Paul’s lifetime career in sales spanned furniture sales, Fuller Brush and DuMor, and provided a wide circle of acquaintances over the years. He and Mary Alice have enjoyed their years at Hubbard Hill and have deeply appreciated the care Paul received during these last weeks through Goshen Hospice and at Hubbard Hill Healthcare.
Paul loved having campfires with family and friends over the years, sharing stories, laughter, mini candy bars and peanuts.
