Paul was a loving father, husband, brother and grandfather.

A retired attorney, Paul was an avid cyclist, literary scholar, all-state clarinetist and homing pigeon breeder. He graduated with honors from La Marque High School, University of Houston, University of Michigan and University of Texas Law School.

His family is forever grateful to the researchers and oncologists at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for prolonging Paul’s amazing life.
