  • Clarice and Steve, so sorry to hear about Paul. Comfort and syempathy to your entire family. Loren and Michelle Eckert

  • Paul will be missed dearly by many, even in the church choir, where I had the pleasure to sing alongside him during my days in high school. We had a great time in the tenor section despite being in the minority in numbers. May his wife and children take comfort in the Lord during this difficult time and remember him for his service to the church, community and his family. God bless you……

  • To Clarice, Steve and Karen,

    I am so sorry to hear that Paul has passed. My mother, Janet, told me about Paul. The opportunities I had to talk to Paul and get to know him were few but precious.
    Fishing season is about here. So let’s get out on the lake
    and catch one for Paul! God Bless!
