Rest In Peace "Squeeze Ball" Paul
« on: December 21, 2015, 06:03:11 am »
 Just got the sad news tonight. Not sure if anyone else would post it here, but I will. It's not the handle he used to go by on here years back. It's the name I gave him when we first met. If memory serves me right, I first met him at Waconia. He would come over, and swap squeeze ball primers for spark plugs. Neither one of us had much money. Kind of hit it off, and became pretty good friends. He did a lot for the vintage community, and many different charities. Deep down, his heart was in the right place. I hope everyone remembers him for the good things he did. I know I will.

 Rest in peace Paul. May you be at rest now.

 You will be missed. :'(
Ignorant people find me irritating. Isn't that precious

It takes dedication, and commitment to make a difference..

Please don't expect me to take you seriously, if your tinfoil hat is leaning to the far left,,,,,

 and mercury is not a good replacement for tinfoil,,,,

Have a nice day!

    I'm glad it was you Don.

    The man will be missed.
    He was one of the first few guys I met in this silly hobby of ours and I wouldn't have met many of you if it weren't through him.

    Hope even those who had a passing conflict with him can see the smiles that he put on so many peoples faces.

    I was lucky enough to call him "brother from another mother"

    Chad. I guess you could say I met you through him. A lot of people asked the day of these pictures. "Who is the dude in the chair"? First time that I remember meeting you.




    I believe around this time, was the beginning of the end of the whole vintage family as we knew it.

    Please, out of respect, keep the comments positive, or keep them to yourselves. He deserves that much.

    I met Paul in 09 at Waconia.  I saw him every year since at Waconia, and sometimes Ben too.  We would talk on the phone about once a year and I ran the Rat rod contest on his site for a couple years.  He was always funny and extra nice to us.  It was never hard to find him at Waconia with that animal pelt hat of his. 
    He will be greatly missed.
