All of us at Lake Mishnock Preservation Association are saddened that we have lost Paul. He died Sunday, December 31, at Kent County Hospital after fighting health problems for many months. Nonetheless, he attended our last meeting November 13, 2012, with the use of a walker. As usual he and Mary made a full contribution to the discussion. Paul was always forward looking.

Paul and Mary were founding directors of LMPA. They worked harder than anybody to make sure we were professional and effective. They took care of all membership-related duties.

Paul will be greatly missed. All of us at the Lake Mishnock Preservation Association send our sincere condolences to Mary and her family.

Please read his obituary below.
