  • Paul, or “Paulie,” as my family affectionately called him, served always as a true beacon of light in all of my growing-up-in-Larchmont memories.

    Always a gentleman in every sense of the word, I recall him lifting me up to look out my parents 3rd floor walk-up apartment window to see the end-of-World-War-II firemen’s parade (complete with flaming hose company helmets) on Chatsworth Avenue (we lived at #132) and Palmer Avenue.

    Together with Ernie Grube, Paul was the closest and most respected of all my parents’ friends. The two of them laughed with my mother and sang with my father in our living room or kitchen every week or so for many years.

    Paul was always around to share his warm personality and presence with us. His compassion for many of the struggles my brother and I knew during our rights-of-passage years has long been an inspiration. Paul was truly a role model.

    He will always continue on in our memories as part of our family. God Bless him and his devoted wife and family for all the goodness he brought to those around him.
