77 year old Paul Eckman died on Christmas Day of cancer.


The husband of former Bend City councilor Kahtie Eckman had been a neurologist in the Bend area since the mid 1970's.


Kathie says she'll miss her hsuband of nearly twenty years.


"To me Paul was bigger than life.  First he was a physically large man, 6'3", 250 pounds.  He had a large booming voice.  That's probably what I'm going to miss the most.  He was also a walking encyclopedia.  Sometimes I think he made stuff up.  He was very intelligent, had high ethical values and was an amazing doctor.  He took time with patients.  He's just an amazing person."


A Memorial Service for Paul Eckman will be held at the Mormon Church on Shevlin Park in Bend on Saturday at 2 P.M., followed by a reception at Awbrey Glen.
