    I worked with Paul at 3M Company in Downtown Chicago starting in the 1970's. Paul and Joanne always sent me a Christmas card every year including this past 2017 Christmas. I knew Paul was battling several health issues, but I never got the chance to see or talk with him or Joanne in recent years. I will always remember him as a gentle and kind friend and our times working together in Chicago at 3M.

    I was truly blessed to get to work with Paul for many years. Working in research as he did often means building things and testing ideas that have never been tested exactly in that way before. Once he had a vision for what needed to be done, Paul was a genius with anything technical and could make magic on a shoestring budget. He enjoyed his work and we very much enjoyed working with him. We miss him and send our condolences to his family.

    Paul, my good buddy, I will miss him a lot. We worked together at Hines VA Hospital, Research Service, for many years. Paul could solve any technical problem - he was a great electrical engineer. He was a great friend, and we worked on neuroprosthetic devices for spinal cord injured individual as well as some urological applications. I will miss him very much.
