Paul was a dedicated driver for Columbia/ Montour Aging Office, Inc. he ended each day like he start...with a huge smile that made everyone around him smile back. He loved to talk about his family, especially his Scotty. Paul was a favorite and one of the most sincerely kind men I have ever met

Paul was a great friend to our entire family. As a young man living on Cherry Street, I would always see Paul and Anna Mae as well as Scotty going up and down the street often stopping to say hello or just to chat for a bit with my parents. I always enjoyed talking to Paul at my fathers garage where he would hang out for a bit if his car was being serviced.

He was a great man and friend, I always admired and will will never forget his devotion to his family.

Our blessing are sent in this diffficult time to your family.
