Paul was a Eucharistic Minister with his wife Joan, for over 30 years, was active in the Old Newsboys, Boy Scouts of America, and other organizations.

Paul was a graduate of Toledo Central Catholic High School ('56) and attended the University of Toledo. His pride and joy was his family. He enjoyed fishing, boating, good friends and an occasional "cold" beverage. Some of Paul's words of wisdom included, "How's your day been up til now?" "Thanks for coming in today" and even in his last few days, when someone asked him how are you doing, he would say, "Today is the best day of my life!"
