  • So sorry for your loss. We enjoyed visiting with Paul when he and my father were there together.

  • Paul will be greatly missed from all of us at Ross Bros. Paul worked with us for over 20 years. We have so many great memories of Paul. He was a hard worker and very loyal. He was a guy that would give help whenever and wherever needed. You never had to guess what was on Pauls’ mind…he would surely let you know. Paul was just a “real great person”. We had a lot of fun through out the years and we will miss him dearly.

  • Connie
    I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. He was always a pleasant man to take care of. Prayers for you.

  • Growing up I spent several days at the scrap yard with my dad. Paul was always an employee that stood out to me. He worked their my entire childhood and retired as I approached my adult years. If I ever saw him out he would remember me and make it a point to bring up the softball games of mine that him and Sam, “the railroad man”, would sit in their fold out chairs and watch. Sorry to hear of his passing.
    -Thoughts to his family.

  • Paul Jr, Connie, Judy, Patty – I am so glad I met you and could share a few stories of your dad. He brought me joy, taught me patience, and so much more! He will always be remembered in my heart and “Tuesday” will never be the same for me. 🙂
