A message from Paul's daughter, Shendie

My Dad, Paul, died on 15th April 2018.

It was completely unexpected, he was full of life, great fun and always laughing (even if his jokes were terrible!)

Dad was always there for my brother and me and nothing was too much trouble - running us to music lessons, teaching us both to drive, helping us build exciting electrical models and Lego structures, maintaining our cars, any job big or small was never too much trouble. When I was young he made an incredible papier mâché dinosaur park which filled most of our loft, and I spent hours playing with it.

I loved how creative he always was. He used to do pottery, he would try his hand at any musical instrument he could get his hands on, he loved to take things apart and put them back together again and more recently he had been getting good at art. He painted an owl for me as a gift for my birthday and it's beautiful!

Dad gave me away at my wedding and I know he was very proud. I'm so grateful that he could be there, although I can't stop thinking about the things he's going to miss. I always thought when my husband and I could finally buy a house that my dad would be there to fix things up and tinker with the electronics and help us make it a home.

My brother Alastair, and I could always rely on Dad to support us in our music endeavours and he came to all our concerts. He helped Chris and I move house a couple of times and get settled in, he looked after our pets every time we were away and I knew he and Mum were always there for us.

I will miss his laughter, his hugs and most of all his kindness and generosity of spirit.

Love you forever Dad x ♥️ x
