Paul (Sr.): Paul's aunt, Ida, tells us: Paul was always ready to try anything. In his teens he trained and then traveled with a carnival in a sway pole act, very dangerous. He taught himself to ski (with homemade skis). He had a great personality, always cheerful - he enjoyed life, as short as it was. He was only 26 when he was killed in a Navy plane crash in Oregon, his wife Betty was 4 months pregnant with their son, Paul, Jr. (known as David - after being adopted by his stepfather, Steve Miller).
