  1. I am saddened to learn of Paul’s passing. Paul was a teacher and if one was to stop describing him that way, Paul would be okay with that. He set the bar of teaching excellence at a height that few are able to attain. Most of his peers and students hold him up as the best worked with or were taught by. His style was quietly demanding. He expected your best because he gave you his best. Many students experienced a positive change in their academic endeavors as a result of the “Keat Affect”. Paul was a good friend that I shared many smoke breaks, the occasional beer and many rounds of golf with. We have did not see much of each other these last few years. I will forever cherish the memories. Hamilton has lost a great man.

    God Bless
