Paul was born in Worcester, graduated from South High School and was a longtime member of St. Peter's Church. He worked at Atlas Distributing, Inc. for several years. Paul was a former member of the AOH and was very proud of his Irish heritage. Attending the annual Worcester St. Patrick's Day Parade was always a special day for Paul.
