I met Paul in 2002 in Cebu Ciyu and we have been close friends since.      He moved to Thailand for awhile for a change of scenery, visited Sihanoukville, Cambodia early 2012 on a visa renewal run and

Paul was cremated in Phnom Penh on December 9.   Chan has his ashs/urn with her at the farm.   I was a witness at the cremation.  

These days I come to this forum infrequently so I've only now learned the sad news of Paul's passing.  The expression "larger than life" would be an apt description of him methinks.  I met him a few t

Paul was the brunt of many of the memes that I posted in forums long gone. He usually found them humorous and had some great comebacks too.

A man I never met, seldom agreed with and more than likely would not have been friends with if I would have met him personally.  He touched my life and saddens me deeply to hear of his passing.   

Thank you @InternetTough for bringing the thread up on the portal when I was likely to see it. I had no idea...

Soarking’s words work for me. 

This forum is a great legacy to the global community from Paul. 

RIP

Dang, I don't watch this forum much anymore and just seeing this thread.

Paul, you were a renegade in a good way. And you put up with me besides my strong opinions at times. So much respect. I'll miss you.

I had keep in contact with Paul over the years since he left the Philippines.  I would always email him when I would go back to Cebu to let him know. We came back to Cebu last Feb (2019) and never got a return email, sadly, now I know why.    He and my wife (Gina) were Facebook friends and he would send 'likes' to her over the years. 

He will be missed by many. 

RIP my brother.

I noticed he received a lot of bad mouthing even including some odd website. True or untrue I have no idea. I can only say he was more then decent, fair and honest with my interactions. More important he was consistently like that and never less. I can only go by my experience and say all nice things about Paul.
