Kuhn -- Paul Henry Kuhn. Our hearts were broken when Paul Henry left the building on August 2, 2000. We all knew he was too young at 50 to be moving along. He did so peacefully at his home. Paul traveled through life with the warmth of his spirit touching everyone he met. We thank God for his unique talents as a musician and songwriter that made us smile for more than 35 years. Paul's professional painting business helped keep Albuquerque beautiful. Paul lived in Albuquerque for 45 years. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elizabeth H. Kuhn and Werner W. Kuhn. He is survived by his sister, Elbertine Miner of Moab, UT; and a brother, Werner H. Kuhn of Albuquerque. Now, and for a long while, we're all singing the blues.
