There is where he attended schooling and graduated from Moses Lake High School class of 1968. Paul started working for the Liquor Store in 1975 and dedicated 21 years of service as Manager. Through his job he shined at his natural ability, which was, the craft of conversation. He was a people person. He, on many occasions, was asked for his expertise advice on which beverage would complement a special event, dinner, taste palette or budget. Paul was charismatic and could carry a conversation with anyone. He never met a stranger. Paul’s first child born in 1972 was a son named, Christopher. In 1980, Paul married Gloria (Guzman) Martinez. Together they shared 17 years of marriage and 3 children: Monica, Paul and Roxanne. Paul was an exceptional father. He was kind, patient and a great provider. He was attentive, firm, and supportive. All of his children were special to him. He loved them unconditionally. Prior to Paul’s health condition, he spent a lot of time building, reconstructing and renovating. There wasn’t a skill Paul couldn’t master. If it could be built, Paul could do it. He enjoyed helping his family and friends with his work. He found great satisfaction in their happiness. Paul was true and honored his many friendships with a sincere heart. His generosity never went unnoticed. Many people have said that Paul was like a “father-figure”. He would take care of you, console you, feed you, scold you or offer advice. Paul received the best in-home care possible by his beloved sisters Hermelinda and Oralia. For 7½ years, they dedicated their life to him. They ensured his needs were met and he was a top priority. Paul was extremely blessed to have selfless, caring, devoted sisters.
