My sincerest condolences to the Mutimer family. I was deeply saddened to recently receive the news on Instagram as Paul and I corresponded over the social media site the past three years. He was always so supportive of my IG page and had even sent copies of his The Simple Man books to California every year as well as a thoughtful personal note.
I will always cherish my TSM collection. Although I had never met Paul in person, I knew he had a big heart and I was looking forward to watching his documentary in the works. He has truly touched my heart and I am certain the hearts of many others with his kindness and insightful wisdom. His beautiful soul has reached people on the other side of the world. He will truly be missed but his words will carry on. I have also left a tribute to him on my Instagram page.
With love. – Tina
I met Paul when we were students at CIT in 1978. He was kind, friendly and made me laugh. I ran into him many times over the years, including after he got sick, and he was always exactly the same, except for his knowledge and interest in people which continued to grow. My husband and brother both benefited from his amazing professional insight and the world was a better place with Paul in it How lucky then that he left such a lovely family to continue spreading kindness and compassion. I hope you always feel his presence in your lives.
What an amazing man your father was Henry, and hearing you and your family speak of him was very special. A piece of him is part of you and what beautiful memories you have forever. Thinking of you and all your family. Chris Kelliher
Dear Maureen , Kate and Henry
A lovely mass for such a truly precious soul.
We meet as my psychologist but he became someone I called a friend.
Pray that the treasured memories that you have of Paul comforts your broken hearts.
God Bless, RIP Dear Paul.
Thinking of you all and remembering Paul’s smile and kindness.
What a beautiful service for a beautiful man. He will be dearly missed. Thinking of you all and keeping you in my prayers xoxo sending lots of love
Beautiful service for a beautiful person. Thinking of you all. Love Jenny Hirst.
Such a beautiful moving service for a wonderful man. Taken so early in a life where he still had so much to give of himself. Will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Dear Maureen, Henry and Kate
A fitting tribute to a lovely man.
Hadn’t seen Paul for a number of years. We were old school friends and tennis mates. Many fun times shared with much philosophising; as you can imagine.
Hoping your memories comfort you at this time and the times ahead.
Thoughts are with you.
Dear Maureen, Kate, Henry , Elissa and extended Mutimer family,
we felt privileged to be able to be “present” as you so eloquently farewelled your “remarkable man”.
So many tributes, so well deserved.
Paul will indeed be missed by and in the Sacred Heart Community, of which he was such an integral part.
He has left a wonderful legacy, of which he would and should be justifiably proud.
Much love from Paul & Helen
What a beautiful tribute to a man who leaves behind a legacy that will undoubtedly live on.
Thank you, Paul, for gracing this Earth and for leaving your mark. Those you leave behind have the lessons of your strength and will continue to live out the values you helped instill in them.
❤ That man is a success who leaves the world better than he found it; who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had. ❤
Dear Maureen, Henry and Kate,
A beautiful tribute to Paul. Sending our love and prayers to you all.
Dear Maureen and Family,
A very moving and beautiful service. You did a wonderful job of your eulogy, Maureen, and I admire your strength to be able to do it.
May God bless you all, with calmness and strength.
May Paul find peace.
Thank you for sharing this with us, what a beautiful ceremony. Our thoughts are with you all.
Lots of hugs from the Hirst-Imaz Clan.

I remember Paul as a person who had the wondeful ability to turn a failing situation into a wonderfully joyous occasion with much laughter and fun. The world will be a lot poorer for his loss.
Big hugs and kisses to all.
A beautiful service for a beautiful and courageous man. You will be very missed Paul. Our thoughts with are with you Maureen, Kate & Henry.
Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
He was the Simple Man
Maureen, Kate and Henry, the beautiful simplicity and love of Paul you demonstrated and put together with him was divine. Paul so clearly gave you the strength for your eulogies, just as we expected. Thank you so much for a very, very special occasion.

A beautiful, beautiful eulogy from Maureen and from Kate and Henry. Such a difficult job so well done. Our deepest sympathy to all of Paul’s family. Well done and special love to our lovely daughter-in-law, Helen, through whom we were fortunate enough to know Paul – a very special man as Maureen said so well. We will miss him too.

Thank you for the opportunity to share this sad and moving thanks for Paul’s very good life and love.
Henry we are so proud of you. Your family’s love and strength shined through your Dad’s service today.
