I first met Paul while working at the DEA Office in Bangkok Thailand. Paul was born in Thailand and of course was a fluent Thai Speaker. Paul was a very humble man and was very proud of his wife Joy and children. Paul was very helpful to the newly assigned agents in Thailand and helped us to understand the nature and ways of the Thai people. May he Rest in Peace and may his family know how many lives he touched.
