Paul had a total dedication and love for daughters, Hannah and McKenzie. They were his life!
He was always busy working on a new business or new project. His very first business was delivering newspapers, and his last business was Vintage Motorcycles. He loved finding vintage bikes anywhere in the country, bringing them to his shop to repair and restore, and then shipping in containers to buyers in Japan, Australia & New Zealand.
He loved to travel and share his findings with those back home, often rewarding us with beautiful sunrise and sunset pictures taken from trips around the country.
He loved classical rock music and always ready for a concert.
He will be truly missed by all who loved him.
