His home was always open to the children of Avonmore and had many of the Alsippi children’s friends frequenting his house for social gatherings, dinners, sleepovers, and generally a good time. Paul was a loving husband, devoted father, uncle, cousin, brother, and a wonderful friend to many.

He found peace and comfort in the outdoors, on numerous golf courses, being in the mountains of Montana, playing Cinch and Poker with friends, and anywhere with family. In his retirement, Paul took great pleasure in waking early for a walk and coffee time with friends new or old. His outgoing personality and knack for conversation quickly made friends of strangers and led him to spend many mornings “working” at Calandrella’s. A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at 2:00 PM at St. Ambrose Roman Catholic, 505 Cambria Ave., Avonmore, Pa with Father John Harrold and Pastor Keith McCutcheon, co-officiating.
