  1. Paul was an icon of Dickinson to all of us that grew up here and raised our kids here.
    He always had a way to make you smile, and he truly loved his family.
    I loved it when he use to wear his full uniform, just like the boys did, when he coached baseball. He was “The King” of figuring out the other teams signals! 😉

    My heart goes out to the entire family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May God give you all strength during you time of grief.

    Love to all………………

    From , Charlotte, John, Katy, and Charles Barkmann
