I never met Paul. I shared maybe a single post with him. But when I read this it still felt like a punch to the stomach. Always polite, informative, and most importantly, positive. I will miss his posts.
I got a thumbs up from him on a response I posted to a German tank question (Ask Paul | Page 4 | GameSquad Forums) since no one else had answered it yet. (Based on the title of the thread, I felt I had an option to attempt an answer.) When a Thumbs Up from Paul popped in, it was pretty cool to get his approval. A definite loss to the greater community.
This is indeed very sad. I had never communicated with Paul, but he was often a voice of reason here, and his knowledge of WWII vehicles appeared unparalleled. I am sure he will be missed on many levels.
Oh no................Paul and I talked many times on armor questions and I appreciated the time he gave me. I never met him face to face, but I wish I could have had that time. He and I shared the same interests and it would have been great to share a glass or two of good whiskey. Well tonight I will share a silent toast with him and wish him good travels and good games upstairs in the game room.. RIP Paul may you always roll snake eyes..
Sad news and a stark reminder of our own mortality. As an Aussie Vietnam vet was fond of repeating to me, ‘ You only pass this way once and you’re a long time gone’
Make the most of what you have and don’t waste a second of it, pretty sure, that in his own inimitable way, Paul did just that.
