I was contacted yesterday morning by Paul's sister Sharon Spriggs. She informed me that Paul had passed away after his battle with cancer.
Paul, known to many as Kibishipaul, was a valued member of our community and a very talented artist. He was a loving father to his son Ewan and devoted husband to his wife Mayumi.
May he rest in peace.
The Passion Competition did a small tribute to him.
On a personal note, Paul was an inspiration to me and was one of the driving forces of me keeping the Passion Competition going as long as it did. I will always cherish the friendship he and I had.
