Paul retired several years ago following many years of dedicated service from the U. S. Post Office where he was a Postal Clerk at the South Postal Annex located in South Station. Paul was a wonderful co-worker and made many friends at work over the years.
 
Paul loved to make a “good first impression” on people, he had a great personality and was a “snazzy” dresser. Paul loved to dress up and look his best for any occasion, whether it was a formal affair or a back yard barbeque, Paul was always the best dressed there from his head to his toes, he had hats for every occasion and lets not forget his cowboy boots, they were his trademark.
 
Paul was devoted to his children and enjoyed every minute that he spent with them, especially their annual trips to the Boston Symphony Orchestra Holiday Pops concert.
 
Paul had a love of theater and the arts, he was an avid history buff, and of course a Boston sports fan. He enjoyed singing, although he couldn’t carry a tune, but that was alright he chimed in anyway and gave it his all.
 
Paul had a deep appreciation of nature and absorbed all it had to offer, from beautiful sceneries to the birds, squirrels, and the animals chirping around him, he could just sit and take it all in with amazement.
 
Paul will be fondly remembered as a guy who would “do his own thing” he was never a follower but a leader in life, he loved his family deeply would do anything for them, he was a true friend and someone who you could count on. He will be greatly missed.
