Paul was born on November 21, 1941 in Rochester, NY.  As a young boy growing up in Ontario Center, Paul was very proud of his Upper Mohawk (Turtle Clan), Six Nations Band heritage. His Mohawk heritage served him well when he joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17 and did a tour in Vietnam as a Scout and Sharpshooter. During his time in the Marines Paul also became an accomplished baker. After serving six years in the Marines, he returned home and joined the Laborers Union, Local 435 where he proudly spent thirty years improving Rochester’s infrastructure. 

In 1966, he met Janice, and they married on June 3, 1967. Together they supported their children and family members. Paul was active in the Pal-Mac community where he voluntarily coached a variety of sports teams in support of his children.  Paul was passionate about cooking, fishing, hunting, reading, motorcycling and attending small music festivals. He was a loving and challenging husband, father and loyal friend.
