a student at Maranatha Academy, but also because he was my Uncle Russ's brother. He was known to most at school as one of the few teachers who always had a smile, a word of encouragement, and most importantly time for all his students, and even if you did not have him for a class... you were still his student.. He was a good, selfless man whose light shown everyday. Enjoy your much deserved inheritance, Paul, and say hello to my parents. This world shines so much less today...
