Paul was born March 8, 1952, in Youngstown, the son of Michael A.

Paul worked as a hospital pharmacist in New Jersey and owned and operated his own pharmacy in Metuchen, New Jersey.    

Paul enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his daughters.  He loved attending all of their school and sporting events during their childhood and teenage years.  He was deeply proud of their success.  Paul was an avid Cleveland Browns fan.
