Age 76, passed away on September 16, 2017. He attended Maryknoll High School, earned a BS in Civil Engineering at University of Hawaii-Manoa, and served in the US Army as a Lieutenant. He also served as the Vice President of Belt Collins Engineering. He was a man of the highest degree of integrity and was honorably discharged in 1965 as a second lieutenant in the United States Army. Paul was a superb father who was dedicated to his spouse, children, extended family, and friends. He contributed much of his personal time to coaching little league baseball spanning over 40 years in Manoa Valley. His love for his family and leadership by example are a testament to the man he was. Those who had the honor of knowing him learned to love and respect their families by following the way he lived his life.
