He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Anna Egyud; his daughter, Priscilla, of Berkeley, California and his son, David, of San Francisco and by four beautiful granddaughters, Maya, Elle, Coco and Maud.
Paul entered this life on June 15, 1918 on a farm in Indiana where he lived and worked until he entered college, earning a degree in metallurgical engineering from Purdue University. He served in the United States Navy during World War II, rising to the rank of lieutenant commander and sailing on the USS Kingsbury.

After the war Paul found work in the aerospace industry in Southern California, working at Harvill Corporation, North American and Hughes Aircraft Corporation, where he worked on the Surveyor project, among other satellite projects. He retired from Hughes in 1983 as a senior scientist and enjoyed traveling and playing golf as often as he could. He loved classical music and was a faithful supporter of the Downey Symphony Guild, having served on its board of directors in his retirement years. Paul lived in Downey since 1958 and was a member of St. Mark's Episcopal Church since that time.
