I first met Paul when I started my first job out of college at Fairchild Space and Electronics. He was my mentor as I learned how to program at Intel 8086 and was always there to answer my stupid questions. We worked again several times over the next couple of decades and he was always somone I could count on for help on a tough problem.

Paul was one of the most helpful and kind hearted people I have known. It is hard to believe he is gone. He was one of the good ones and he will be missed.

I enjoyed meeting Paul's family yesterday at the funeral home. He spoke of you all often and always enjoyed his family time during vacations. I worked with him for 15 years. He was an extremely intelligent man who was a loving presence on our team.

Paul was my first office mate at my first job out of college at Fairchild Space & Electronics. As a new electrical engineer, Paul was a great role model to me and a good friend to me. He will be greatly missed.

I went to school with Paul as well as Dan at Penn State. Berks Campus and State College. We shared several apartments while there.

After college we worked at Rockwell (the old TMW) in Reading, Hamilton Technology in Lancaster, and Fairchild in Maryland.

He was a great person. Need to realize he is in a better place!

Paul was a colleague of mine at Fairchild for many years. He was an excellent engineer and a great guy with a subtle, low-key sense of humor that could sneak up on you. It was a pleasure to work with Paul; he was always cooperative, diligent and straight-forward. One of the really good guys.
