Way back in the seventys I would read the NW newsletter. Thre was always an artical from this guy named Wacko. He was a die hard vanner. Always encougering people to attend events. I finially got to meet him in person at the C of C in Seattle in 1992. We have spent a lot of time getting to know each other over the years. My first long distance event after I retired was Corn Cob in Southern Or. After the event I broke down and was able to stay with Paul and Sue while it was repaired. Last fall the last truck-in we attended together was Corn Cob. Once again I broke down while I was there and spent time with them again. We painted the livieng room and diningroom.

He was a great insperation to a lot of people and a huge asset to the National Truck-in board. I had the privelage of spending 2 weeks with Paul and Sue and Paul Jr. last month. He never gave up the fight. The last thing he said to me was see you in July.

My hart goes out to Sue, Paul jr, his dad and brother and sisters.

So very sorry to hear this. Judith, do you or anyone else here have their mailing address so I can get a card out to the Family?
Superbeast, yesterday morning Dawn and I were in Church also and the thought of Wacko jumped in my head so I said a prayer for him too.
I don't remember ever having the pleasure to meet Paul in person, sounds like I missed the opportunity to get to know a wonderful Vanner and his wife.
Deepest heartfelt condolences to Paul, Sue and their Family.

Deb--the other thread may have an address for the Wack family. I know I have it on my e-mail, I will look it up and send it to you later! And I believe you did meet him when he came to visit at camp at the last IL Nats. Check the pics--'course it was coffee time for you. hee hee

Judith--thanks for the info!

It was mid afternoon yesterday ,when via facebook, I was alerted to Paul’s passing. This was somewhat expected, so it was not a tremendous shock. But it is so very sad and now there is this tremendous void. I managed to tough it out through most of the day.
Later near bed time, I was on Vannin.com and ran across the photo’s that Howard posted of Chooie, Wacko and himself at Wrigley Field in February. It hurt seeing this man, this friend, so frail. When I got to Dave’s (Starlord) post and read that beautiful poem, I just couldn’t handle it any more, I broke down and cried . My loving wife was there for me, as I tried to sleep but I didn’t get much sleep last night.
Paul leaves a tremendous void in a whole lot of peoples lives.
I have been Praying for him and his family each night for three years, and will continue to Pray for Sue, little Paul and for his family and friends.
He will be missed like all of our friends, but in the vanning community he will really be missed.
A person would be hard pressed to find someone with more passion for this hobby of ours than our Wacko!!!
I will always remember the great, fun times shared with him, though I’d Prayed for more of these times, he was called home to the great van run in the sky.
God Bless you Paul for coming into our lives, and we’ll see you again.
Doug

Posted on Paul's Facebook,

If there was a Hooter's here, I would have, if there had been Vanner's here I would have, but alas, there wasn't.. so to adapt as Vanner's do, .I imposed on my, how do I say this without breaching security, my co-workers, and they all toasted Wacko with me, several times.... until today they did not know Paul, but today they all, as one, toasted ... Paul, Sue and little Paul, on THEIR courageous battle, and stand united with us, in honour of Wacko....and all he stood for, all he represented, and all he was, and for his immense family......
