away on September 25, 2015 from this life on earth to a much greater calling to be with the lord
Paul was born on August 23, 1946 and was a long time resident of Santa Fe, NM.
Paul was the light in many of our lives and was a gift to all those who were fortunate enough to
be a part of his life. He had a joy for life and there was nothing he loved more than visiting with
his family. He radiated warmth and love. His strength and faith were qualities that were admired
by all, he had a personal relationship with Jesus and it was apparent as he continued to pray
his rosary until he took his last breaths. He enjoyed being a part of the Knights of Columbus and
riding his Harley Davidson.
There is no man on this earth that could compare to the man he was. Never knowing him was
the only loss greater than losing this amazing man. Although he will be missed, we will never
forget the joy and love the husband father , brother , uncle , grandfather , great grandfather ,
and friend has brought to each and every one of us. We will continue to carry his legacy in our
hearts and in our memories forever!!
