Paul was a Chiropractor, he served various churches as a Minister of Music and was a Massage Therapist. He loved singing, in fact he sang in several quartets, most notably the Layman’s Quartet. Paul really enjoyed his Facebook community. A message he has for his Facebook family is that he truly loved and enjoyed each one of you.
