Paul was an avid outdoorsman and, in his spare time, enjoyed hunting and fishing.

He was a kind and loving man and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Paul also leaves behind: two children, Melissa Malito and her husband Tom, Girard, Ohio; a son, Paul V. Dzaja, Hermitage; four grandchildren, Nicholas, Dominic, Madison and Mia Malito; and a sister, Deborah Campbell and her husband Gary, Orlando, Fla.

Paul was preceded in death by his parents.

The family would like to thank Liberty Health Care Center and the staff of Crossroads Hospice for the care and support they provided to Paul and his family. They would also like to thank family and friends who have shown their love and support during this difficult time, especially his cousins, Donna Billioni and Jack Wesneski, and his dear friends, Ron and Mary Malson and Jack Crocker, for the countless hours they spent with him.
