We are both saddened to learn of Paul’s death. He was a hard worker and a dependable friend. Everyone who knew him appreciated his humor. Stories of Paul and my husband as they hunted and fished together are a part of our children’s fondest memories.
Paul had a wonderful sense of humor that kept me going many years ago. Prayers for the family.
Paul will be greatly missed in our family. He was loved by so many.
Always putting a smile on someone’s face. Loved hearing his stories. Rosemary, may the Lord wrap His arms around you and comfort you.
Until we meet again Paul Newman!!!
The stories with my beloved uncle there are so many. Know this no matter what you did with Paul it was going to be a fun and possibly an educational adventure. Boating/ fishing/dancing/card games/ Savannah history/body surfing before a storm/parties it was never boring. Our family will never quite be the same. He absence is truly felt!

Where do you start? This man had one heck of a life many a person would just have loved to had! He always was the life of the party and did just what he wanted to do all his life! I will always miss going to Nascar races with him, he is the reason I got to see the Daytona 500 not once, but 6 different times! Talladega, Charlotte, To name a few! He was a big Race fan! I just can’t believe he is gone! But there is one thing Paul did know, That was his Knowledge of the Bible! So I know he has probably made Jesus smile and laugh a trillion times since he passed! Maybe we’ll see you again Brother Paul! God’s peace and love to the family!
