He was an all-city track star in the high and low hurdles in High School
Paul's working career started at an early age on the set of The Little Rascals. He joined the Navy after his High School graduation. In his civilian life, he found his niche working for Mardquart., Ocean Technologies and Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin). Among other jobs at Martin Marietta, he worked on the Titan program.
He loved sports; in the late 70's he came up with what we believe is the first Fantasy Football League, Why didn't he leverage that into a fortune?! He was the first true Commissioner of the Fantasy Football League.
Paul was clever and witty; a jokester who loved to make people laugh. He was a well known partier and fond of his drink. He was loved and revered by all, He would want all us to remember him for the good times he brought.
You have touched all of us, Paul,and left your print in the fabric of who we are. Rest easy, Commish; you will be missed but not forgotten.
Because of the current COVID surge, a celebration of his life will be held in the summer of 2022.
