He later worked for the state of PA in various positions at one point managing their CareerLink program in Tannersville PA.  He most recently worked as a caseworker at the Dept of Welfare in Pittsburgh where he loved helping people.

Paul was known for his sense of humor and tattoos. He was a walking work of art. He loved motorcycles and music. He attended many concerts and was happy that he and his girls were able to meet his favorite artist Aaron Lewis. He loved his country and freedom and was a big supporter of 2ndamendment rights. He loved to travel and recently visited Ireland fulfilling a lifelong dream and a promise he made to his mother.

Paul was a mellow dude who will be sorely missed. If you guys have a memorial, wait 'til this pandemic thing subsides, so we can toast and sing to our memories together.

He sounded like a wonderful man. I’m sorry I never got to know him. May the memories of all the good times help you all get through these difficult days. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers.

WOW, so sad. My man "PK" I only met you almost 2 years ago and I enjoyed getting to know you as a coworker. Listening to your stories in that NY accent of yours always made me smile; it reminded me of a happier time in my life, so "Thank you". I liked hearing of your adventures and although, you got sick; I'm glad you got to go to Ireland, you were excited in anticipation of going and you said you had a great time. You'll be missed; now ride that hog on them heavenly trails and FOREVER RIP
