I knew Paul for several years.  We were in Boy Scouts together.  He had both mental and physical challenges in his life.  He was older than most of our class by a few years.  I'm not sure how many years he attended EHS, but he finally made it through in 1965.  He wasn't the eaiest person to get along with, but if you were patient with him, he could be a good friend.  I remember our senior year, Coach Mickey Oswald took Paul under his wing so to speak, and I can rember Paul and Coach running around the track together every day in gym class as we were preparing for Coach's famous Zoo Run.  It is sad he died so young, but I hope he had happy productive life during the years after graduation as I never saw him again after that.
