We received the sad news about Paul's passing today. Such sad news to receive. He will forever be in our hearts and his visits here and our visits to Seattle will always be remembered with much joy. He talked a lot about his wife Linda and now he rests with her. Rest in peace, dear friend.

Such a sad way to end the year. Paul and Linda were a beautiful couple. I will miss having lunch with Paul, I'm so glad we were able to reconnect after the phone company years. Peace and comfort to the family.

I'm so sorry to hear about Paul's passing. I remember that he so enjoyed the Seattle Symphony. He will be missed.

Paul is survived by his brother in law David of Pullman Washington. David is the brother of Paul's wife Linda. Paul and Linda were married in Porvoo Finland Sept 1996 in the church of Linda's grandmother who she adored. Paul made this happen which Linda always was thankful for. In 2005 Paul and David (his brother in law but who he called brother ) went to Scandinavia to meet his cousins in Sweden and to have me see where he and Linda were married in Finland ad well as meet the pastor who married them. I'm glad in his last few years he connected with other cousins and they helped him through his last moments.
