Received expected but still sad news of the passing of my close friend and neighbor, P.A. Talented artist, long time friend and confidant. Caring and compassionate even performing 'catch and release' of rodent visitors who tried to invade his home space. Using glue traps
he meticulously removed the glue and set them free, hoping they would not be repeat offenders. He was a leader in the establishment of the King's Storehouse, a food bank for needy East Texans as well as being a motivator advocate for ex military members in our community, who struggled as he did with PTSD, service related. He was uniquely talented. A true friend to me and many others. His ability to conquer multiple health challenges over the time of our friendship garnered him the private moniker, 'the Energizer Bunny'. We came to E. Tx., Bought land together. Built homes side by side sharing 16 acres. This time he was not able to beat the odds of the hospital stay. Pneumonia by accompanied covid has silenced him for now. Strong person of faith and special friend. Paul, we will miss you greatly. Thank you for enriching our lives.

Paul was an amazing father and beloved husband. He died during the Covid Pandemic. He was diagnosed with Covid but his brain finally gave out. I was diagnosed with Covid as well so we were separated during his death, cremation and no Memorial was given due to Covid. Our 47 years of marriage was full of adventures. I miss him so much. Due to Covid most comments regarding Paul can be found on Sarahjane Acosta's Facebook page.

Remembering all of the Sunday afternoons at the Food Bank in Garden Valley. Paul was always cheerful and loving. He was a good friend. I haven't seen you, SarahJane or Paul for years, but still have wonderful memories of both of you. He will me missed
