I knew Paul personally although hadn't seen him for a while (read; a long time), and he was a true gentleman to everyone he met, from the rich man to the beggar in the street, he had time for them all. He wasn't cowed by titles and the trappings of fame, true to his roots is how I would best describe him. He could have gone even further than what he'd already achieved in a relatively short life but he'd never have fitted well into the political world; he was too truthful.
I was shocked, stunned and very saddened by the news of his passing and can only hope and pray that his family can take some comfort from his achievements and the depth of the tributes being genuinely being paid to him in their hour of loss.
R.I.P Paul, the world is duller without you.
