My name is Jaimée Erin Greenleaf. I am the loving mother of Jake Cullen Mills, who Paul absolutely adored. We started to get to know each other in 2013 when I moved back to New Orleans after an 8 year hiatus. Apparently, I caught Paul’s eye at a pool party and our mutual friend made it her mission to set us up. The first time he grabbed my hand, it felt like magic and we were inseparable. I knew him years before as the lead guitarist of The McGillicuddys, a band he co-founded with his friend Jheri Laborde. I of course was blown away by his guitar playing. As I got to know him, I realized that he was a shy artist and he held a prestigious position as lead sauté at Mr. B’s Restaurant, a well known New Orleans fine dining establishment in the French Quarter. It took me a while to realize that he could cook their famous BBQ shrimp at home. Every meal was delicious. He was also a huge Independent wrestling fan and had amassed a large collection of wrestling figures which he called dolls or wrestling “mens”. He and Jake would play with them and Jake can name and grab whichever ones Paul asked him to. Paul also loved camping, playing in the woods, and visiting historic sites. His sister, Ayme Mills Hopkins, used to call them “nerd signs”, referring to the brown markers along the highways for national parks and battleground sites. His paintings showed his love of military history. He included every historically accurate, gory detail in bright color. He started a series of blues musicians on scraps of bar wood that I had collected for projects and he took off. We always encouraged each other to play music and make art, which is something I hope to pass onto our son. Paul, Jake, and I even played three live shows together with our band Midnite Prowler in 2017 (Jake in utero). Paul enjoyed announcing that we were actually a 4 piece band even though people could only see three musicians on stage. He looked and breathed rock n roll. A signature look of black tshirts (mostly wrestling shirts), black jeans, Aviator sunglasses, black Converse with black laces and a ball cap which later he swapped out for headbands because I complimented him on it when we first started dating. I helped him cut his hair, but he always said “Don’t make it too nice, it needs to be messed up.” I got in trouble with him once for cutting it “too nice”. I was happy to cut it one last time Tuesday March 23, 2021, the last time we saw him in person. I was so happy to see him make real progress with his sobriety this past year. I got to hear and see a version of Paul that was so clear, both cognitively and orally. We were able to do two week visitations with our son, which filled Paul with life. Paul always wanted to be a father and Jake was his light. They built stick forts together, read books, played with trucks, and the like. It was always so important to me to allow Jake to know all of the great things about his father. He is so bright already at 3 years old and loves and misses his daddy so much. If anyone has bright memories that I can share with our son, please email stories and photos to jakecullenmills@gmail.com an email I set up for our son so he can read them when he gets older. Sending love to all surviving family and friends. We love and miss Paul dearly.
