Has passed away. He’s been a wonderful barber to my husband for 25 years and I have a photo of our son in Paul’s chair having his first haircut. A lovely man. Condolences to his family, friends and customers.
I just today learned of Paul’s passing and I am deeply saddened by the news. I was a customer of Paul’s for more than thirty years. As my hair diminished over the years, I visited Paul less frequently but I always looked forward to seeing him and sharing news of family, travel, and the neighborhood. A visit with Paul always brightened my day.
