Paul and Marie were blessed to move to The Villages in 2011 and have the most caring, fun and loyal friends and neighbors anyone could hope for. He loved to golf (4 holes-in-one), cruise, go to the movies and go to TooJay’s at Lake Sumter Landing for breakfast where Leslie (and Beth in her absence) always gave him and Marie the best possible service. He dearly loved and enjoyed the many Corvettes he owned over the years having sold the last one earlier this year.
