    We were extremely saddened to hear of Paul’s death. He and Leslie were great neighbors to us in the Poet/Philosophers neighborhood in Baton Rouge in the late 1970’s-early 1980’s when we were all starting our families. Paul and Tim ran many miles together around the LSU lakes in their quest for physical fitness. Our condolences, prayers, and best wishes to Leslie, the three daughters, and their families. May God bless you all.
