Paul and I were friends from high school. Even then he was a really nice guy who made you feel good when you were with him. He was a good man and the world will miss him.

Paul Christ will be in our hearts and memories forever-- He was a fine man-- son of Herb and Mary-- proud Husband of Mary Ann and proud Father. He loved his family, his Church, his SLUH classmates-- and his Irish heritage.. He was a joy to enjoy-- from Little Flower Parish/to Heaven

To The Family & Loved Ones Of My Good Friend, Paul: Paul was 'one of the good guys'. Thiugh I didn't get to see him much, whenever I did, it was as though we were never apart. My prayers are with you all as you endure this season of sorrow. May the peace of Jesus help you to get through it. Charlie Koetting

your loss is 'amply' shared in St. Louis. Also the joy of remembering very many days gone-by as he journied so well with his class of '56. Not gentle-'on the field' but gentle-in-life.

Paul has been our investment advisor for 12 years. His expertise and manner of doing business was beyond reproach. Beyond that, we thought highly of Paul and looked forward to his visits to the Chicago area. Paul was one of the friendliest people we’ve ever met and we will miss him. We know how much he loved his family and we're sure his passing will be heartfelt by family and his many friends. We are truly saddened by his loss.

The Christ family has my sympathy. I remember Paul at SLUH--Class of 1956. May he rest in peace.

Sorry to have lost another great UD classmate, football player, and alum -- my best to Mary Ann and family as they navigate their way through this great loss - but comforting to know that we now have another great UD ally up there putting good words in God's ears for us! Fred McEvoy (UD '62)

Paul and the Christ family are in our prayers. I went to Little Flower and SLUH with Paul and have particularly great memories of all the fun times playing football with Paul and neighborhood "gang" in the vacant lot across from Paul's house.

JOHN AND JOAN UREEL01/01/2013

OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE ENTIRE FAMILY. PAUL WAS LOVED AND WILL BE MISSED.

Will pray for you and your family

I was shocked to learn about Paul after seeing him here in Chicago on Dec. 19. He seemed as hale and hearty as ever. Please accept my condolences on your loss. I will miss his wise counsel. He can rejoin Dick Letscher and regale each other with tales of the class of 1956. Terry Hutton
