Paul Sarle, my husband, my best friend. As they say in the movies “he completed me.” He was my dream come true. Paul really knew how to make a person a part of him. He was the most wonderful father. Everything was about his children. You could see the love in his eyes whenever he was with them. When I asked them what I should write they said to write “thank you daddy.”
Paul was a terrific son. He always called his mom and he was always watching out after her. He also liked to keep her on her toes. As she said, “he kept me young.” He was the baby of six and he loved it. His mother, as of late, has referred to him as the peace maker.
Paul was extremely close to his brothers and sisters. Whether it was watching with pride as John and Peter played in the band or just relaxing on the beach, he enjoyed being with his family. He was the type that always called just to say hello.
He also had many friends and his visitation memorial at Chapeys Funeral Home was testimony to that. He knew how to live life to its fullest and how to have fun with the best of them.
Paul was an absolutely wonderful person with a smile we won’t soon forget. I will love him forever.
WE HAD A GREAT TIME BACK IN TOKYO PAUL…WE ALL GOT A BIG KICK OUT OF YOU, BUT BOBBY BALSEIRO LOVED YOU THE MOST. I WISH WE HAD REMAINED IN CLOSER TOUCH OVER THE YEARS, BUT WHEN I SAW YOU IN THE CAFETERIA ON 101 AND ASKED YOU HOW YOU WERE, YOU SAID “I WISH I WAS AT THE BEACH PEEJ!” LIKE I KNEW YOU WOULD. WHEN LIFE GETS TOO BUSY PAUL, I HOPE I HAVE THE GOOD SENSE TO PUT MY KIDS IN THE CAR,HEAD OUT TO THE BEACH, AND HAVE A BUD WITH YOU. MAYBE I’LL TELL THEM ABOUT THE GUY WITH THE BIG SMILE WHO LOVED THE BEACH MORE THAN ANYONE I KNEW…..
Paulie, what can I say. I met you when I started at Cantor in 1986 and then you left for Tokyo. When you came back, you sat with me and Peter O’Neill (Peter, Paul & Mary) Those were some of my best times at Cantor. Even though we fought sometimes, it always made for a good laugh later on. When you left and came back again it was so great to have you back around. You always talked about your wife and kids and you were so happy for me when I became a mother. They are always in my prayers. I will think of you often, but more so when I watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. You called every year with trivia questions about it and we still never figured out if the elf’s name is Herbie or Hermie. That movie will always bring a smile to my face with the thought of you. God bless you.
Paul Sarle…That name always brought a smile to my face. Paul with that big smile, that big laugh, those fast, drum-playing hands, and banging around feet. He was so much fun to be around, except on Friday mornings with a hang-over, but, he always got you out of your funk, and got you laughing. I have (or had, I’m not sure now) such happy memories of my time at Cantor, and Paul will always be a big part of those memories…such a warm, happy guy. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to know Paul. Linda, I am so sorry for your loss, and I will pray for you and your children. God Bless.
Paul, where do I start? Of all the people I’ve ever met in my life you were definitely the one who had his priorities perfect. You worked hard but only to make sure that you could enjoy every minute and live each day to the fullest. You remind me so much of my father who always told us to enjoy everyday because you can’t take any of it with you. You, your ever-enthusiastic love and passion for Linda and the children, your family, your beloved boat and beach house, your days off fishing with Mr Luiso and your friends, your passion for making the house and garden the home you always dreamed of. To say you loved life seems like a vast understatement. I mean look how everyone remembers you! Your smile, your family values, your fun-loving attitude. We didn’t always see eye-to-eye but who couldn’t like you and respect your amazing attitude to life and that what you had was so simple and yet so extraordinary. The rest of us aspire to the kind of hapiness you had, the kind of hapiness that was written all over your face. You are missed more than you know. Linda, my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family as always.
There can never be any words to truly express the sadness that I’m sure everyone who knew Paul feels at his loss. I hope it is a small comfort to Linda and the Sarle family that Paul will never be forgotten by his many friends. I treasure every memory that I have of him. We shared wonderful times at Cantor. Mostly, I cherish the conversations Paul and I had about his children. They have a father who loved them deeply.
