“I had the pleasure of working with Paul for a multitude of years and his playful sense of humor and sarcastic wit along with his love of wrestling was a constant joy. He was always ready to help people and his kindness would shine through.”

“Paul was very smart. Always something to talk about. Very full of life. Very stubborn. He will be remembered as loving sports. Anything you wanted to know, he could tell you. Rest in Peace.”

“Growing up I'd usually get to see Cousin Paul every few years on a trip to Iowa or on occasion when he would get to come visit us in Colorado. I'll always remember the time he came in December and wanted to go to a Broncos game. It ended up blizzarding and I was so miserable. I was cold and just wanted to go home. But he sat there all bundled up, having the time of his life. You could always count on enthusiasm and a strong opinion from him, something I'm sure all of us will miss. ”
