Paul was a good and long-time friend of mine, and he and I spend many a fun night out in Chi-town iin the 80’s and 90’s before I moved to Portland, OR. I was just out to Chicago in August of 2019 and we had a great couple of nights reminiscing about the good old days, ate some great food and had a great time— in retrospect I am so happy I made the trip—as his positive energy and perpetual smile will live on in my mind forever. There is no one who enjoyed and squeezed the best out of life, everyday, than Paul. The best friend and wingman I had when I lived in Chicago and his spirit will live on forever. The best to Andrew and the other Basa family members you have my deepest condolences and prayers. Kevin And Sheila Geraci, Portland, OR
