Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

Dad, You will Always be missed, We love you so much, and I know you would not want us to dwell on this, But it is hard. You are the once person we could turn to for advise, for a hug. You Knew so many people and that is beautiful. You could always hold a conversation with why one about any thing. 

You told the cheesiest of jokes, and made people laugh no matter what. It is hard to believe that you will no longer be in our lives. No longer be here to Help us there the hard times in our life. I love you daddy... I wish you where still here. I wish that I could have said I love you more...

You knew thousands of people,  and they knew and Loved, you

"Dearest Sherrie and Family, I feel Paul with us everywhere, in my pictures on my desk, in the pictures in your homes, in the precious memories we all hold so dear. In our thoughts, in the funny sayings or riddles he would tell...the wonderful stories he would tell us about at the auctions you and him went to...he loved every minute of it all and he loved all of you. His life is like a thread woven into our time of life and that thread may be a lil frayed at the ends now but it will never be unraveled. He will always be an integral part of me and you that will never leave us. He will always be remembered as if he was just here with us a minute ago, from his funny jokes to his un-measurable knowledge and quick-wutted sense of humor. I have learned so much from him and am continuing to learn from all the things he taught me about how to look at life when he was here. He will never be forgotten. Sherrie, Please know that his ATT family is your ATT Family too and we miss you, the kids and the GRANDBABIES! (Paul always said they were called GRAND for a reason as his eyes lit up.) Please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We DO MISS YOU!"

"Its a struggle to find the words to express how much Paul is missed daily here at AT&T, I know his passing on has left such a big hole in so many lives here at AT&T and at home. To Jason, Ariel, & have to know you all were the very apple of his eye! He loved you so much & would light up when he talkd about cake decorating or the new place you moved to or the hurst he bought just in time for a drivers license. To the Grandbabies-if there was ever something that filled him with was talking about you. Paul always said...Grandkids are called GRAND for a reason! To Sherrie-you are and always will be the love of his life! Whether he was at work or flying around with his new eagle wings you are the wind beneath his wings. I know this is a real hard time for you and Im so sorry you are going thru this. Paul needs you to be ok with the new things life is going to bring you and we need you AT&T baking and making us more cookies and treats. These treats and goodies that you and your family so thoughtfully made for us year after year have been a blessing because it gave us all a chance to get to know Paul and his entire family. We'd like this tradition to carry on so we can still have something to look forward to here at AT&T and we want to keep in touch and have you all in our lives. WE LOVE YOU SHERRIE, KIDS AND GRANDKIDS! Much prayers and thoughts for family and whoever knew Paul for I know...if you knew feel the loss."

"You were my light and my life my love without you I am empty and alone my soul aches to be with you again without you I am nothing for you were and are my everthing"

"Paul was hands down the smartest and kindest man that I will have the pleasure of having known. I met his entire family when I was only six years old. To be honest until then I had literally no friends, I was new to my neighborhood and as socially awkward as a child could get, in my eyes they will always be like family, and Paul was always there for family. He gave myself and so many people a place to get on their feet, and he always had the right advice to give, even if nobody would listen. He would do anything in his power to help of he could and felt that it was right. He even helped me to shut down a $3000 at&t fraud case against me, which I had been fighting for over a year. No matter what life placed in his path he had a smile at the start of the next day and a joke to put things in perspective. I loved him like a father, I knew him more than my own or my step father. He was a good man and friend, and a great father, husband, and grandfather. He will be missed."

"I remember Paul when he would get home from work and point out that it was the best part of his day because he could take off his shoes and relax..."

This tribute was added by Ariel Orlandi on 23rd April 2014

"Paul is/was an awesome Man that always had family first, he knew just what to say or do when things seemed bad. He made silly jokes and always had a quote in his back pocket to share when he saw fit. Never a day I didn't see him smile, he was always full of interesting facts and knowledge to share. Him and his family where good to me and gave me a home when I had non and worked with me to get me on my feet and ready for the world (even when I was to afraid to try on my own), they showed me what true big hearted and caring people are fully capable of. I will always remember Paul and the amazing person he was.
