Paul’s passion in life was music. He loved rock ‘n roll, met many great artists, wrote for magazines and published 15 books on the Sun artists of the Rockabilly era. As our Dad would say “Rock On”.
Resting at Hillsboro Funeral Home, Stratford. Due to current restrictions, there will be a (invitation only) family visitation and funeral service.
