Paul and I were friends for 55 years. We first met at US Steel where I had just gone to work and Paul was my supervisor several levels up. Labor Day we discovered we had cottages a few houses apart. From that time on until now we were friends and neighbors. He was my supervisor for 13 years at 3 companies. At the cottage we played badminton and volleyball, had dinners together, played cards, and water skied on the Allegheny River. Our kids grew up together and our families gathered at the cottage, in Cincinnati, New Jersey, South Hills, and Atlanta.. In 1969 at the cottage Paul asked me to come work for him at Champion International in Hamilton, Ohio . We then lived only a few miles apart in Cincinnati and would visit at his house or mine. We often shared the dinner table with Paul, his beloved wife Louise and his nine kids. He was a good boss and was respected by his employees and his own management.

At the cottage we shared many times together. Our kids were friends as they grew up and we continued to follow their ways. We were there when Jill and John were born. At one of their children’s weddings I was the photographer. At Champion we participated in the golf league and the bowling league. We all belong to the Local YMCA. and enjoyed the Sunday night bowling league.

Through our times together, working at the same company, as neighbors both in Hillville and in Cincinnati all of our families were best friends.

I remember the joint meals we shared and the Coca-Cola’s and Pepsi’s Louise would have after we came in from skiing, badminton or volleyball.

Paul and Louise I will miss you, but you are together again in that great place beyond.

God will bless you both as you have blessed the lives of many.

I haven’t lived in the same city as my family since 2015. Since then, the only time I ever really got to see my grandparents was the few times I visited home during holiday breaks. Whenever I would see my grandpa for the first time after a while, the first thing he would say was “Hey! There’s the world traveler!” I’m pretty sure he started saying this before I had even traveled out of the country. He and Grandma would listen to anything I was willing to share with them, always beaming with awe, making me feel like I really was a world traveler with stories worth sharing. It’s a bit strange to feel relief with death. But I must admit that even though I mourn the death of my grandpa, I can’t help but feel a sense of completeness knowing that his soul is exactly where it needs to be. My grandmother, the love of his life, his true and honest twin flame passed away not even a year ago. He has been waiting to return to her ever since. They will always be my vision of what love should look and feel like. A bondage between two souls that holds space and love for the other without expectations or conditions. I will forever admire their example of unity and feel so insanely blessed to have witnessed what they shared. They always had this sense of calmness about them. Like they always knew that the whole world could burn down around them, and they would be left standing together. A rooted confidence that their love will last in the most literal sense of forever. And because of this, I have no doubt their souls are together. I’m not sure where they are - maybe in everything. Because today the wind feels a little cooler, the ocean looks a little bigger, the sky a little bluer, and the two yellow warblers singing sound a little sweeter. Maybe their souls have even merged into one. Maybe their meeting again created a star somewhere far off in the universe whose light will shine just bright enough to peek through the sky tonight. Maybe they’ve reunited in a dance so powerful that they’re the reason the universe keeps expanding. I didn’t get to spend much time with them because of living far away but now it feels as if there is no distance that separates us. I see them in the two sea turtles swimming underneath my surf board. I see them in the eyes of the nine sea lion pups that played with me while scuba diving yesterday. I see them in the blooming flowers, the dragonflies floating by, and the bioluminescence I swam with last night. Oddly enough, I feel closer to them now than ever before. I feel like my eyes are seeing everything with more light. Something feels a little more complete and a lot more at peace. Everything feels settled. Life and death somehow make sense. I can’t help but feel that their souls are at peace together, making beauty and shining the light of love through every one of us they left behind. I read in a book called “The Book of Joy” that once you change your perspective and stop making someone else’s death about you, you’ll realize what a privilege it is to feel grief. What a blessing it is to feel the emptiness of the room now that they’re not in it. How beautiful it was to feel a love so deep. I see what a privilege it is to have grandparents that loved me and my family unconditionally. What a privilege it is to have been able to spend time with them throughout my life. What a privilege it is to see their love intertwined within all the beauty around me. I’ll still mourn the death of my grandfather, but I’ll look at this grief as a sign that I am so incredibly blessed to know a love like this. And for that, I am so grateful. May you relish in Eternal Love Grandpa (5/22/19) & Grandma Pavloff (6/17/18).

Hello Pavloff Family

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. Paul was a GOOD man and a better Boss. I learned about loyalty and caring for people from Paul. I have added him (your mom was already there) to my special list of deceased that I pray for daily.
I am sorry to say I will be unable to attend todays visitation. I have been caring for my wife who is
currently under Crossroads Hospice care for her condition. Special condolences to John and Paul.
God bless your family.

The Beatty/Foster family is so sad to hear of your dad's passing. I'll always remember the wonderful memories at the cottage. We moved to Cincinnati because of Paul. He was dad's boss several times in my dad's many careers. What I loved most about your dad was his loving heart and how much he loved his family. He's a great man and will be missed by many. My mom is on a cruise in Alaska and sends her love and prayers to you all. Ginny and Brian send their condolences as well. I know your parents are together again in heaven.
