Our thoughts and prayers go out to Paul's family. Keith worked with Paul in the 60's when he was an engineer at Union Pump. He learned many things from him and enjoyed his friendship. He also continued to banter back and forth with him at Cedar Creek golf course where they enjoyed poking fun at each other. He will be missed greatly.
