"My late husband Kenny (retired CPD) and I were neighbors with Paul..we lived down the alley from Paul. Kenny’s monicker for Paul was “Doc Paul” & Paul enjoyed that title. Paul, Kenny , Paul Moreno & another retired CPD drove down to Marco Island to our condo back in 2007 & had a great time..I know from Kenny that many memories were made. I will miss seeing Paul in the alley by his garage or to see him motorcycle down my street Nettleton. One thing I know for sure is that Kenny was one of the 1st to greet Paul, they have a lot of catching up to do."

You are in our prayers as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate the life of your father, your brother, and the love you shared.As I read the obituary for this man who "enjoyed serving the community as a paramedic," I was reminded of an adaptation of a reading from the Book of Sirach.Let us praise an illustrious man, faithful to his family and friends, strong in his love. At peace in his heart and his world, he has left us his good name, and we recount his life of praiseworthy deeds. A generous man his good works will never be forgotten. Among his family and friends remains a rich inheritance born of him…. His name lives on from generation to generation. We gather to sing his praises. We proclaim his wisdom and love of life all our days.We are certainly proud to “claim” Paul as an alumnus. We will remember Paul and celebrate the fact that he continues to be a member of our community at our annual Alumni Memorial Mass, which is usually celebrated on the first Sunday of November at Saint Viator High School in the Alumni Memorial Chapel. The live-streamed 2023 AMM is available at in the Alumni section. (The date for the Mass in 2024 will be available on the site in the spring of 2024.)As is our tradition, in October we will order a plaque with Paul's name to prayerfully honor him, along with other deceased alumni from Saint Viator and Sacred Heart of Mary, on a wall in the chapel. Also, Paul's name will be listed in the "In Memoriam" section of the winter issue of our news magazine, A Lion for Life.May God’s promise that life is changed, not ended, comfort you!
