After graduating from high school, Paul joined the United States Army. After leaving the Army, he pursued a career as a welder at Westinghouse which later became McQuay and devoted an impressive thirty-seven years to the company. His commitment and expertise earned him the respect of his colleagues and made him an invaluable asset to the organization. Paul was also a member of the National Guard.

While Paul's professional achievements were commendable, his involvement in various organizations showcased his commitment to serving others. He was a lifelong member of the Second Presbyterian Church, where he served in various positions as an Elder and property custodian. Paul's dedication to his faith was unwavering, and he found immense joy in being an active member of his church community.

Notably, Paul was also an esteemed member of the American Legion Post 13. Throughout his membership, he held every position within the organization, further exemplifying his passion for community engagement and support for fellow veterans. Additionally, he was a proud member of VFW Post 2216 and AMVETS. Paul's contributions to these organizations demonstrated his unwavering commitment to veteran causes and his desire to uplift those who had served their country.

Outside of work and community involvements, Paul found solace in various hobbies and interests. He possessed a remarkable work ethic and always remained busy with different projects for Second Presbyterian Church and the American Legion. However, it was his time spent with family that brought him true happiness. Paul cherished moments with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, creating lasting memories that will be treasured by generations to come.
