their children became fast friends. Paul and I went through school together then grew up and went to Baptist temple Church together. He was a splendid example of being a Christian man and served his people on his deacon lists, very well. He left a big pair of shoes for us to fill. I look forward to seeing him again in Heaven.

I worked with Paul when we were at Westside Drive and until layoffs at Beaman on Rowan Way. He was one of the kindest, nicest people I have ever known. A true gentleman. Our sympathy to his family. Jane Martin

I went to work at Beaman Corporation when I was 19 years old, Paul took a chance on me when I was a freshman in college studying Architecture. I stayed with him and Beaman corp, through 3 lay-offs when they moved to Roaine Way. Then 4 years later fate brought him and I and another Beaman colleague together to work for Vanguard/AT&T for 6 wonderful years together. That was a great partnership. He was in a position that suited him, he was also doing for others and making sure everyone was taking care of. He had one of the biggest hearts! Paul you will be greatly missed.

Went to work at Beamon Corp. along with Joseph Ingold, worked there until Joe and I went into the Sea Bees in May of 1966. Paul was my boss and was very helpful to a young high school guy! He was always very quiet and pleasant to work for. I never seen him again after I left for military service. Just know he was a very nice person to everyone! Kermit Coble Jr

I was 15 1/2 years old when I went to work at Beaman Corp. This was thru the industrial training program at grimsley high School (1963). He was very kind to me and eager to train me. I stayed with Paul until the office was closed on Rowan way. Paul was a terrific man. Joseph Ingold
