Livonia: Paul A. Vaughan died on January 26, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, at the age of 78. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother George Barlow, and sister Barbara Hasbrouck. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Patricia (Collins) Vaughan; sons, Robert (Laurie) Vaughan and Paul Jr. “Trey” (Joanna) Vaughan, and daughter Amy (Tom) Martin; grandchildren: Jessica, Justin, Kayla, Liam, Andrew, Trevor, and Garrett; sister, Nancy Banker, sister-in-law Annette Barlow, and many other Beloved family members and friends.
Paul was born in Rochester, NY in 1938. He graduated from Edison Technical High School in 1957. He joined the US Army in January 1958 and completed electrical training before being stationed in Germany in the motor division for 26 months. He was honorably discharged in 1962. He joined the IBEW in 1965 and then went on to work for Eastman Kodak in 1980, which he retired from in 1999. Paul was an avid gardener, fastidious lawn caretaker, nature lover, and world traveler. Paul spent his summers growing up on Conesus Lake and spent his life enjoying swimming, concerts in the summer at Vitale Park, and visiting his friends around the lake. He was quick with a smile and laugh, very neat and orderly and attended to the most minute detail of a project with his full attention. Paul was always ready to help friends and neighbors, would strike up a conversation with anyone, eat (almost anything), and kept a keen eye on his money and investments. Pat and Paul enjoyed wintering in Fort Myers, Florida for the last 17 years.
