    We all will miss Paulie his antics, loud voice, always teasing my kids when they were young. I personally couldn’t ask for a uncle better then him He was always there for me since my father pass so many years ago. He gave me more than I could every return and he wanted nothing back He was truly a great man to have in my life.

  • Aunt Marilyn, Maryellen, Joe & Jerry,

    My thoughts are with you all at this sad time. But Uncle Paulie was larger than life and I know that his spirit will live on in all of us who knew him. I will never forget his calling Aunt Marilyn Fats as a nickname – which my brother Rick copied by calling Nancy that. And I remember him complaining about my Mom’s coffee and all the teasing that he did. He gave my Mom a job that kept food on our table and for that I will be forever grateful. But there is one special thought that will always be on my mind …..His farewell “toodaloo”.
    Toodaloo my dear Uncle – Maybe Mom’s coffee is better in heaven…
