I met P. G. when in college at D&E in the late 60's-early 70's. He was a delight as he enjoyed street machines and understood the work involved in having and driving one. He represented the State Police in a very positive manner.

It seems like yesterday but it was 14 years ago when I saw the caring and compassionate Paul as he cared for Jamie at WVUH. He was so kind and I was so touched by his ability to handle such a difficult situation. I didn't realize the tough trooper was an LPN. I will always remember his friendly personality, and down-to-earth manner, and the beautiful vegetable gardens he had. I remember how crazy Joanne was about this man, and may her beautiful memories comfort her.

Sorry for your loss Joann and Casey,Paul was a good man and a great friend.I think the first time I met Paul was one day I was driving my old car to work at a service station near Belington and I saw him come up behind me in his old Ford truck,when we got to a stright he went to pass me and I thought I'd race him a little so I hit the gas (even though I knew I couldn't out run him),but when he got beside me I looked over and saw the State Trooper uniform ( I didn't know he was a trooper then)and slowed down scared I was going to get a ticket,he went on by but pulled in the place I worked,nervouse I said nice truck and he just smiled and said thank you,I'll never forget that smile.Rest in peace Paul.
