Paul was born on December 8, 1962, in Streetsboro, Ohio. Paul and Hollie were high school sweethearts and moved to Alaska in 1986. Paul was a devoted husband, father, and grandpa.

Paul started working at Spenard Builders Supply in 1989 and remained there until his passing, working most recently as the commercial sales manager. He was involved in many Associated General Contractors, or AGC, of Alaska activities, including the Associates Council and golf tournaments. He sat briefly on the AGC Board of Directors in 2022. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and those who knew him.
