Paul was a remarkable athlete from a very young age. He attended Drexel University on a swim scholarship, graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering. He would later compete with the U.S. Rowing Team in Hong Kong and complete over 160 triathlons.
His love and passion for biking, swimming, and running, would lead him to meet his beautiful and loving wife, Ann, who shared these passions alongside him, or occasionally a few meters behind.
Paul was the consummate Dad. He was always at every game or meet shouting encouragement and support. He was the hardest worker we knew. He carried his athletic discipline into every aspect of his life. At the same time, he was exceptionally funny and carefree. You could always expect to have a great laugh around Paul or fall victim to one of his many pranks. Always good-natured, he was a gift to be around, and the proof is in the sheer number of friends he had. Everybody loved him and he will be dearly missed.
Please join us in celebrating Paul’s life at Evergreen Church in Peachtree City at 4:30pm on Friday September 30th, 2022.
