As a young adult he settled in Washington D.C. where he met and married the love of his life, Donna in 1979. They moved to Florida shortly after where they started their family. Paul always had a knack for fixing, tinkering and building. He worked as an Automation Engineer with BIC Corporation for more than 30 years. Throughout his career he had great accomplishments, built strong friendships, and traveled the world. Paul achieved his goal of receiving his Master’s in Business from the University of Phoenix in 2005.
