There is no question that Paul’s greatest privilege was to be the dad to his cherished daughters, Clara and Norah. His deep love for them was undeniable. He is also survived by his beloved parents, mother Amy Petron (Randy) and his father Ed Vanaman (Becky). Paul’s sudden passing also leaves a void for his brothers who survived him, Mark and Michael.
Paul loved his grandparents deeply, Roger and Jackie Vanaman and Denton and Delores Rice, who preceded him to heaven.
Our family wants to thank everyone for the outpouring of support during this most difficult time. A private service has already been held in Paul’s memory.
