He attended Yale University around service in the U.S. Army, and obtained a teaching degree from the U of M. Starting as a math teacher in White Bear Lake, he became involved in computer science at Control Data then he helped found Cytrol Corporation where he remained until his retirement. An amateur ornithologist, a 2nd generation Mason of Templar Lodge #176 and the Scottish Rite, and a lifelong Republican recently turned Independent, Paul was also active in Land-o-Lakes Kennel Club and served as Show Chairman and owned Wellington Lhasa Apsos. Paul was most of all a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Few things gave him more joy than to attend his grandchildren's music and sports events.
