Paul retired from General Telephone in Redondo Beach after 29 years and then spent over 10 years with the South Bay Lexus auto group. Paul was a member of St. Catherine Laboure Church. He was a great husband, father and grandfather to us all. His love for our mother will never be forgotten. We will always remember his Irish humor and his willingness to help anyone. His hammer has been silenced, but our memories of everything he did to help each of us build wonderful families will always be with us. He enjoyed traveling and visiting with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Many Laughlin and Palm Desert Casino's will miss Dad's contributions. He also enjoyed watching his favorite sports teams: the New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, and the LA Lakers.
