You always made me laugh you were a big part of our family and I will always remember you coming to the house going for rides on your motorcycle, the dancing hairs. The bolconstrictor, and the turkey to mention a few and many more fun memories! I love you always and miss you already❤️

    To my Hugo and Herbert family – we suffered quite a blow this week. While we know Uncle Paul is in a peaceful space now, we shall miss him and it hurts right now. As my dad, and Paul’s big brother, would say, though, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Let us all get going through this period together. Sean, Talia and Sean, we love you and we are here for you for whatever.

    Deepest sympathies in your loss. Paul always had a twinkle in his eye and smile on his face. He came into our family when I was 3 and was always my brother-in-law. We laughed a lot through the years…him reminding me of how I would argue with him when he teased me in his fun loving way. We shed tears together, last year, over the loss of my daughter both sharing the belief there is something greater than this world. God bless and rest.

    So sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. Paul was a friend for over 50 years and close to my family. Yes, he loved the trades and I often called him to talk me through how to fix various things. He taught me a lot. Paul, I will miss you and you always did and will have a place in my heart. RIP
