There was a time when Paul Bishop and I were thick as thieves. One of the smartest fuckers I’ve ever known, an excellent sailor, funny, angry, bitter and just my kind of friend. We had a falling out (I should say he had a falling out) about 20 years ago – most people don’t know that he was with me when I started SA – and I hadn’t spoken more than 20 words to him since. – ed
It is with deep sadness to write this – and I’ve been holding off hoping that if I don’t, it won’t be true. However, this weekend Paul Bishop passed away. Despite knowing him since I was a baby, it wasn’t until the last few years that we became very close. He has been a huge help in organizing my father’s work and making sense of it. I honestly could not have done any of this without him, his support and his friendship. He will be missed.
Paul was also the brain behind this Facebook page. The future of this page at this moment is unknown. We are still in shock and processing but please let me know if you have any ideas or advice.
Thank you for all your support.
