Paul was among the nicest of students in our law class of 1977. I will remember him as a friend and gentleman with a smile and admirable legal mind. I send my sincere condolences to his family for their loss. He was a good guy in all manner.

Bonnie/Literski Family – I’m sorry for your loss. I knew Paul through my dad Phil Schulte, my memory of Paul are his punctual 11:15 phone calls on Saturday and Sunday mornings getting the current odd and lines on the football games. Only to have my dad tell him that his teaser parlay bets were sucker bets. : )

He’s got a friend where he’s going, and I’m sure my dad has a seat saved for him at the blackjack table up there.

Wilson Park Little League baseball, Don Bosco High School, UW-Whitewater, College Army-ROTC, High School Reunions & High School Class Golf Outings, gosh we had many encounters in our lives. I enjoyed Paul very much as a person & boy he was quite the athlete! He was a pleasant person to converse with & seemed to always take a genuine interest in other people. He treasured his Bonnie & seemed to defer commitments & decisions based on consultation with her for her perspective. Oh, I have some wild ‘n crazy memories with Paul too, because Paul was always up for discovery & keeping events lively. My friend, I’m sure you’ll enhance heaven to be even a better place.
