I didn't really know Mr. Funk that well, but the people who I knew that knew and/or worked with him had nothing but good things to say about him. He made a difference! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends who are hurting and saddened by his loss and because they are and will continue to miss him dearly!

I was so very sad to hear about Paul, I had the opportunity to work along side him in Woburn and the pleasure of his friendship for many years. I was also very fortunate to work with his wife Marie in Stoneham they were both committed compassionate professionals. I looked forward to seeing Paul every year at the Paul Andrews Institute each summer and when I did he would fill me in on his children and his many grandchildren, he was so very proud of each of you. My deepest sympathy to his family and his children.

So sorry for your loss. Paul was such a wonderful, gentle, happy man. I so enjoyed working with him as a member of the Cape Tech School Committee. I was Superintendent of the Nauset Regional Schools retiring in 2015 and Paul and I always had some fun "behind the scenes" stories to share. I will miss his warm smile and laughter but won't ever forget him as a talented colleague! RIP Doc (his friendly nickname for me).

Dear Paul, Heather and Family. My wife and I send sincere condolences on the recent loss of Paul's father. My wife and I know what it like to both lose a father and know it is not an easy time for you now. Paul had lived an amazing life of 51 years in public education and the people he inspired in his 22 years as an educator is immense. I am sure someone owes a lot of who they are today to Paul's father's tutelage. Paul will live on not only in your thoughts, but in the memories of those he helped inspire too. God Bless.

To Betsy and the Funk family, I have always valued the personal and professional conversations Paul and I have shared over the years. He loved talking about his family and how proud he was of everyone. I will miss Paul dearly as he truly was one of the most genuine souls I have had the pleasure to know.

My condolences go forth to the members of the Funk Family. I enjoyed a distinct privilege of working with Paul for a considerable length of time in the Sudbury Public Schools. Consistently he was committed to what we were all about, and doing so in collaboration with those of us who had expanded responsibilities. His quality manner of approach - cannot diminish his humor ! -combined with his evident skills made him a true delight with whom to plan and carry out tasks. May he now know - deservedly -the rewards of a life thus lived. So be it. And may all of you come to know an abiding peace, for in its own time and pacing it will be yours. Cordially, Kevin Thomas Plodzik
