Myself and Paul were work colleagues but its our conversations about music that I remember him for, it was our shared passion. I could never convert him to Bruce Springsteen but I honestly lost count of the CDs he got me of Springsteen bootleg concerts. A keen photographer too I remember giving him grief about the ridiclulous times he got up to take photos at ” just the right time”. But above music and photography it’s his warmth and infectious smile that I will remember most. He was a good man one of the best and all that knew him will miss him dearly.
Judy my wife and has been living with a Brain Tumour since 2012 (Anaplastic astrocytoma). I could not believe it when Mandy told me that Paul also had a tumour. Pauls tumour was a glioblastoma which is just about the highest grade you could get. Its a coincidence I wish never happened.
We were both deeply moved and honoured that Paul’s family requested that instead of flowers donations are made to The Brain Tumour Charity – The Judy Dcruz Fund.

Since Pauls funeral donations from his friends and family have totalled £2051.25 and this has resulted in Judys fund breaking through the key milestone of £50,000.
The fund now stands at £50,181.97
Every penny counts in our fight to find a cure to this disease which is the biggest cancer killer of children and young people under 40.
