Although I did not personally know Mr. Paul, I really enjoyed him calling in to the different sports talk shows. I am sure his voice is known to many in the Acadiana area and I know it will be truly missed. My prayers are with his family. Thank you Mr. Paul for making my day a little brighter with your calls.

Paul and I go back many years,I stopping at he and his family's store,cafe,the first of what we now call convenience stores.I was a young student at what is now UL,and he a geology graduate from S.L.I.Paul and I sweated and enjoyed many Breaux Bridge H.S, U.L. and L.S.U. games in that old relic store of his.To walk into that old place was like walking into the past with his old hanging football schedules and merchandise.I listened with him to his many beloved radio talk shows,including Jay Walker and quite naturally Big Dave Thibodeaux and Mike Bernard, they many times carrying his beloved Breaux Bridge H.S. football.His final year and one half was confined to his bed,however religiously listening to his sports talk radio and please not let me forget his saturday morning program. listening to L.C. Melchior. I will sorely miss my old friend.

I regret having never met the gentleman. Only heard him on the radio. He was the caller everyone stopped what they were doing to listen to. You always had a smile on your face once Mr Paul hung up the phone. He was a classic, and will be missed. John Zerangue 1420 listener

Paul was the most popular caller on the local sportstalk shows on ESPN1420. As one of the hosts, let me say he was loved by the audience.

My heartfelt condolences to Mr. Paul's family. I never got a chance to meet him, but I always looked forward to his calls to KPEL. He always brought a smile to my face. He would have been someone I would have enjoyed having a soda pop with and talking sports. He reminded me of the grandfather ALL of us listeners wished we had. Rest in Peace Paul...
