Paul earned his undergraduate degree in dietetics and a master’s degree in school psychology. Paul married Deb, his soulmate, in June of 1992 and they moved to Washington state and settled in the Methow Valley, and the last few years in Okanogan.
Paul worked in the Okanogan School District for many years as well as the Methow. He treated people with respect and was always an advocate for people that needed it the most! Paul will be remembered most by his great sense of humor, as he loved to make people laugh! Paul enjoyed golfing, fishing, barbequing, hiking, camping, swimming and working on projects, but most of all spending time with his family and friends, while listening to music! A celebration of his life will be planned in the spring.
