Paul John Finken

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Brian Gilbert on November 14, 2006:

I roomed with Paul at West Point twice. First during plebe year and then again firstie year, when he was H-1 CO and I was his XO.

I remember Paul as:
- a loyal and dedicated friend
- a great athlete and a fierce competitor
- a natural, caring and thoughtful leader
- a superbly funny storyteller and prankster
- a perennial optimist with a smile even in the worst situations

My life is far better for having known Paul, he was truly one of a kind and he lived an exemplary life. I will miss him dearly.

Well done, be thou at peace.
