    For those in Paul’s Family, I am sorry for your loss. I knew Paul through Pickleball.
    He was a great player, who always strived to get better. I got to know Paul better when we sat waiting for a court to open up. I enjoyed hearing stories about his time as an educator.

    He will be missed by everyone who played Pickleball with him at Economy Borough.
