No sense trying to repeat it all, here’s the link to the discussion on the MOA forum. Bottom line; he’s having quite a hard time in the hospital. Please check this out and send good thoughts his way:
Paul was one of the co-chairs for the rally this year (posted about a billion day rides here on the forum) and is just an all-around enthusiastic guy. I really hope he pulls through quickly.August 28, 2010 at 12:32 am #62224
The effort that Paul put into the rally this year was amazing. Prayers for a full and swift recovery.August 28, 2010 at 12:32 am #62237
Unfortunately, Paul never regained consciousness and died Thursday evening. The M/C community has suffered a irreplaceable loss and many of us who knew him now have a big hole in their hearts where Paul used to live. Knowing him, he’s probably soliciting donations for the first Big Gig in Heaven!August 28, 2010 at 12:32 am #62238
Paul’s address: 145 Juniper Dr., Ballston Spa, NY 12020. I know his wife Judy and daughters Patty and Pam would really appreciate your personal notes and memories of Paul.August 28, 2010 at 12:32 am #62240
The family wanted to update everyone on the arrangements to honor Paul.
We will be having a private funeral and burial this week. In a few weeks, we
will be having a memorial celebration that we would love to see all of his
friends at. Dad always said he wanted to have a big party and that is what we
are going to do.
In lieu of flowers we are asking for donations to the Pediatric Brain Tumor
Foundation, a charity Dad was very passionate about. You may reach their website
Thank you for all of your love and support.
