I’ll always have fond memories of Paul and the funny stories he shared. I had the privilege to work for him for many years and he will always be a character I’ll never forget. The trip around London in his convertible Bentley when the tubes were on strike that took four hours! To the …

Bye-bye, Paul.  I would like to remember you with this photo of your 60th birthday party. The best party ever! It has been nearly fifteen years since we first met and became friends. I always tried my best and wanted to help you to achieve the most memorable events. Although, you always had very …

Paul’s interest in his community was exemplary – I worked with him on his support for Christ Church (as a Churchwarden) and his advice, guidance and generosity were invaluable.  Practical, humorous, forgiving of honest errors, and wanting to see results. A good man, well remembered and I am sorry to hear of his death. …

I first met Paul over a beer one Sunday lunchtime with Mike Bentley at a squash club in north London in 1978  (Paul wasn’t playing, but I had been). At that time we were competitors, but both our businesses were very small then. We maintained a friendly competition, as well as inter-company darts challenges …

Paul was such a character.. a true legend. Paul left a huge mark on everyones lives.   I will miss all the jokes that came with daily cup of green tea.. and the same stories he kept telling over and over again.. or that he called everyone ‘sunshine’ especially when he’s forgotten someone’s name …

What can one say about Paul that has not already been said? It is never easy to summarise the life and achievements of any individual in a few words, yet alone those of someone who has contributed and attained so much as has Paul. He always offered his all (and more) in everything which …

Very sad to hear of Paul’s death. So many memories of our years as South Hampstead parents, in Hampstead and in Whitstable – Paul was a wonderfully warm, generous and entertaining host, so devoted to family and such a wonderful raconteur. Securing a table at The Sportsman was a magical feat – the boys …
