Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. Paul was born in Toyko, Japan

Pentagon. Following his retirement as a Master Sergeant, he earned an Associate’s Degree

from Syracuse University and taught photojournalism at a Regional Occupational Program

with his camera!” He was married to his wife, Ella, for forty-five years. They resided in

Redlands, Calimesa, and Yucaipa, where they raised two children, Hannah, and James, and

two grandchildren, Austin and Chaim. Paul over the years had many pets that he loved and
