On Saturday, August 8, 2020, age 71, of Wilkins Township. Paul was a graduate of Churchill Area High School. He went to work for United States Steel and was then drafted in the Army where he served with Company A, 237 Combat Engineer Battalion, as a Combat Engineer and Personnel Sergeant. After the Army, he graduated from Duquesne University and had a fulfilling career working for Kossman Development, Oxford Development, Duquesne Light, and DTE Energy. He had many passions and interests and gave 100% to what he did. He had been a Volunteer Fireman and Deputy Sheriff for many years and he loved his collections of cars, motorcycles, and more. He was the “go to” guy for everyone, as there was nothing he could not repair. He was known for his sharp wit and keen intelligence. He loved to travel and he loved his pets. He was preceded in death by his mother, Jean; father, Paul Sr.; brother, Chuck; and his nephew, Nathaniel. He leaves behind his wonderful wife, Janet, and a large fan club of in-laws, nephews and nieces who adored him, and lots of wonderful friends.
