Memories Timeline


  1. Paul:

    I still remember that you drove a red rental car using the special access road on the Cape to pick me up from the Kennedy Space Center in front of my family, to assist with a penalty testing at the launch test facility.

    Since then, my son has a different perspective in what we do to make sure a satellite is healthy and ready for mission.

    Rest in Peace! You are greatly missed.

  2. candle 7Paul,

    We worked together on several projects coordinating launch systems engineering and operations efforts on many satellite programs. You made a tough job fun, meaningful and honorable. Your smile and giggle broke a ton of tension and you helped us focus on the tasks at hand when needed. Thank you for your service to our country, our company and all your friends you made along the way. You made a huge difference in this world and we are all in a better place because of you.

    God Speed Paul! Rest in Peace!!!