I had the good fortune of working with Paul at Cantor for almost ten years. I can honestly say that my best years at Cantor were when Paul and I were partners. Not only did that ensure that I would have a cooperative, skilled, and dedicated partner, but that I would always be well fed. On many occasions Paul would come back to the desk with some incredibly delicious creation that he had whipped up in the kitchen, sit down at his desk, be about to take a bite, turn and see me staring at him. Without a word, Paul would just hand it over to me and then go back to the kitchen and make another one for himself. But the best thing about working with Paul was his ability to always make me laugh. Paul became more than a co-worker, he became a very dear friend. He was a generous friend who always wanted to share his treasures and passions with you. I will forever have so many wonderful things and times that Paul shared with me. I think about Paul often and that handsome face with the big grin comes to mind. I miss him very much and know how lucky I was to have had him in my life.
There is not a day that goes by that yor’re not in my thoughts. The best time we ever had together was when we drifted on the sound for hours not catching a thing. I’m happy that Linda sent me your picture, it’s on the fireplace mantel. It was hard at first, now it’s the best thing up there, because I see us drifting and thats the happy time I carry with me forever.
Love ya Paul!
I have so many warm memories of you. You and your whole family are such wonderful people. What moment sticks in my mind was during that first summer at Fire Island. You were so proud of the house you and Linda made into a little paradise, with all those old bikes! You gave my family the place for a week, and were overly welcoming,(I fell in love with Fire Island). That first evening my sister, cousin, and I went down to the water, after ogling at Jack who was just a baby. You soon followed with Casey your dog, at one point you said that she was your first baby. I have told that story for years. Everyone who knows you knows it already, but that just shows what a great guy you are. I am so happy to have known someone like you.
To Paul, I want to say that we were not the closest of friends in high school, but I remember that I never saw you without a smile, and you were always kind to everyone. I am so sorry that you were also caught in this tragedy.
To Paul’s Wife, Children, Family and Friends, I feel a kinship with you because my brother, Joseph Corbett, also worked for Cantor and was also lost. I know your pain, and I am truly sorry. I know you have lost a wonderful person. I will keep Paul and his loved ones in my prayers.
Dear Uncle Paul,
I love you and I miss you so much. I wish I could see you again but at least I know that I can talk to you in heaven whenever I want.
Love forever, Carly
How do I start? So many years, so many laughs, so many great times. The ski houses at Hunter. Sayonara Hunter Hello Mt. Fuji! You and Ed on the jet skis “I will not leave my Wing man!” All the great times at Kismet and on your boat. You were always so generous with all you had. I could never have been happier for my friend Linda then the day she married you. You are the love of her life, her best friend. What a wonderful father you were. Jack & Leeann knew how much they were loved. And now Paul will always know how much he was loved before he even got here! We all will remember you every day for the rest of our lives. It’s so hard knowing you won’t be around to share a “pop” with this summer. But I know you’ll be looking down with that great smile and we’ll toast you. I love you.
Love forever, Marybeth
Paul, every day I think about you. I think about your smile, your laugh, your dreams, your stories, but most of all I think about your zest for life. I will never forget “charlie” your dog following you around as a child,Or our ski trips to Vermont, or our fishing trips to Montauk. That smile will never be forgotten, nor will the love of friends and family. You’ve left a void in all of our lives, a void that can never be filled.
Paul, If I had to share the love of my life with anyone, I am proud that someone was you. You were by far the most giving and fun loving person I ever met. Over the years your relaxed, “live life to the fullest” attitude has taught me and many others to appreciate the small things in life and not to sweat the big. From the sking, to the boat, beach and the beach house so many fond memories we all share. Marrying Linda was your best decision ever in life. I always felt you would never find a better match. The to of you together and how you enjoyed each other was always a pleasure to see. I miss you more than words could ever express. My heart breaks for Tom, Linda and all those so close to you. When you look down on us, always know that we will keep you in our hearts forever and your sparkle alive not only for us but for those who were never blessed enough to know you.
Happy Birthday Paul. I will never forget.
Blessings to your family.
There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t think of you. You were and still are a true friend..I really wish that I could see that wonderful smile and hear that intense laugh again. You always put a smile on my face and made me laugh.. you were the life of the party and you really enjoyed life and really lived yours to the fullest. I miss you and think of your family often and pray for them. You made the days at Cantor so much fun. “So Herbie wants to be a dentist”!!!!! You had so many funny lines that I still repeat them often. When Paul walked into the room, thats when the party really started. Paul, you are truly unforgettable and I miss you.
