Paul had a passion for gardening and enjoyed entering his vegetables in the state. He was honored by the Governor of New Mexico for his amazing produce. He also loved to hike and continued his jaunts into the mountains into his 70’s when he hiked to the summit of Mount Timpanogos. He was a gentle, compassionate, and giving man. For one year, he took in a refugee from Sierra Leone who lived with them as part of the family in Los Alamos. Paul supported charities and humanitarian services throughout his life.
