Paul was employed in various jobs until his return to his love of farming at Griffeth Farms for his brother John and special nephews, John II, Matt, and Steven.

He will be remembered also a good cook, an avid shopper, a loving and devoted brother, husband, father, and especially in his role of “Grampy Paul”.
