Paul D. Delivuk, age 66, of Quinton, VA passed away on Friday, May 8, 2020 at Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center. Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Mildred and Paul Delivuk. He was born in Baltimore, MD and grew up in Catonsville, MD. Paul leaves behind three sisters, Patricia Delivuk Arnold of Mt Airy, MD, Diane Delivuk Dickinson of Deltona, FL and Jeanne Delivuk Mele (Art) of Catonsville, MD and his close friend and partner for many years, Rob Wilson, as well as a number of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

Paul seemed to come up with his own unique name for family and friends. He would only call people by their nicknames, enough that everyone knew who he meant, even though the nickname had no relationship to the persons real name.

While still in high school, Paul began his career at Cy's of Catonsville where he worked for over 40 years, and all those decades of employees coming and going also had their own nicknames. At work, Paul created a style second to none for anyone needing a tuxedo. He would fit you to bring out flair and personality and make you ready for any red carpet. He took great pride in his work and the friends that he made while working.

Paul was a big Cher fan, seeing her many times in concert and even getting the opportunity to meet her when he was younger. He collected memorabilia as well as visited Cher websites. Paul loved to eat out, shop and vacation, particularly in Punta Cana and Florida. He also loved flowers and would plant them in the spring and by early summer it was a riot of color in front of his home when in Hanover, PA and our home for the last couple of years in Quinton, VA.

A lot can be said about Paul's winning personality. He was the most kindhearted, likeable, generous, and forgiving person you'd ever meet. Not a shy soul, he would talk and become friends with everyone he met, from waiters in restaurants to people he met from other countries while on vacation and would stay in contact with many of them.

Once you met Paul, he was your friend, and once a friend, always a friend. He will be missed by many.

Because of the current restrictions of the Covid 19 Pandemic, a Celebration of Paul's life will be held at a later date. Tributes may be posted at

Paul, I was at a loss of words when I heard you passed from this Earth. You were and always will be my friend. You were the nicest man I have ever met. I remember the good times we had at Cy's and at your home, swimming in your pool. Those memories will never be forgotten. I love you and hope you are resting in peace.

Johnny and I (Kay) met Paul and Rob in Punta Cana. We always looked forward to seeing him each summer in July on his birthday. Once when we were there, Paul lost his cane.. we kept our eyes open for it that evening. The next day he laughed and told us he found it...hanging in the back of the bathroom door. We enjoyed his company and Punta Cana will never be the same without his sweet face there. He and Rob was a large part of our vacation there each year and it saddens us so much to know that he's gone, but we will never forget him.

I worked at Cys during high school and college, and Paul made that experience better each day. He knew how to make being at work feel less like work. He was always so encouraging, kind, and always made us laugh. I spent a lot of time sitting at his desk with him while listening to Cher and Michael Jackson over and over again. He knew how to bring light and life into every room he was in. He will be missed dearly. Thank you for the amazing memories Paul.

My first job was at Cys and Paul made working more fun. We always joked around and laughed. He loved his everything bagel when I worked with him. He is a great man and friend. I was lucky to have worked with him when I was in high school and into my college years. I would always stop by to see him when I visited my mom in Catonsville (I only moved to Ellicott City). Paul never forgot us kids that worked with him.

Paul was a dear friend for over 40 years, he was funny and quick witted. He also was an usher in my wedding in 1981. The last time I saw Paul was when I went to clean his house in Hanover and we laughed the whole time I was there. My most treasured days were when we would go to Belmont Holiday Inn and would dance up a storm and would dress up for Halloween and also attend New Years Eve parties there. Paul will be missed for his kind heartedness and sense of humor. I am glad yo call him my FRIEND! LOVE AND MISS YOU PAUL ❤❤❤❤
