Paul died Feb. 15, 2022.

He prepared at Teaneck (N.J.) High School, where he was active in basketball, soccer, and student government. At Princeton he majored in chemistry and undertook an experimental senior thesis on the preparation of a proposed drug. He joined Terrace Club; was active in the Chemistry Club, the Pre-Med Society, and the Outing Club; and participated in freshman soccer and IAA football, basketball, and baseball.

Paul earned a medical degree at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1958 and pursued postgraduate training in cardiology at the University of Rochester, Harvard, and Columbia. He served as a cardiac surgeon at Columbia Presbyterian until 1971, when he founded the cardiac surgical practice at Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan. In 1980 he joined Hackensack Medical Center, where he continued practice until 1962, when he began pursuit of his lifetime passion — baseball. This culminated in part ownership of the Norwich Navigators, a Yankee farm team where he enjoyed seeing the progression of some future stars of the New York Yankees. Paul enjoyed hiking, appreciated nature, and loved dogs.

Paul is survived by his wife, Sarah; and his children, Paul Jr., Susan Daut, David, Vanessa, Caitlin Niv, and Courtney; stepchildren Kenneth Bromberg, Eric Bromberg, and Bruce Bromberg; 10 grandchildren; and six step-grandchildren.
