I had the pleasure of meeting Paul while he was working with us in Tremont, Pa. He was a nice, funny, and smart man. He will be missed.
Paul was a great friend of my brother, Willie Nelson Jr. from way back in the late 80's -early 90's In Beaumont, Texas! I remember he would come over all the time and just hang out & rock out with his music. At that time, he had a cast on his leg, but that didn't stop him from dancing. He was so much fun to be around! I'm sad that we never got in touch over the years. Rest in peace, my friend! Much respect & Love!!!

It was my pleasure and privilege to know and work with Paul.
He loved his family and always talked about them with anyone who would listen.
Paul was always professional and courteous in all my dealings with him.
He was very competent and dedicated to his employer and always took his job assignments seriously.
I always enjoyed the times I got to work with and be around Paul.
He was considered a friend and the world is a little diminished without him in it.
To Paul’s family, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.
Paul will truly be missed.
Thank you Paul for all you did for the AP1000 project.
Rest in peace my friend, your work is done.
