In Loving Memory of



Paul was known, respectecd and loved by many people around the globe for his love of family, friends, colleagues, computers (especially retrotech!), gaming and his unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

Throughout his life, wherever he went, Paul always made such a positive impression on the people he met, no matter their ages. From young school children who signed up for Code Club which, as an Acorn Ambassador, Paul ran (after school, one night a week introducing bright young minds to the joys and magic of coding!) to members of our eldest generations who wanted to explore this newfangled Internet thingy (but needed an incredibly patient, understanding and enthusiastic mentor!) and all ages inbetween, nobody could fail to be inspired, excited and enthused by his passion and love of computers and programming.

Paul was also the most loyal, honest and generous friend anyone could ever wish to have. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it.

The most caring, loving, gentle and humble person I have ever known, I was so lucky to have Paul in my life for almost 24 years. We loved, laughed (a lot!), cried and shared everything together. 

I miss you so much, baby, but you know I will find you one day and we will continue our eternal journey together. You will always be my inspiration, my best friend, my soulmate, my world…no matter what.

831 forever, my warrior.

Paul was one of the kindest, most caring people I have ever met. A man that, many years ago, shaped the person I have become today. Not only did he make my mum the happiest woman in the world, he brought structure and a family safe nest to my life filled with love, respect, kindness and care. It was truly what he portrayed and wanted for everyone, and he cared so much about the people who were around him. Paul was a friend, a brother and a father to me, I was a very lucky person to have had all 3 bonds and levels of relationships built into one. He educated me and was always there to help me if I needed it. People talk about walking the talk and how sometimes a lot of us need to walk the talk. Paul just walked and everything would just happen in front of our eyes. Not many people I know can speak volumes without having to actually talk about it. Anyone who followed in his foot steps knew this. Paul was never out to prove himself – his kind warm heart was always there to help. Most of us probably …

Stafford Leys Primary School 'Code Club'

This is the ‘leaving message’ Paul received from the children of Stafford Leys Primary School ‘Code Club’ after his 2 year Acorn Ambassador tenure was completed. These young brilliant minds adored Paul and were left so inspired and eager to explore computing and programming further as their education continued. To say Paul set them on fire is an understatement! …

I met Rebel (Tracie) through a crafting discord channel and we quickly became the best of friends. To me, Paul started out as the sweet voice in the background who made their nightly drinkies of hot chocolate and coffee. I started telling Tracie to say hello to the ‘Drinky Man’. Shortly after that, Paul joined our discord and would tell us all about his daily adventures in life and space. His caregivers were calling him ‘Mister Paul’ at the time. I was growing to know him more and more, as our ‘Drinky man, space adventuring, Mister Paul’. It seemed like fate that when I adopted our new dog, his name was already Mister… I asked Paul if we could name him Mister Paul and he said he’d be honored. A few weeks later, we adopted a puppy and named it Rebel after Tracie because we couldn’t have a Mister Paul without a Rebel. They’re two peas in a pod. Paul was the sweetest, most self-sacrificing and positive person I’ve ever met. I’d only known Paul for the last few years but he was integral to my daily life during that time and became my family. He was always curious …

It’s hard to find the words. Paul’s been my friend, colleague and mentor over the years. He inspired and taught me so much and I am forever grateful. We worked together and built a platform that has helped thousands of people to find work. The photo is from our business trip in New York. It was -22 degrees in the first week of January and bitterly cold but we enjoyed every minute of it. Paul was an amazing character with so much enthusiasm and determination. We worked a lot, Paul and I, many times late into the night doing deployments, fixing things and chatting over skype. Paul would even be working in the hospital on his laptop whilst receiving his chemo! He refused to let it get in the way of anything, even when we insisted he take a break. I still work on the very same platform we built together over 10 years ago now so I get to see his code and comments every day. It’s my job to make sure this part of his legacy lives on and helps many more people. I miss you mate. …

I had the pleasure of meeting Paul at Workvine a little over 6 years ago. He came across as someone kind, passionate about what they’re doing and very knowledgeable. In the little time I got to meet him he left such a strong impression on me. My heart goes out to Paul’s family and friends. …

Paul, what can I say? I’m so sorry that you had to endure this final part of your journey but admire that you did so with utmost dignity and bravery. My heart goes out to Tracie and your family together and of course your mum, dad, Deborah and her family. We may not have seen each other for quite possibly 35+ years but I have fond memories of playing together as children, holidays together as family and more recently communicating through Facebook. As sad an occasion as it was, I’m glad I was able to attend your final resting ceremony with my wife, Mandy, to say goodbye and offer our support to your families and friends. Wishing you restful peace for eternity. Sleep well, cousin. …

I got to know Paul about thirty years ago as he was my daughter’s first serious boyfriend. He impressed our whole family as a gentle, kind and caring soul who always treated her and everyone else with respect. Others have commented on his cowboy boots, black clothes and flowing coat, which is how I will always picture him: and of course the yellow Land Rover which I remember well. I have not seen Paul since that time but have been much moved by his determination to fight and his bravery in the face of his illness. I haven’t met either Tracie or Paul’s family but my heart goes out to you all in the loss of such a lovely man. I hope that the memories of so many people who loved Paul will bring at least a little comfort to you in these dark days. …

I met Paul when I started working at Experian in July 2019. His fierce intelligence was immediately obvious but he was always kind, caring, passionate about his work and eager to share his knowledge with others. He was one of a kind and I miss him. I’m very thankful that I had the privilege of meeting such a special person. …

I had the pleasure of working with Paul at Workvine and his knowledge and skill amazed me. Paul was such a lovely guy, so kind and caring. Paul spoke so passionately about his family, his dog and his interests and had many stories to tell. He really was a very interesting person. Paul will be missed by so many and remembered by all those he crossed paths with. He was a really special person, sending love to his family x …