For only a short time, about a year I sat next to Paul along with Ted Smith,Sean Sheridan,and Tony Lupo.Paul knew me as chuck.A couple of times we had gone out to entertain custemers.I was having a bit of hard time adjusting until I sat next to Paul and Ted.I had a great time with them. During that time I was at a acrossroad in my life and chose to follow a different career path. That was not an easy choice at the time, they made me feel comfortable, and at home, I belonged there. For several months I have been wanting to reach out to his family to offer my simpathy and to just say that I remember him, evan though my time with paul was brief.So I would like to share a moment in time with you that I have had the honor to share with paul. It was during the time he was researhing dogs, a Springer Spanial to be specific Paul decided to call the Springer Spanial Sociaty, and a lady answered,and the end result of that conversation was that the lady said “sir I do not believe you should have a dog, and that you are not a good cantidate for this kind of pet”. Well that upset Paul and he slammed the phone down on the desk and just could not believe what he just heard. So he gets back on the phone and calls the lady back,by this time myself and several other co-workers picked up the phone to listen. The lady answers ” HELLO SPRINGER SPANIAL SOCIATY” so Paul goes ” WOOF WOOF” she goes “EXCUSE ME” then he said “WOOF,WOOOF,WOOOOOOF, WOOF GRRRRRRRH,WOOF” she says “I DONT THINK THAT IS VERY FUNNY” well any way a couple of more woof woofs then he slammed the phone down a few times. I think he felt better, needless to say he got a Sringer Spanial despite the advice of that lady.At the time that was one of the funniest things I’ve heard.And I think that kind of summed up his personality.I always seen him as a fun loving caring person who any one would want to hang around with. In fact i tell that story my family and peaple I know. This letter has not been an easy thing for me to write for fear of upsetting P auls loved ones.Please know that it comes from my heart and that Paul and his family has been in our prayers, and from my family to yours we send our sympathy.He carries on in you and your children and the peaple that remember him.And I am here to say that “I REMEMBER HIM” SINCERELY CHARLES JENNER AND FAMILY
Although any time I spent with him was very brief and during the early years of my childhood, I remember an incredibly vivacious and loving soul. I am grateful that I got to see him one last time during my adulthood at a baseball game-I simply cannot imagine one single person as happy to be who he was, and as in love with his family, as Paul was on that day; and I am positive it was no different than any other day he had the oppportunity to spend with friends, family, or even strangers. I truly feel blessed to have been even a minute part of such an amazingly loving life. He always stands out in my memories as “the fun one”, and he is a precious spirit to be remembered. God bless Linda, your beautiful children, and anyone else lucky enough to have been blessed by knowing Paul Sarle.
Happy Birthday!!! You are truly an unforgettable person who is certainly missed. I pray everyday for your mom,your wife and children and your large family. Heaven certainly got one of the best….
Paul what can i say. We started at Cantor the same day and moved to Tokyo a week apart. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard with anyone as i did with you. I look at those pictures from our trip to Guam and have to laugh out loud. I am very sorry we didn’t keep in touch.You are always in my thoughts and your family in my prayers..Heaven is lucky to have you….
HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN. MISS YOU HERE ON EARTH. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. TIL WE MEET AGAIN. THANKS FOR BEING SUCH A WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING AND A GREAT, UNFORGETTABLE FRIEND.
THANK YOU FOR TEACHING ME TO LIGHTEN UP!! THAT’S A LESSON THAT STAYS WITH ME DAILY AND I PASS IT ALONG TO OTHERS, THANKS TO YOU!! MISS YOU. LOVE, LIZ

“The Road Goes On Forever”
Rest in Peace.
6 years and you will never be forgotten. Your family is always in out thoughts and prayers.
Happy B’Day Bro. Miss you more and more each year that goes by.
Caught a nice Bass yesterday in “Paulie’s Hole”. Fished with Brian. Brian was only 5 when you left but he still remembers you, just like anyone who ever had the luck to meet you. Last time I caught one there I was anchored right next to you and your son. Yesterday, I dropped my first line and had one in 10 seconds. The only one of the day. Thanks for hooling me up, once again. You have no idea how much I miss you.
Justice for you. A long time coming.
“Gone for now, but NEVER forgotten!”
COME IN TOKYO!!!!!!!! paul, i can still hear your voice and see your smile. such a tragedy. please know that we all still think of you!!
