My deepest sympathy to the entire Caterina family. I had the privilege of knowing Paul when I was actively involved at the Intervale Country Club especially when I was the golf pro during the 70's. He always brought with him a spirit of laughter and happiness to the club that grew on all of us! He will be missed by all who knew him but the wonderful memories he left behind will last forever.
