PETROZZI, Paul John
Paul John Petrozzi passed away on February 23 of liver failure. He was 82 years old. Paul was born in Schenectady, NY on Aug. 11, 1930, the oldest of 3 children of John and Mary Petrozzi.
He received his BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame
and a Masters Degree from Northwestern University
. After working a number of years in the aerospace industry where he published several books on the Properties of Cryogenics Fluids, he attended McGeorge Law School where he received an LLD in law. Following several years of private practice, he worked for the California State Franchise Tax Board until his retirement. He was a member of the California Bar.
He is survived by his wife of almost 50 years Catherine (Smith), his sister Loretta Howard, brother Michael Petrozzi and several nieces and nephews.
Paul had a good sense of humor and enjoyed the good things in life. His interest in history led them to many travels around the world often visiting the sights and battlefields he'd read about in his extensive library collection. His laugh and ability to tell a great story will be missed.
At his request no public services will be held.
