Tell us about your hobbies and family

I am the blessed father of four wonderful children. My eldest daughter, Brittany, is married to a RUF pastor to young adults at Columbia University in New York City.  My second daughter, Cortney, is serving on the mission field in Nicaragua.  My only son, Paul Jr, works in Manhattan for a software technology company and lives In Brooklyn.  My youngest daughter, Katelyn, is a Junior at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg.  I have been married to my lovely and remarkable wife, Beverly, for nearly 33 years.   My favorite thing to do in my spare time is to fix things.  I love to figure out how things should work when they are broken and devise a way to repair them.  This turns out to be a hobby that can save you a bunch of money.

What famous person are you most likely to be mistaken for?

When I wear my beard, I have been told that I resemble "The most interesting man in the world."
