  1. In memory of Paul who was a very close friend during our early days with Nat West Bank. I recall fondly how his arrival at my first branch in Bedminster, Bristol livened up my working and more importantly my social life. It was also my privilege to be his best man at his marriage to Annette

  3. Senior Tart (Dad). Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Although you have gone you will not be forgotten. I know you will always be looking down steering me in the right direction, be it on the golf course or up in the air! A funny, kind, caring and caring Dad has left for pastures new but will be forever in our hearts. – Love you lots Senior Tart!!! xx

    Rest in Peace Paul.

  5. Happy memories of weekends spent with you when the children were younger. Enthusiastic games of rounders with Paul being very competitive but always good fun.
    Rest in Peace.
    Linda & family.

  6. So sad that Paul has been taken from us so suddenly.

    Our thoughts are with his immediate family at this distressing time.

    Keith is so pleased that he was able to enjoy Paul’s company and 3 rounds of golf, in between ‘Lockdowns’, shortly before he was taken ill. Happy memories alongside all the other times spent together at Bramshaw golf club.

    Keith & Yvonne Gardner
  7. Special memories of a very dear friend. Our two families shared some good times together and Paul cooked some great Chinese food for us. We had some great laughs over the years.

  10. Paul was a fantastic character – a pleasure to work with and had a great attitude to life. I loved the field visits we made together – he kept me fully entertained! Working with him in Bournemouth was a special time. A true gentleman – he will be missed. My condolences- such a sad time.

  11. Wonderful memories of a dear friend who we met while on holiday 20 years ago and the great weekend catch ups we had at the Miramar in Bournemouth we will miss you. RIP Paul

  12. Some people live life in a way that if someone ever spoke ill of them no-one would believe it – Paul was such a man. He was a true gentleman and always ready to make people laugh and feel valued.

    Cookie, you are going to be sadly missed by so many people who were fortunate to have known you. You were a special person and we thank you for all the fun, friendship and laughs we’ve shared over a bottle or two over the years! You were taken too early, but you will always have a special place in our hearts.

    Mike & Sue Bristow (Mrs B!)
  13. There are so many memories of my dear, dear brother Paul. He was a terrible tease, had a wicked sense of humour, was great fun and extremely loyal. He was a very special person and I will miss him.

  14. I was fortunate to sit opposite Paul for many of his final banking years and valued the friendship we developed. Mid week golf, at Bramshaw, became the norm through the summer months with customer appointments managed accordingly – followed by the odd beer or two.
    In later years through our ‘Heron Crew’ gatherings Joyce got to know Paul and always enyoyed his take on life and sense of humour.
    A good friend taken too early.
    Our thoughts are with Annette and family.

    Geoff & Joyce Davies
  15. Annette, Sarah, Elliott, There are no words that can describe how absolutely devastated I am by the loss of your dear husband and dad. Paul was an amazing man. I don’t think I EVER saw him without a smile on his face. From the first time we met when I came to stay with you when Sarah and I flew together with Virgin, to my frequent trips over the years to see my bestie when Paul and Annette would always pop in for a cuppa and a slice of cake, without fail! I feel privileged to have known Paul and to have been part of his and your family’s life. We’ve had and will have many wonderful times. Those to come will be very different, but I hope there’s some comfort in the wonderful memories we have shared. My heart goes out to you all at this incredibly difficult time, All my love

    Sarah Hanneken
  16. Paul, you have gone far too soon.

    We worked together, enjoyed golf, good food, wine and much telling of stories. You, always with a twinkle in your eye and a smile as you related your tale. Your many stories of great times with Annette encouraged us to take the plunge into cruising. Thank you for giving us that push.

    Raising a glass as we think of you!

    Annette, Sarah, Elliott and all the family our love and thoughts are with you.

    Ian & Sue Brown
