Collega Maarten Hoogstraten schrijft op de website van Bingo Players:
Dear All, I’m deeply saddened to tell you that Paul passed away last night after his battle with cancer. He fought strongly until the end. We want to thank you all for your support over the past few last months. Needless to say, all upcoming shows for the rest of this year have been cancelled as we’re going through this loss with family and friends.
