Lovely "leaving do" for Paul yesterday. It was lovely to see how many had made the journey to Nottingham to say goodbye. He will be very missed by so many but he left us with a veritable collection of memories which none of us will ever forget. If you ever had the privilege of meeting Paul, he will have left a mark on your heart and you will remember him forever. Sleep well Paul, see you later xxx

Memories of Paul from our days in Nottingham in the eighties. We met again in Moseley very briefly a couple of years ago. Such a lovely guy, taken from us too soon. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Paul xxx

We met at CPSA Trade Union Conference, where you also met my mum June Duncan. There we had so many laughs and put the world to rights. When you moved to London you lived with my Mum, you lived at my flat in Hartington Road and for a short while shared the flat above the shop in Cecil Road - all good times and memories for which I thank you. Rest in peace my friend xxx

I also worked with Paul at DHSS on Shakespeare Street, Nottingham in the good old 80's. They literally were the good old days! Christmas office parties, fancy dress pub crawls etc. There are many of us still work thete who were shocked and saddened to hear of Pauls passing.
RIP my old friend.

Met Paul through Jim in the early nineties and had many nights out laughing, drinking and enjoying life to the full. Have had many a "chat" about things on Facebook in the recent years.

Cannot believe you are gone Paul - always in my thoughts and wish you a peaceful rest.

I only knew Paul a short while, when I moved to Birmingham, although I didn't know him, he came along with jim to move me and my house 200 miles. He made me feel welcome, made me laugh, made me cry through laughing, he was a really good man who shouldn't of been taken this soon, he would help anyone out. We lost touch when I moved back to the north east but glad I found him again through Facebook, only to lose to touch for good.
Paul's mam...... You raised a perfect gent, I'm so sorry for your loss but try not to be sad, be proud, because Paul has touched many peoples hearts and everybody has fond happy memories of him. R.I.P Paul xxxxxxxxxxx

I first met Paul in 1985 at Shakespeare St DHSS and he was very much a larger than life character.I lost touch for many years but with the magic of social networking, made contact again and it was obvious he was a much loved work mate and friend.My heartfelt sympathies to all his family during this terrible time he will be missed

Paul, I'll always remember the fun I had with you and Jim back in our Vodafone days. Be it going on one of Jims many trips/outings/nights out to doing the YMCA at my wedding reception. The world is a sadder place without you, all who new you can confirm that. Wherever you are now, I hope you're causing mischief and having fun. Rest well xxx

I worked with Paul at Vodafone but we never really knew each other outside of work....or even that well inside of work come to that! Then I went to visit him in hospital at his first admission at the beginning of the year on behalf of his BFF and from there we caught up on FB and he knew that if he needed anything, he could call on me, me being geographically closer than his family or his friend Jim. The hospital visit was only short as it was "out of hours" but even in that short time, he made me smile and made me feel special. Nobody will ever call me "sweet heart" the way he did ever again...not the usual "sweetheart", he pronounced it as two distinct words "sweet" and "heart" as though he really meant the sentiment that went with it. I'm not saying this just because he has now left this mortal coil, he really did exude an unspoiled and genuine "aura" for want of a better word. I just wish I had known him better and for longer.
Don't worry about your Mum, she is being well supported and looked after.
Sleep well Paul, hopefully we will all meet up again one day "on the other side".

We may not have seen each other in the last few years but we did talk on fb. I will always remember his cheeky remarks or should I say sarcasm and even though he could annoy me at times and often embarrass me, he always made me laugh in the end. I have so many fond memories of the days when he was our neighbour and the fun times we all had together as a family. He gave me support in bad times and I am proud to say that he was my friend.I will miss you Paul but you will always hold a special place in my heart. RIP xxx
