Paul was along time member of Trout Unlimited and worked hard as a volunteer for the organization. The chapter is now
called the Ernie Nester Chapter of Trout Unlimited. His friends and fellow volunteers will miss his interests in returning trout to Blue Creek and other streams. He was a fine man.

There are so many memories I don’t know how to narrow them down! I think I’ll go way back to the 1960s. Paul along with Barbara were my youth leaders. They taught us kids that you could have fun, good clean fun, and still be a Christian. That lesson has stayed with me all these years. I’m 67 now. The other thing they did was encourage us to participate in the church in any way we could. I loved Paul like I love my brother! This old girl will miss him terribly when I go home for a visit!
