    Thank you for your service to this country!! Very few men make it to the rank that you did. I am still amazed that you drove from Creedmor to bowl in Raleigh on Wednesday evenings. I’m glad you did. It was always fun and challenging to bowl against your team with Dusty!! Great way for father and son to be together. Wish I could visit you today, but this virus has all of us scared. Rest in peace!!

    • Charlotte Baker Posted January 17, 2021 1:34 am

      Thankyou, Bill, and we understand. Paul enjoyed being with his bowling buddies.

    May God bless you, Charlotte, and the family. Thank you, Paul for so many things. You were more than a friend; you were a mentor and a father figure. I will not forget our great times bowling and on the golf course and especially the times you stayed late after bowling to talk to me when I so needed to confide in someone wiser than me.

  • Charlotte Baker Posted January 17, 2021 1:43 am

    Thank you Tony, for your thoughts and kind words.

    We have indeed lost a scholar and a great “gentleman”, so very sorry for your loss. They all should have been as good as Mr Paul.
