Remembering all the times as a kid, when my mother, Hazel E Pittman Daley, would take us to visit Aunt Jeannette and Uncle Bud! What a good time I always had, having fun times with Paul and all my cousins! I miss them all but am thankful for the memories! Love and Prayers to Joan, Pam, Mitch, and all Paul’s loving family! ♥️

Paul was a Wonderful Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather and a Wonderful Brother to me! Paul never met a stranger and always had smile for every one. Paul was a hard worker and never told anyone no if they needed anything. I'm so proud of Paul for everything he did in his life. Paul was always there for me when I needed him. We we're always so glad to see him and Joan when they came to visit. I will miss our talks on the phone. We we're so thankful when he came to help us to put a roof on when he was in his seventies. Also on my birthday, he would sing me Happy Birthday! I will miss him singing, Waltz Across Texas, for me. I was so proud to have him as my brother. Paul liked for everyone to have a good time at the ruritan. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Paul will always be in my heart and thoughts. May he be at peace in Heaven. Love, Drucie and Sonny

A great man always with a smile. We loved to hear Paul and his band play at church and the Lions Park. We are most grateful to the Lord for knowing him.

I was sorry to hear of Paul's passing. So many fond memories from over the year with dad (Richard Kipe) and my husband (Abe Bowers) playing in the band with Paul. Many many memories. I remember mom and dad calling Paul when the guy up the road would get drunk and cause a commotion and Paul would go and take care of the issue. If my memory is correct Paul was like a constable in Shimpstown. Paul was certainly a great guy with a wonderful family. He was a very upstanding man.
