Paul was born on March 22, 1941, in Los Angeles, Calif. He joined the Air Force after graduating from Loyola High School in Los Angeles, and was stationed on the island of Crete, Greece with the NSA.
He was honorably discharged in 1963 and graduated from USC Law School in 1967. Paul practiced law from 1967 to 2004. His last two offices were in Hanford and North Fork, Calif.
After retirement Paul continued on with his love of photography, writing and fly fishing. He is the author of two books, “Trona, Bloody Trona” and “Love Poems with an Attitude.”
Paul fell in love with North Fork and was a member of the North Fork Art Council and one of the founders of the North Fork Art Gallery at the old mill site.
He is survived by his wife Marcia who would like to thank the community of North Fork for their support at this time. Honoring Paul’s wishes, there are no services planned.
