A few years after college, he married Paula (Perrotta), the love of his life.  In the late 70’s they built their dream home in Cohasset, where they would spend the remainder of their days together.

In his spare time, Paul was an avid traveler with his wife, Paula.  Their travels took them across the country through many national parks, South America, Patagonia, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, Switzerland and most recently, Alaska.  Winters were spent skiing across New England and out west. For the last 12 years Paul and Paula spent winters on the Island of Anguilla with friends from the US and Canada.  Summers were spent sailing the coast of New England with family and friends.  He was a member of the South Shore Yacht Club in Weymouth for over 40 years.
