So sorry to hear of the loss of Paul. Always a handsome, gregarious man about town in Livingston. He reconnected with my family a few years ago. It was such a gift to enjoy his company and share many laughs. Our sympathy to his family, children, and grandchildren. We will cherish the memories of a gentleman and a friend. RIP Paul

It is with great sadness that we learned of Paul's passing. He faced his illness with great dignity and courage. He showed up week after week with the desire to play and always with his great big smile. We admire his will to live.

He will be missed by his many at Lacey Golf.

Hope he's playing a round with LGA friends who went before him to set up a tee time. A great foursome, Paul, Rich, Larry and Harvey.

Rest in Peace sweet friends.

When we were skinny kids in grammar school we would go to Lenny Estrada’s basement to lift weights. 100 pound weaklings never turned into muscle men. Good man Paul. Never got that last round in with my cousin Billy who grew up next door to Paul on 18th street in East Orange. Rest in peace!
