Default av8 Paul Paul Howard sad news

I am a very good friend of Paul & Marge Howard from Sagamore Beach MA, better known as av8Paul. Paul and Marge are out here in Arizona vacationing. As I know how much you all meant to Paul I am bringing you all very sad news.

Unfortunately Paul Howard passed away last night Feb 16, 2011 @ 11:00 pm in Fountain Hills AZ do to a heart attack. I want you all to know that he had checked off another one of his “bucket list” by going to the Grand National with his roadster and his side kick Marge. They spent the day Tuesday driving the heck out of the car with the top down, rattling the great pipes on his car enjoying their time together. Yesterday Feb 16, 2011 Paul meet with some of his AZ car buddies going to breakfast then working on their car and doing what he loved most talking car talk.>>
>>
Marge is doing as well as can be expected. She will have Paul cremated here in AZ and be holding a ceremony once she is back in MA with her family. Pauls car and trailer are here safe and we are working on who and how to get the car back home to MA. Please feel free to spread this news to all that know this wonderful man. Also call and or email me as I can keep you posted.>>
>>
Paul’s passion for his wonderful family, good friends and the car world will be a big loss. But do remember what Paul always said “if they are two loud, your to old.” So every time you here a great set of pips you know Paul will be smiling down on all of us.>>
>>
>I only log in to the HAMB as I know Paul has many friends here in this fourm. I will not be checking this site but feel free to email me at deniseham@cox.net as that is an email I am always on for further uodates to Paul and his coming services.>

I'm sorry to hear this... I had never met him but always thought our paths would cross at some point. It's good to here that he got to enjoy the perfect roadster weather we're having one last time - the best send off possible.

I'm shocked and saddened to read this news. We had just talked about meeting up at Loring this summer.

My deepest condolences to Marge and family, Paul and his AV8 will be missed

Oh WOW that is sad news. He was always fun to be around. He drove the wheels off of his roadster. He was a hero of mine.

RIP to a fellow Hot Rodder that I never had the pleasure to meet. I am happy that he spent his last days doing what he loved and condolences to his family.

So sad to hear.

Paul was one of my hotrod mentors.

His roadster was a HUGE inspiration for my coupe build.

My best memory was when he and Marge came to my house in Rhode Island for the clHAMBake. My oldest daughter was only a couple years old and she was running out of the shop and she tripped and fell and scraped her knee. Before I or my wife could run over to see her, there was Paul kneeling down and holding her in his lap, making sure she was ok...

Godspeed my friend.
