I am so very sad to hear of the death of Paul. I’ve known him for years via both of us working as coordinators of Family Resource and Youth Services Centers for the Newport Schools. I have so many fond and funny memories of Paul. He seemed rough around the edges but truly had a heart of gold. He was a Youth Services Center Coordinator who went above and beyond the job description for Newport students and their families. He had a journalism degree giving him the skill to write many grants for the Newport Schools that brought funding and important programs to the school system. He sometimes stayed in his office the entire weekend to write a grant. I admired his energy which possibly could be attributed to ADHD and coffee. He always had a cup of coffee in his hand. He put together word combinations that are memorable and hysterical. I sincerely regret that Paul and I were not able to stay in touch after he retired. He will be missed by all who knew him. I will truly miss Paul.
