Paul was a big hearted, easy-going charismatic man who went into career military right out of Fargo Central High School and loved spending his free time riding his many motorcycles. He was a dedicated and loyal gentleman in all aspects of his life and although he was more of a loner, his cheerful spirit and big smile could win anyone over. Yet he loved his sister Marsha most of all. Paul would tell stories of his great achievements such as earning the rank of Master Sergeant through the USAF, earning his 200k mile award through BMW motorcycles, being a 25-year Harley Davidson Owners Group Member, and yet everything would loop back to Marsha always being there supporting him along the way. Paul enjoyed his time in the Air Force and Air National Guard, but his true passion was motorcycles and he really enjoyed going for rides. His favorite time of the year was summer and spending it on the road or going to one of many bike rallies.
