Paul was born on August 5, 1966; he grew up in Branford and Madison. He was an avid soccer player and fan and was a 1985 graduate of Daniel Hand H.S. in Madison.
Paul attended SCSU and the Greater New Haven Technical College where he studied business and electronics. He began his career in the food service repair industry more than 25 years ago as a valued employee of the Hobart Company. In the year 2001, Paul and two partners founded a successful business, Service One LLC., located in Bridgeport. Service One is a highly regarded supplier to the restaurant and supermarket trade in Southern New England. Paul valued his employees and their families and was respected by his clients and customers for his professionalism, responsiveness and detail to solving problems.
Paul met the love of his life in 1990, an American Italian-Irish girl Cindy Langella, and following a spirited courtship they celebrated their wedding in 2002. They enjoyed 28 wonderful years together, sharing life’s joys, passion and adventures. They own a home in West Haven which they share with their cat Ana and dog, a lovable Doberman named Blu.
Paul was devoted to his wife and family, friends and neighbors. A compassionate man with a heart of gold, Paul is remembered for his wit, kindness and for always extending the hand of friendship. Paul was a proud American and had an appreciation and admiration for those who serve in our military and in our local communities. Paul enjoyed golf, pool, music, beach walks, the Dallas Cowboys and Boston Red Sox, and most of all “chillin” in his back yard with Cindy and his best friend Blu.
