  1. Dear Rey and family, Your sorrow at Paul’s death will certainly exceed mine, but I will miss an old friend and professional associate. I met Paul as a representative of Geophoto in the mid 1950’s when I was conducting surface geology studies in northern Canada. I always enjoyed meeting and talking at conventions and meetings over the years. He was a great guy and will be missed.
