    Paul Masserant will surely be missed. He was always so energetic and filled with life.
    I enjoyed our talks when he would stop to visit while taking his walks around the community.
    He was a very talented man and would always offer his opinion to find a better way to solve a problem.
    It is clear to see why so many loved him.
