  4. I knew Paul about twenty years. Over that many years he became a very good friend to me. He was a very good golfer. I golfed with him many times and I am pretty sure I never did actually beat him. Spent many fun weekends with him at Claude’s cabin doing bonfires and just generally having fun. He will be missed. Especially at the annual Claude Classic this year. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this tough time. Rest in Peace my friend.

  5. Our deepest condolences to Paul’s family.

    When I got the news… I didn’t know how to react … other than, this just can’t be. Over the last 3 days, I have been thinking about my good friend and the talks we had over the years. When either of us needed to talk because we were going through a bump in the road or just hanging out for a few hours talking business or sports… it was good to know that we had someone to trust.

    Sometimes we just goofed around and had a lot of laughs…. I am going to miss my good friend.

    Rest in peace, Paul.

  6. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Danielle, your Dad was an awesome man.
    May he rest in peace.

  7. Danielle and Family,

    I was heartbroken to hear of the passing of Paul. He was such a kind soul and will be truly missed. May you find solace that he is at peace and looking after you from above.

  8. We were so sorry to hear about Paul’s passing. We only knew him through his business Seniors Insurance, but we always felt like he was an old friend. He has taken care of our insurance needs for 14 years. He was always going the extra mile for us. We will miss is great service and his great sense of humor. We wonder what we will do without him.

  9. So sorry to hear about Paul. I hired Paul when he worked for Combined Insurance and he did a Great job and was proud to have him as a top salesman. He was a very kind man and we had many wonderful times together. Was shocked to hear of his passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Trust in the Lord that Paul is in a better place!

  10. I’m sorry to hear about your dad. He was such a great person. If you need anything just let me know. God Bless! Denise Fike

  11. I am so terribly sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. He was the first person I met in Fargo/Moor head.We met our misunderstandings with grace so we both could feel at peace, and for that I am grateful for. I wish I could have been there to lay him at rest, as a part of Fargo/Moor head is gone in my life. Nobody will ever understand our connection. Rather to understand is know Paul had friendships that was something that was eternal.May God Bless his life and soul. Always my friend, never lost, but found. Blessings to the family.
