So sorry to hear about Paul's passing. He and I  grew up on Stacy Street near Meridith College. Paul was into technology at an early age. He had a crystal radio he could somehow connect to the ground wire on a power and receive stations from all over. More importantly, he introduced me to sugar sandwiches which were a real treat back then. 

Paul led a good and productive life. He was a great member of the Broughton Class of 1967.

I am sorry to hear of Paul's passing. He was one of my early friends at Broughton. My enduring memory of him involves one of those teenage firsts, my first fender bender. We were making a slow left off Dixie Trail to get to his house. We were behind a older gentleman who suddenly changed his mind about turning left and started backing up. As I tried to turn to the right to avoid him, our taillight areas connected leaving some dents. The other driver popped out of his car, immediately put the blame on me, and suggested  we didn't need to involve the police as it would only hurt my driving record. Paul saw it differently, felt I should not accept the offer, and soon waved down a policeman who happened to be passing by. The policeman heard our stories and promptly charged the older driver. I learned several lessons that day and continue to appreciate what Paul did for me. I told this story to my daughters when they were learning to drive. He was a good friend.

I was sorry to learn about Paul's passing.  We grew up two blocks apart--from Stacy St to Mayview Rd.  We attended Fred Olds, Martin Junior High and Broughton together.

I knew that he was a Morman and served his church and community all his life.

I had a chance after I moved from Raleigh to Atlanta to experience how Paul looked in on my younger brother, Jim.  Jim is bi-polar living in a group home.  Of the friends and family that would check by and invite Jim to church, Paul was very faithful.  He was truly God's instrument.

I knew Paul from Jr. high and Broughton. He was one of the good guys. Not showy, not flashy ..... Just a good guy. I should have spent more time with him. A good solid guy like Paul was worth 10 of the flashy ones. I wasn't smart enough to know that 50+ years ago. Rest well old friend.
