    I’m part of a group of lifelong Florham Park friends who had the pleasure of playing softball with Paul when we were in high school and college. He was just a bit older than us – we went to school with Paul’s kids and he was the same age as our parents. But we loved him dearly and considered him a great friend and an amazing teammate. I’ll always cherish those memories. Condolences and warm wishes to Paul’s family. He was an extraordinary man.

    I loved every moment I got to work with Paul. He was incredibly kind, wonderful to be around…quite a card. I’m so terribly sorry to Joanna, Mimi, Sharon, Paul and the extended family for the loss of your Dad. I hope the reunion of he and Liz was spectacular and that your memories heal your hearts!

    One of the best men I have ever known. I met Paul in the 80’s and did business with him for over 30 years. Paul would always call to check in, even after we were no longer doing business together. We would talk about cars (his latest souped up Taurus) and of course puppies (we so loved those boxers). I called him several times when COVID hit to check in on him but unfortunately was unable to make contact. I thought of him again today when a fast Taurus passed me on the freeway, and then I thought to google him when I got to the office and learned of this very sad news.

    I will forever miss your spontaneous phone calls Paul. It was ALWAYS a pleasure to talk with you. You made the world a better place for us all and I am forever grateful to have known you.
