I haven't been active on the forum for a few years (still lurk from time to time), but Paul always seemed to come across as a decent bloke. I was pretty shocked to hear of his passing....very sad. RIP

I first came in contact with Paul when he ran the Yahoo group before LINC. At that time a friend needed O- blood for operations and to survive. I had posted for help on a number of groups and one admin actualy refused to post saying it was advertizing/spam

Paul publicy hit the roof. He then formed a helpline for those with an emergency.

Something I have never forgotten. RIP Paul

RIP Paul, never had the pleasure of meeting him personally but he’s been of great help to me with this forum. Condolences to the family...

I met Paul once, in Battembang, when hand-delivering the two bottles of Jack Daniels that Paul won from me over a US presidential election bet. 

Damn, he got me on that bet, too!!

Paul was definitely a character.  It seems like he mellowed A LOT since moving to Cambodia and meeting his gal.  Damn, but he loved his farming and his bees.

Best to his loved ones.
