  3. Sandy, so sorry to hear about Paul. Great Man and one I admired as did many others.
    Peace and comfort for you and your Son’s Family.

  4. Paul was one of the nicest and caring people I’ve ever known. He and I met when I worked for the Oklahoma State Boar of Pharmacy and he at OBNDD. We often saw each other at Life Church and other places over the years after retirement. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family for this great, God loving man who I admired greatly.

  6. Sandy and Kevin, we were stunned to hear of Paul’s death. We know how much this hurts and we sympathize with your sorrow and sadness. You and Paul and Kevin were some of the very first people to welcome us to Edmond 24 years ago. Eric and Kevin become fast childhood friends so seeing you and Paul was frequent and very enjoyable. Paul was an excellent mentor to boys and teenagers and had a very positive influence on our son Eric. We will always be grateful to Paul for that influence. Paul was an excellent leader of men. Personally I always admired Paul’s calm way of discussing a subject and enjoying his well constructed thoughts. When we had differences of opinion it was always a constructive experience. He had a great smile and also a subtle and great sense of humor. Paul was such a good volunteer and he always was helping others. For our family there is no better tribute to a good man like Paul then one who was a dedicated and very loving family man, great co- worker and a man who served his country in a military capacity for years. Before our oldest son Sean joined the Army National Guard at only 17 years old, he consulted with Paul about his military experience. Paul always found time to listen and discuss with those who sought his wisdom. The Williams family want to express our deepest sympathy to Sandy and Kevin and Paul’s entire family he loved so dearly. We will miss Paul greatly, and we will always remember him and his kind heartened ways. May God bless the Robinson family with peace in the coming days.

    I was sadden to hear that Paul passed away. He was always there when we needed him to do a drug presentation for the DARE Program. I just had to call him and he was there. Over the years he helped us training DARE Officers from 30 different states and 7 foreign countries. Paul was a great presenter and an even greater friend. Everyone always enjoyed his presentations. He just had away of connecting with the officers no matter what state they were from. He always had a joke. Loved playing music to get pumped up for his presentations and he had a killer smile for everyone. We were honored to present him the DARE Life Time Acheivement Award for all his work with the program. My heart goes out to you and the family. God Bless. Lori Swanson, Oklahoma DARE.
