  1. Dear Lynn, Robert, Ryan, Allison and James
    In so many ways your father worked to make this world a better place. I am sure he now has a wonderful reward in heaven.. You have my condolences.

  2. Pustelnik Family… Had the joy of playing softball with Paul for several years and thought of him as a great friend. My heart breaks at this news and you are all in my thoughts and prayers. He was a great guy and I’ll miss him.

    1. Paul was a great guy , calming influence , and recently in the last couple years very inspirational and lover of life. I too was a teammate for several years on that softball team and considered Paul a good friend ! My condolences to his family , he is much missed ! -Larry Zavis

  3. Paul was an amazing guy. I played little league with him and years later on the same softball team with Larry and Drew. Always in a good mood with a smile on his face. He will be missed. I will have all of Paul’s family in my prayers.

  4. I am so sad to hear of Paul’s passing. We were neighborhood friends and shared a love of music. When Pink Floyd’s The Wall came out in 1979, he and I wore the album out in his basement. As the others have said, he was always a kind and gentle soul. Shine on you crazy diamond.

  5. I am so deeply, deeply sorry. Paul was a rare gift to this world. I am forever changed by knowing him and my heart is broken.

  6. I had the honor of working with Paul at a small software company in Naperville IL for a few years. Paul was a joy to work with. So very creative, insightful, and thoughtful, he brought a calming sense of peace to our team. I will always remember his genuine smile and kindness. My deepest condolences to his family.
