This is indeed very sad news - a nicer man you could ever want to meet. He was true to his family, to his friends and to the hobby. Our condolences to his family and friends - he will be missed, there is no doubt about that. Rest in peace, Paul ....

I'm floored! I just got a PM from Paul Tuesday night in which he said, "I am still in AZ. Having a ball doing roadster things." My thoughts and prayers go out to Marge and family. We all just lost one super guy.

Met Paul a time or two at Bonneville and was looking forward to this year.
Never met a nicer guy!
This just floors me...
Godspeed, Paul.

OMG, I was just hanging out with him and his wife in SoCal a couple of weeks ago. I'm shocked
My heartfelt condolences to his family and many legions of friends.

I used to have a repair shop on Cape Cod, Paul would come by sometimes and we would talk old Fords. I had not seen him since I moved away, but followed him on the Barn. He was a great guy, and 100% a gentleman. I am truly saddened to hear of his passing. My condolences to his wife and family.

I think the legacy Paul leaves is that of a good husband, father, grandfather and friend. I have yet to hear or meet a person who knew Paul that did not have only good things to say about him. He was a true gentleman, man how he loved his family, and his AV8 Roadster. I'm glad he was in Arizona and having a ball, able to drive his roadster with his wife. My thoughts and prayers to Marge and his family. LouB.

I've been working in my shop all day, it's 5:15 pm. right now. I just had 2 calls out in my shop about Paul. I couldn't believe it. He just e-mail me a couple of days ago. He called me 2-3 time from AZ this winter. I had to come right in the house and check the barn. Paul was a very good friend, he would come up to Me. 3-4 time every summer. I feel so bad I'm fighting back tears and feel sick. I feel bad for Marge, they both were the best people you'll ever meet. RIP Walt
