So sorry for your loss. Paul was my best friend growing up in Keyser. I will surely miss him. I will always remember the great times we had and the friends we shared. May God rest his soul.
Ryan, Jared,& Andrea, I am so sorry for your loss. I had not talked to Paul in awhile, but growing up he was like an uncle to me. May God bless you all. My prayers will always be with you.
Another condolence from a Keyser native who knew and grew up with Paul.
I will always remember Paul as a very gifted athlete, and a left-handed one at that!
A wonderful, talented, competitive, and intelligent man who’ll be missed by everyone that knew him.
Our prayers for your loss.
Ryan, Jared and Andrea,

our prayers are with all you kids and family. Tell Uncle Dale I hope he will be ok. I know how close him and Paul were and Aunt Sandy. I’ve known your Dad for a long time and considered him a good friend. He was a very nice man
