He was a great guy. Very sad. Was much loved in his year at Sandy and made a big impact at the club.

Here's the charity he and his wife set up to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer if anyone wants to donate:

Yes, Paul played very well in the Sandringham 29 pts GF win against Frankston at North Port in 1997 and when it got  bit willing he stood up and it is sad to see him pass so young. VALE

Andy Goodwin was reported for striking Paul Dear in that game.

Not a lot of love lost between Sandy and Frankston back then. The 1/4 time brawl in the grand final was pretty willing.
