I did not even know he was ill. I have seen him in movies as well as commercials and always found him reliable and never unpleasant to listen to. Oklahoma has lost a wonderful man in my opinion and my heart hurts for his family.

I was not aware he was ill and was really sorry to hear such sad news. I had wondered why I had not seen him recently. I have seen him in t.v. movies on lifetime channel and many other things besides advertising for car dealers. He came across as very honest and trustworthy and a pleasure to listen to. My heart goes out to his family and I want to thank him for all the good things he did for Bixby and for Oklahoma as a whole. He will be missed.

I remember seeing him on T.V approx 6-9 mos ago, and I certainly could tell he was not well. He appeared to me, to have considerable weight loss, and his face appeared drawn, and slight but noticeble reduced muscle mass. I am so sorry to hear about his death, G-d rest his soul.

Paul was a good man. Had the pleasure of hunting with him years ago and most recently saw him at the Automax dealer in BA. He had been gone from the airwaves for quite a while battling his cancer and then thought he was string enough to come back, but you could tell he was not well. He was a charismatic guy and could have been a big time tv star. He was an extra in the series Dallas along with another Tulsan--Lee Gideon. Thoughts and condolences are with his family.

My heart goes out to Paul Newsom's family. I had the opportunity to meet him when I lived in Oklahoma City. He had such a great and wonderful personality.

We have had the priviledge of knowing Paul, Brenda and daughter Emma for several years. What an amazing, giving and hardworking gentleman Paul was. Our loss is Heaven's gain. We are better for having known Paul and will forever be thankful to have been in is life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brenda and Emma and the rest of his family and friends. His love to our family and service to our school and community will never be forgotten. God Bless you Paul. Our hearts are heavy and sad with the loss but we are encouraged by the knowledge that you are no longer in pain. You were a class act!!

We have lost a great man. I had the pleasure to mix gun powder and business with Paul on a few occasions. He was fun to be with and hard to beat busting clay pigeons.

What a wonderful gentleman. For the last 10 or so years, Paul enriched our lives with laughter and a kind, caring demeanor. He was very strong in his faith, always thankful for his many blessings. Paul was truly a great outdoorsmans, that will be missed. Each hunting season, as we go a field, we will think of Paul. Our prayers our with Brenda and Emma at this time.

My condolences to Brenda, Bo and the rest of the Newsom family. I learned Paul was fighting cancer several months ago; and was hoping he was doing better. So sad to hear of his passing. Of course, Paul was a positive ambassador for hunting and fishing; but above that he was an ambassador for Oklahoma.
