I don't mean successful at acting. He obviously was. I mean successful at life, at being a human being that the rest of us can be proud to call our own. Not perfect, but the more you read, the higher he stands. For instance, you may or may not know that he had a compassionate side to folks in distress. By using his celebrity and recognizing a need, he formed a non-profit called Reach Out World Wide (ROWW) that helped organize first-responders to natural disasters. He not only provided a voice but a helping hand in relief efforts multiple times, all over the world.
At age 40, he was ready to do more and be more than he was. The world was cheated the day Paul was taken away.
Obviously, there's more to this man than just a pretty face and a pile of cash. The things we hear so little of are the very things that make a Hollywood hero human and whole. Instead of promoting which Kardashian is doing something self-serving, irresponsible, and stupid, I would love to hear of someone like Paul who CARED about others, and went out of his way to make a difference.
He's not the only one, but Paul surely was a good man and will be missed by all who knew him, and many who didn't.
