He was a member of the Red Lion Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 1446, and spending time with his family was very important to him.

Paul spent the last three years living at Normandie Ridge, where he was loved and given great care. His family extends a very special thank you to all the staff for their kindness, compassion and caring ways.
