We have very fond memories of visits to Paul, Joan, and the boys in Maryborough. At bedtime, Paul would tell us the most fantastic bedtime stories. But they were not from a book. These entrancing stories came from his incredible, imaginative mind. As children, these family get-togethers were special, happy times that we won’t forget.

Vale P C Maher; a good friend for over 60 years and a former candidate for my wife’s affections.
We had lots of fun as med. students and young resident doctors.
Paul’s unique sense of humour kept us all entertained.
In the early seventies we were both in London and he frequently visited Anne and myself.
He wasn’t sure which medical field to follow and I was able to intercede for him to get a Surgical training position at the Alfred hospital and he became a qualified surgeon.
After several career moves, we met up again in retirement and enjoyed many memorable lunches with our friends from med school.
Paul was a great raconteur!
We can now imagine him serenading the Celestial angels.

Paul – a truly unique & close friend to us, with his charm & unpredictable wit, which forever kept us amused.
A talented surgeon who could fix a blocked ear with a paper clip or stitch a forehead up, after a big dinner party!
We shared many fun times together.
Geoff & Janie Williamson (& family)
Our fondest memories of Paul with his fine and inquiring mind, wicked and whimsical wit and, above all, a huge compassionate heart which railed against red tape obstructing an obvious and good outcome.
Paul has left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of those he tended, mended and befriended. Such a welcoming, affectionate and amusing presence, Paul truly used his many talents to make the world a better, more just place.
Rest In peace, dear Paul, assured that we will still hear your voice, whether singing or encouraging our moral compass in the right direction.
Fran Hogan and Mike Waugh
Dearest Paul, your memory shines and twinkles through many years, Canberra, Ballarat and Maryborough. Always engaging, questioning and prompting a different view of any topic. We treasure the memories and send love to Joan and family.

Paul was a fun, caring and loveable person who I was delighted to share many hours with over the past few years. Dancing, singing, walks and his caring of others shone through everyday. His happiness radiated around the room. It was a privilege to become involved with his family and friends during the final years of his life.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon the fields.
And until we all meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Thanks for the memories.
The Red Rose Cafe, always a personal favourite, will forever be special to me. Wish I had met you earlier in my life but you were a special, caring, endearing man. Thank you for being you.
