    Paul Rappaport was a truly remarkable individual. He was a tremendous public servant and a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He always made sure that he spoke with my family when we would see him at political events or in the local Safeway. He will be greatly missed by all of us who knew and respected him.

    Amen to all of the above!

    I’m truly saddened to learn of Paul’s death. Whether working with Paul as co-counsel or against Paul as opposing counsel, as a lawyer he was always a gentleman and practiced law in a manner that was an example to us all.

    I went to school with his daughter – my sympathies to the entire family.

  5. Paul and I were only acquaintances, but I remember his generosity with advice and time for a young attorney like myself. My condolences to the Rappaport family.

  6. God bless Mr. Rappaport and his family!
