  3. We were so saddened to hear of Paul’s sudden death.
    We are looking forward to seeing Paul again.
    John 5:28, 29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (29) and come out…”
    When Paul is in perfect health.
    Isaiah 33:24 “And no resident will say: “I am sick.”…”
    And when Death will be no more.
    Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.””
    Paul loved to study Gods Word the Bible. He will be greatly missed by all his friends. To all who miss Paul, we offer our sincere condolences and hope you can find some comfort in the verses above and that God will one day wipe out every tear from his faithful ones eyes.

  5. One of my most vivid memories of Paul is from when we were playing ice hockey together. He was our goal keeper and I played defense. In one intense game our opponent had the puck at the point as was winding up for a slap shot. From behind I heard Paul say,” Move left”. The point man whipped off a shot and the puck whistled by my head at about 50 miles an hour. Then I heard a pop as the Paul caught the puck in his glove, another save. We just looked at each other, we were teammates.
    Paul made friends with everybody. We were whitewater rafting on the Leigh River north of Jim Thorpe PA. The river runs through a deep ravine and is very remote. We hadn’t seen a house or road for miles as we came around a bend in a quite section of the river. We heard a rustling on the bank, and someone yelled, “Yo, Paul!” One of us asked, “Is there any place you can go where you are not recognized?” Paul just shrugged.
    Paul and I were acting as mechanics for a friend that owned and raced a Formula Ford race car. We were at Summit Point race track for a Sport Car Club of America race. All different kinds and classes of sports cars were there. Paul Newman was there racing in the unlimited class, big engine sports cars. The evening between Saturday qualifying and the races on Sunday is pretty much party night, kind of an all-night tailgate party. Paul wandered off and we didn’t see him until the next morning. We asked where he went and he replied, “was over at Paul Newman’s compound.” No more details, just partied with Paul Newman all night. Knowing Paul, we didn’t doubt it for a second. Later that morning, we were returning from our race and the next class of cars were heading up to the track. Paul Newman was walking towards us, looked up, and said, “Hey Paul.” Paul replied with a nod, “Mr. Newman.”
    So many fond memories of time spent with Paul. We are all going to miss him. The world was a nicer place with Paul here.

  6. Growing up Paul was one of my two “Brothers from another Mother”. We were the three musketeers. And now, I find I am the last man standing.

    Tonight, as I write this, I raise a glass of my finest whiskey in a toast: Paul, it has truly been an honor to be your friend. When my time comes I will meet you down by the river. Until then you will be missed.
