  1. What a shock to hear of Paul’s passing. I knew Paul in highschool and will always remember his easy going personality and wonderful spirit. Paul would truly give you the shirt off his back. My prayers are with his family. May God bless you in this time.

  2. I knew Paul from high school. He went to Centennial and I went to Central. He was a great friend and confidant. We shared a lot of laughs and fun—-Many teen-age escapades with Duffy, Paul C. , Troy and the group…. I will always think of him fondly.

  3. Very sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. He was my friend in auto mechanic school. We worked together at Ford, When I returned to Pueblo in 1983, He was there for me and we were roomates for a brief period. When he would come to town we would get together and have great laughs. I have always considered him a great friend and he will be missed. The picture of him depicts how I remember him, always happy and could always make you smile. Take care, My thoughts and prayers are with the family, Alan

  4. My dear Natalie, Tom and I were so very sorry to read of Paul’s passing. Our love and prayers are with you, Anne and Carole.

    Love, Betty Marranzino

  5. My prayers are with you. I remember Paul clear back to when we used to go to Freed. Beth, clas of ’83.

  6. With Deepest Sympathy,
    Sending a bundle of love and prayers your way.

    Paul and I initially met in Pueblo when I was home during the Christmas 1997 holiday, and we continued to date in 1998. Paul relocated to Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, that same year and was a Manager for Ruby’s Diner in Corona Del Mar, CA.

    Truly a good man with a heart of gold. We shared lots of fun memories in our travels to Cabo San Lucas, Indian Wells, Palm Springs, and Las Vegas. I remember what a huge fan of fresh seafood Paul was — especially the snow crab leg/lobster tail combo buckets along the pier at Rockin’ Baja in Newport Beach.

    He sure was a huge football fan and loved his Denver Broncos.

    Paul and I maintained our friendship and kept in touch over the past years. We recently met up over dinner at the Pueblo West Do Drop Inn this past Christmas 2004.

    Paul will be greatly missed by many, as he touched each of our lives in such a special way.

    God Bless and take care.

  7. I knew Paul in his youth, and had lost touch over the years. What I remember best about him was his sense of humor and talant as a Trumpet player. Heaven has now re-gained what we have lost. Only a month ago I thought of Paul as I cleaned my own trumpet, and thought I ought to look him up. I waited too long. I shall always remember him with great admiration and respect.

  8. I liked Paul so well. He had such a great smile and sense of humor. My favorite memory is when we had a “sports day” at work and everyone wore the jerseys or sweaters of their favorite team – not Paul!! He wore his Bronco pajamas. I understand your sorrow as I have also lost a son a few years ago – on Valentine’s day. You’re on my heart and Paul is in my thoughts. God bless

  9. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    May God bless you and comfort you in this time of sorrow.

  10. Paul was a fellow employee at Terminix. He always had a good story to tell me to keep me smiling!! I appreciated very much the help he gave me at work. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  11. My thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s mother and sisters. Paul was a friend of mine from middle school through high school. Although it’s been several years since I’ve seen or heard from him, he was still one of my favorite friends. Myra Watson Robb

  12. Paul was an outstanding individual who filled people with life with his presence and humor. We will miss you Paul and our thoughts and prayers go out your loved ones.

  13. Paul was a good man and loved by all his fellow employees at Terminix. He will be missed greatly and we will keep a good thought in our hearts for him

  14. Natalie, I am so sorry to read about Paul’s death. My prayers are with you and your family.
