In his earlier years, he enjoyed photography and had a great eye for color and design. Being a true son of the Motor City, he loved all things related to cars. He was always on the lookout for that “special” vehicle. Paul loved all of his extended family, friends, Rotary pals, and of course, his dog Phil.
