He loved the game of golf and was an avid and accomplished golfer for many years. He will also be remembered by his neighbors for his beautiful hanging baskets which he loved. Through his lifetime interest in sports and his commitments of the last 20 years he made many good and loyal friends, all of them enriching his life in so many ways. He loved and appreciated all of you. Paul will be remembered by his family for all the unique gifts he presented to us. Paul was the "mashed potato" guy at family gatherings. Sadly he took that recipe with him. At Paul's request there will be no visitation. A Memorial Mass will be offered at St. Paul's Church, Chenango Street, Binghamton, Monday at 9:30 a.m. for those who wish to say goodbye. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City.
