Paul was a quiet man who stayed at home with his wife. He had a morning routine of getting his coffee, playing computer card games, then watching the news, then finishing it off with reading a book. He would also deliver breakfast in bed to his wife. Paul and Virginia were together for 41 years and they married on July 13, 1977. After retirement, Paul and mom enjoyed years of travels in their motor home seeing the country, taking lots of pictures and meeting new friends. Paul was a generous man, exemplified by him purchasing glasses for a cashier at McDonald’s. When he did get out of the house McDonald’s is where he went. One of his prized possessions is the McDonald’s stock certificate for one share that was given to him. He would also tell jokes to anyone no matter where he was.
