He spent most of his 34-year career as a special education teacher in the Hamburg Central School District.  In his retirement, he was a dedicated volunteer with Catholic Charities of Buffalo.  In 2017, Paul moved to Washington, DC to be closer to his beloved family.  He enjoyed the last two years exploring Washington with his daughters and making new friends.

Paul loved to “celebrate life”.
