I first met Paul at Belt in Camden, not long after I moved here. Paige, you and I played tennis together and I'll never forget the first time you picked up a racket and started playing like a pro. I am so sorry to hear of Paul's passing, and I pray the peace of God with comfort you and your family at this time.

I met Paul in the late 80s and would see him from time to time at different stores. He always made it a point to speak with me and it usually about Alabama and Tennessee football. We never really knew each other by name and thats okay. I saw Paul a few weeks ago and as usual his greeting of hey brother . He said to me then he was sorry he couldnt remember my name so he always called me Bama. Then we proceeded to talk football.
You dont always have to know a mans name to know they were genuine person. Thats exactly what Paul was. Im sorry for your loss and I will miss hearing hey brother and our short talks.

Everytime I would shop at Homegoods and he was working, he always greeted me with a huge smile, always so helpful and kind. Praying for his family to find peace and comfort

Pauls energy and constant Brotherrrrr banter made anyone feel welcome and at home. He led his teams with his heart on his sleeve and with compassion first- ensuring that no one in his ecosystem ever had to wonder if they mattered and knew that he cared.

So many of those skills are ones that grew on me and that I have continued on with to this day- thank you Brother Paul for all the love, joy, and light you put into the world- you truly made it a better place than you found it.

I was Paul's girlfriend his senior year in high school and we went to prom together. He was a sweetheart of a guy. My memories of him are his dipping Skoal, listening to Pure Prairie League, driving his Celica, and working at Parks Belk. We were going to have a 40th high school reunion this year but covid postponed it. My deepest condolences to his family because 58 was way too young!

Mr Paul was the general manager at the home goods that we frequented, and he always met us with a kind word and a smile! He genuinely loved working with people, and always made our day brighter when we saw him. He will be dearly missed. - Cierra Rayman, Melissa Ardis, Brittney McDaniel
