I worked with Paul at KCRA between 1972 and 1988. A very professional man, dedicated to doing the best in his work, I admired that in him. In these last few years, we have enjoyed conversations about photography at the Broadcast Valley Legends. Always so vibrant, big smile on his face, I cannot believe he is gone from us here. He will be missed by so many. Our deepest condolences to all of you who have lost a part of your heart.
