Have your say
R.I.P. God Bless your soul Paul, was my school mate and i saw him the last a week before i came here,,,a gentle giant and lovely man ,,,will miss you Paul,,,,
Such a shame for a cracking lad. GSK took his role at the club where Paul was a popular fella and then he left the factory. Often seen outside the Farmers with a pint and a book. I hope you're now at peace Paul.
