Friends fondly remember Huntington native Dr. Paul Wesley Ambrose, who died Sept. 11 when his plane crashed into the Pentagon. The following quotes were taken from the American Medical Student Association Web site, where Paul served as legislative affairs director.
"I remember walking by his office and he was lying on the floor, listening to his Goth music, steel-toed boots in the air. This was Paul's daily routine."
Shawn Taylor Zelman, who worked with Ambrose at AMSA
"He marched to his own beat, and made us all feel cool by association. I never knew what to expect with Paul, which made the friendship more rewarding."
Erin Fuller, former AMSA staff member
"My first thought was, 'My God, he's a surfer!' Then we began to talk. His passion for health-care policy and his almost innate activism was apparent from the first moment. His heart and soul were consumed by the highest ideals, and they were matched by an intellect that was awesome — the best-looking genius I ever met."
Andrew Nowalk, vice president during Ambrose's Legislative Affairs Director term
