Paul was a very dedicated Elk who will be missed but never forgotten. A thoughtful, considerate, kind man who treated everyone with total respect. His presence will be missed on Legislation Day at the Capitol in Raleigh, but the North Carolina Veterans will never forget what he did for them.

What an honor to have known Paul and worked with him on veterans’ issues.
He will be truly missed.
Fair winds and following seas.
