This is the third anniversary of my grandfather's death. He died in peace, just as he would want. Personally, I miss him so much. He was a huge presence in my life, and life itself has not been the same without him. He was the guiding light to me and others. it is hard to believe it has been three years already, because I still think about him in every day life. His presence on Earth it greatly missed. He should not only be remembered as a pioneering in the sport of basketball , but an outstanding man with an impeccable character. His greatest quality was his humility, which is a lesson he instilled in everyone who knew him. he will never be forgotten. I know he is looking down on us all, and enjoying his time in heaven. i love you and miss you every day grand father.


also to be mention is Maureen Jacqueline Arizin.

Her presence was unlike another and is just as missed as grandfather's.

I bled Celtics green but I always admired Paul Arizin, whose class and style and deadly shots from the corner would break my heart when they went swish! Yet, I admired him and kind of enjoyed him scoring against us, while I rooted for Wilt and others to miss!

Arizin never missed being a role model. How blessed is your family for having such a talented sportsman on and off the court.

What a truly great guy. I knew Mr. Arizin when we were the Breslins on 18th Street. There wasn't a bit of pretense about him. Mass every day...every day, what more need be said. He was the real deal. We looked up to him, not because of basketball, heck we were so young we only saw him play for the Camden Bullets, but because he truly was a Presence, in life, where it counted.

Alicia,
I'm late, but I wanted to offer my sincerest, I'm so sorry about your dad. My 14 y/o got cut from the 8th grade team (totally unjust) and I was telling him about your dad. so we looked him up on line. His greatness in basketball will help Dan perservere. My best to your, your mom and your brothers.

I met Mr Arizin at an autograph show years ago and he was a very nice man. My Father in Law has told me a lot of good stories about him on the court.

Rest in Peace Mr Arizin

To the family of Paul Arizin...my favorite player. I met Paul as a sixteen year old kid. Our team buses were held up by an accident outside Ft. Wayne, IN. As a Philadelphia Warrior, he shook my hand as players were walking around as the accident was cleared. We had a conversation and that great moment for me is described in a book I just wrote titled Growing Up in Indiana. I sent Paul a copy and he immediately sent me an autographed picture and nice note telling me that he remembered when we met, but "was surprised I remembered it." How could anyone forget meeting such a great player and a great, gentle man? Paul Arizin was a class act and proved that to me twice. I am glad I had the pleasure of meeting him. Respectfully,

My late father, Joseph, used to take me with him to Villanova basketball games at the Palestra when I was a kid. Watching the recent NCAA games took me back and prompted me to surf the net in search of articles about those glory days. Sadly, it also lead me to the discovery of Paul Arizin's passing. I will never forget the way my father's eyes would light up as he told me tales of Paul Arizin's walk-on, superlative career at Villanova - And of his personal humility. Mr. Arizin was a true hero to my father. Be assured, Arizin family, that even 3,000 miles and 40 years away, Paul Arizin is remembered.

There is an old Irish saying
"He is the kind of man that I wouldnt mind being myself"
