Pat and family, Please know that you and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. I remember Paul as a kind man who was very proud of his children:) I loved HIS message at the end of his obituary - "...a lot to be thankful for." I know you are all thankful to have had him in your lives. I am sure he has influenced each of you in a special way. Take that gift and continue to make the world a loving place. Blessings, Mary Pat Ament

Deepest sympathies to the family of Paul Andresen. Paul is my first cousin. I am Adele (Frommelt) Nicks and my mother was his mother's sister. The Ott family had a beautiful legacy that was handed down to us children and grandchildren to be cherished. Many memories of fun with Aunt Gerry come to mind as I read Paul's obituary. I pray that Paul was met at heaven's gate by his mother and father and the entire Ott family. May he rest in peace. Adele

I remember Paul when he was Captain at 505 when I was growing up. Bob Waddick was his driver. Paul would let me look through the fire magazines that were stacked up in the storage closet on 2nd floor. I will always remember him walking to work when I was going to Washington and Senior. He was always friendly and ready to answer questions. He was a great man. Sorry for your loss.
