Condolence: Uncle Paul taught me so many cool things when I was a kid. It was Paul the got me interested in understanding how things work. Mostly by interesting me in radio control cars, and planes and flying, and especially computers. I had a huge advantage over my peers when I was in high school. I think I had one of the very first Apple computers. Paul was not just my uncle, but my mentor. That love for wanting to understand how things work is part of me, and always will be. I wanted to be just like him when I grew up, and in many ways I did.
I've been self employed most of my adult life. After losing a business, I went back to being an employee, with much chagrin. I will never forget what Paul said. Don't worry, you'll be back. You just need a little time to get yourself back together. It's in your blood'. I shrugged it off, but what he said stuck with me.
He was right, I did feel that pull entrepreneurial pull again. Now, 12 years later, I'm at the top of my game, running my own business.
Thanks Uncle Paul.
Condolence From: Tom Nelson, Sunbury, Ohio
Condolence: After many years, Paul and I recently got re-acquainted at Champions Tennis Club. We talked about our wives, our children, and Paul's projects. I was looking forward to seeing Paul on the tennis court again next summer. He was a nice guy.
My sincere condolences to you, Barb, and to the whole family.
Condolence From: Ty Pollak, Dayton, Ohio
Condolence: I am very sorry for the Wiese family's loss. I had the pleasure of working with Paul over the last 18 months on engineering projects. He was a wealth of practical knowledge and enthusiasm for problem solving. I'm sure he will be missed by all who interacted with him.

Condolence: Many thoughts and prayers are with you Barb and family! So very shocked and sad to hear of Paul’s passing. I have many fond memories of Paul coming to the house to play tennis and also playing with him!
I think he found it therapeutic to take a break from work and come out to the house to play. Despite this very sad time, I also deeply appreciate having known Paul with many fine memories. Paul had such a brilliant mind and will be missed greatly.

Condolence: My deepest sympathies to Barb and the family. Paul was one of the more memorable people that I’ve ever had the pleasure to be acquainted with. Every time we spoke since I first got to know him back in the early 90’s, I came away with a little nugget of wisdom or insight. Prayers for peace and comfort to you all.

Condolence From: Richard & Judy Schilg, Westerville, Ohio
Condolence: I came to know Paul in 1986 about 32 years ago. He was one of the greatest influences on my life. Paul was my first client in my new company then and that position was his with pride now for 32 years. Those who know Paul know that he was hot or cold about a person and if you earned his trust you were in the inner circle for life. We had lunch nearly every other month for nearly 32 years. We served on each other's board of directors and had many business ideas shared and surprisingly even few would turn into pursuits, LOL. He was the definition of a friend. One of the most loyal people I know. As my son Rick grew up and started his own business, Paul took him in under his wing and blessed him with his knowledge and wisdom in electronic engineering and my son became one of Avcom's clients now for several years. I was deeply saddened to lose Paul as I know all of his family has too. In all of my business life Paul has been there in start up and growth and in good times and bad. He had a strong sense of right and wrong with a wisdom that came from his own struggles in life. Not one person is free of struggles and Paul was no exception but Paul was an overcomer. He was never a quitter, even when at times he should have, Haha. He had the inner strength of a lion. His qualities tell you that he was an inspired man. He lived out his principals and beliefs in everything he did with passion and vigor. His work here on earth may now be done, but his spirit lives on now in the lives of the people he touched - his family and friends!! He is now in all our memories in a safe place there and where each of us can visit him anytime. God be with you Barb! Judy and I are praying for you and your family for strength and peace.
Condolence From: Dale Conklin, Lewis Center, OH
Condolence: I feel blessed to have known Paul for the past 12 years through our connection with tennis. Several of us at the club would meet with Paul after tennis to try to "solve the world's" problems, or at least complain about them. He was quick witted and had a contagious laugh. Between his lovely wife Barb, his family, his job, and his hobbies, he was truly the happiest man I have ever had the privilege to meet. He will be sorely missed.
Condolence From: Brad Hance, Westerville, Ohio
Condolence: I was shocked and saddened to hear of Paul's passing this morning. He always had a smile on his face and a fresh idea in his mind. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Weise family, as they deal with his passing.
Condolence From: Joan and Dave Hornbeck, Columbus, Ohio
Condolence: We were so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. Dave will come to the showing but Joan will not be there. She has surgery on Monday and cannot be around crowds. Our prayers are with you Barb. Joan
Condolence From: Patricia Ryan Green, Galena, Ohio
Condolence: I am so shocked and saddened to hear the news of Paul's passing. I have such fond memories. Paul was one of the first of Malcolm's friends that I met. After flying gliders we, with Malcolm, Paul and a couple of other buddies went to G&R in Waldo where they proceeded to try and gross me out. Also, remember windsurfing at Hoover and hiding our beer in socks. Paul was the first one to recognize that Malcolm and I were meant to be together. He was a very special man and may you find comfort in the memories. He will always be with you and you will carry your love forever in your heart. My prayers are with you as you travel this road of grief.

Condolence: So very sad to hear of Paul's sudden passing. I was looking forward to playing tennis with/against him next season at Champions. Paul was always a welcome addition to our business lunches at Ohio Semitronics, Inc. He was always quick to share an idea that might expedite our product development as we ventured into the SMT arena. Our prayers are extended to Barb, Scott and Brian and the entire family at this most difficult time
Condolence From: Phil and Evelyn Morrison, Westerville, Ohio
Condolence: Paul was like a brother to me. I will miss him at work. He was a serious thinker but we had some really great fun times. You could always depend on Paul to help you no matter what you needed. He took great care of his business, employees and most of all his wonderful wife (Barb) and family. He will always be with us in spirit! God Bless you Paul! You are now on your new journey! Barb and family you are in our daily prayers.

Condolence: I was shocked and saddened to hear about Paul. I had only known him for the past 4 years and was fortunate to have many enjoyable dinner meetings with him as he helped turn my crude “hobby electronic designs” into a functional and successful product. I feel blessed to had gotten to know him and privileged that I was able to learn so much from him. Some of his knowledge and wisdom will always live on in my future endeavors.
