Paul was a dedicated employee of the City of Newton for over 30 years serving the community in the most professional manner. He was first in line when a fellow employee was in need and was quick to pass his knowledge onto one of his co-workers. His work ethic and reliability were certainly a model for all to follow.

More importantly was the love and passion Paul had for his family, friends, and life in general. He was always quick to help whoever needed him while putting himself second. If the world had more people like Paul, we would all be in a better place.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Paul’s name to Dana Farber Leukemia Center 450 Brookline Ave Boston Ma. 02215.
