He was full of jokes and laughter and was known to play a prank or two. He had more than a great sense of humor. Paul loved to create things with his hands and could turn an ordinary piece of wood into a work of art. He hand-crafted various types of vehicles and guns. Paul was also a talented musician and loved to make music at home or at church. He wouldn’t call them “hobbies,” but he enjoyed watching John Wayne, playing card games, and shooting guns.
