I am not sure how many of you knew him, but member Luap112 passed away this morning after hard fought battle with cancer. Paul was an active member of our Police Explorers Post here in Westwood for many years. He most recently served as an associate advisor for us. Two weeks ago Chief Chase appointed him as an Honorary Officer for all of his hard work for the town. Paul was most recently employed by the Mass General Hospital Security. The law enforcement field has lost an incredibly dedicated and caring individual. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

My husband worked with Paul at MGH...he is very sad about this news. I never even met him and am very sad also. You are so right 30 years old is way too young! To his family my heart goes out to you and you will be in our thoughts and prayers as well.

That's very sad, my thoughts and prayers certainly go out to his family, friends, and department. A tragic loss at such a young age.

Copcar65, thanks for posting. He loved Westwood PD and always wanted to be an Officer there.

Thanks to everyone for their kinds words, thoughts and prayers. Losing Paul has been hard on all of us that worked with him, especially the folks on our shift (12a-8a). Paul was in our thoughts and prayers everyday since he was diagnosed just 4 months ago. Between the short time and the fact that Paul JUST turned 30 has been very hard to accept. Paul was an inspiration to ALL of us as he kept his spirits high and always had a great sense of humor to the end.

R.I.P. Paul. Our friend, our brother, you will never be forgotten. 10/9/05
