Paul and family...I am so sorry to hear that your father passed away. I have known him since I was a child and have enjoyed my visits with him at the Home Depot. He was a very special man. It's a blessing to know he is with his wife and passing family members.

I've known Joe about 11 years when I first met him he was my neighbor Paul's Dad. Then getting to know him he became just joe. He fixed a Vacume Cleaner and a lawn Mower of ours. If Joe couldn't fix it it was not fixable. When we had our girls joe was someone they seen alot by paul's on the deck in the yard or in the garage. He then became Grandpa Joe not just to my girls to the neighborhood. Paul's dad Joe, Joe who could fix anything and my favorite Grandpa Joe. We will miss you!!!!!!! The Solis Family
