Paul Dow - once met never forgotten!  Paul loved life, he woke up everyday with a huge smile on his face no matter the circumstances.  He lived to make a difference whether through sharing his passion for making music or through his vocation as a scientist, his charitable donations, or his wicked sense of humour or just a smile and a joke for a stranger.  There is no doubt that he made the world around him a brighter, better place.  He...  see more

    Today Paul would have turned 64, you all know the song that he would have been singing all day!

    We were so sad when we heard we had lost Paul. He fed our love of music so perfectly, and we will miss his infectious smile and lovely cheerful personality. Unfortunately we cannot join you for the Tribute Concert as our youngest son is getting married...  more

    Rest in peace Paul, enjoyed our brief time together in Harrogate, fine beer, classic cars, live music, many fond memories to cherish. Hope you find Eddie VH up there and get to rock forever.

    He was always full of beans. Could liven up a room. The office was always a place of laughter. He loved the rajput and his curry nights out. Natasha was his soulmate. RIP Paul.

    Paul was a fantastic role model when I first started work back in 2000. He was then, about the age I am now. In my first few days of work he and Natasha were always there to invite me to coffee and let me see that working wasn't the rigid, formal way it...  more

    I’d not seen Paul for over 20-years but he’s one of those people you’ll never forget. He was a innovative scientist, and if I say he was a bit of a maverick, I’m sure he’d take that as the compliment it’s meant to be. I was his boss for a...  more

    Great memories of Paul back in the later 80’s when I worked with him. He always went off to the bakers on a Friday morning to get cakes for everyone. We shared a love for rock music and Curries so socialised out of work. Saw him play in Zero Option...  more

    Another great night was Paul's 50th. The kids were very excited and sat front row for the band - they were huge fans and jumped about to the music till they were ready to drop. Tired at last Eve & Ashleigh somehow fell asleep on a chair while the...  more

    I love this pic of Paul. It was the night he was doing a BBQ on the patio, drinking beer and playing games. We decided we would do charades of dances and it was just the funniest thing. I think Paul did the monster mash. I laughed so hard until no noise...  more

      Natasha Dow It might comfort you to know that several times recently Paul said "I don't want to die but I'm ready to die, I have nothing left to resolve". He was an example of contentment.
