Paul J. Daley
March 2, 1951 – August 15, 2019
Paul J. Daley passed away peacefully at the age of 68. Beloved father of Melissa (Tom Taylor) Daley, Patrick (Jane), Sarah (Brandon) Fifik, Rory (Andrea) and Micailin (Chris) Ext. Cherished grandfather to Grace, Tristan, Keelan, Declan, Brigid, Saoirse and Ava. Dear friend to Kathleen Keane. Brother to Mary Lou (Steve) Huntz, James (Sue) Daley, Kate Tilow and the late Martha and Daniel.
Paul was a loving father, son, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Paul was the son of the late Dr. James B. Daley and Mary Elizabeth Daley. Growing up in Fairview Park, he excelled in athletics, including cross country, track, and basketball. His basketball skill ultimately earned him a spot on the Villanova University basketball team, while his social antics found a fitting home at Tau Kappa Epsilon. He went on to study at Cleveland Marshall School of Law and proudly served as an Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor. He also actively served the community through outreach at St. Malachi, where he never shied from lending a helping hand. Paul loved to travel, be involved in athletics (whether as a competitor, coach, or spectator), and to simply have coffee with friends on a weekend morning. He will be remembered for his love of family, his unwavering faith, encyclopedic knowledge of music, and dry sense of humor. We know his Irish eyes are smiling.
