    Paulie, was a busy man working long strenuous hours, feeding and caring for cattle along with doing fieldwork and other ventures. He was and excellent machinery operator and maintainer person. His contagious smile and laugh drew you near and visiting him was the best thing a person could do in a day. Such a generous individual one appreciated rubbing shoulders with. His heart revealed appreciation, concern and love for others.
