Paul Thielsen

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I report that my very dear friend and co-worker, Paul Thielsen has passed.  Paul leaves behind his wife, Julie, his daughter, Dorothy, and countless numbers of friends and co-workers who will miss him dearly.  Paul has been my mentor in my career, my best friend, and the rock who I could depend on, no matter what the situation happened to be.  Paul set the standard for perfection in his home life, as well as in his professional life.  He was, without question, the absolute best at what he did.  He was a loving husband, a thoughtful an caring father, and the kind of friend most people could only hope to have.  The shoes he leaves behind can never be filled, only admired and looked up to as the rest of us strive to achieve the standards of life that Paul demanded every day for himself.    

As you can imagine, the financial stress on his family that comes along with a tragedy like this in daunting, to say the least.  I know that many of his friends and co-workers have reached out to me, wanting to know what they can do to help.   No amount, if you are able, is to little, and would be greatly appreciated.  

Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to show your support in another way, or if you would simply like to share stories and thoughts regarding my friend, Paul.   

You will be missed, but never forgotten, my friend.  Rest peacfully, Paul.
