Paul Posner was a man witty and intelligent; prone to outlandish, imaginative flights of fancy. He was generous of spirit and always had something to share, usually a good joke or two. He loved music, and was particularly passionate about opera, big band swing, and jazz. He sang loudly with gusto and mostly off-key, but you'd be hard-pressed getting him to admit it.
He liked his poker and the occasional board game, too. He laughed with a big ol' guffaw that shook his entire body. And while he could always laugh at himself, 90% of the time he was probably laughing at you, too!
Among his many accomplishments, Paul was a former Midwest Regional Representative for Youth of Unity, an Eagle Scout in the Order of the Arrow, and a Rockhurst University graduate. Most recently, he worked as an adjuster for the Internal Revenue Service.
Paul is survived by his mother, Betty' older brothers Thomas and Russell; nieces Stacy and Karie; and his surrogate son, Joe.
For those of us who really knew him, Paul was a complex man whom we loved and embraced with all of his lovely flaws.
