Paul Silverbrook Obituary
February 25, 1925 - October 17, 2017 Our beloved father, grandfather, husband, and uncle has passed away at the age of 92. A child of the Great Depression, an Army Veteran of World War II, a career high school history teacher and guidance counselor, Paulie or Uncle Buddy or simply Dad or Grandpa, lived a long life dedicated to his family and most of all to the love of his life, Janine. Born in Philadelphia but destined to meet Janine while stationed in Paris during the war, this was a love story for the ages. After marrying his French bride, he eventually moved from Philadelphia to New York and a career in education. Paul was a passionate man. Passionate about his family, about his wife, daughter, and grandkids and as passionate about reading, writing, sports, travel, and politics as he was about teaching and being a counselor. He could talk your ear off about any of these subjects. Paul loved France and all things French, and cherished every moment spent there with friends and family. The voracious reader, the part-time author, the sports fan, the world traveler, and the obsessive news junkie would forever be the most passionate about Janine¿.simply the other half of his heart and soul. A man with a heart of gold, Paul would do just about anything for anybody and never could quite understand others who would not do the same. He had a mischievous sense of humor, and a twinkle in his eye at all times. Dad/Grandpa/Cher Paulie leaves a very large void and will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know (and love) him. Paul is survived by his daughter, Corinne Carlson, his son-in-law Jim, and their two children, Jesse and Alexandra; and his nephews Stephen and Robert, niece Adrienne and their families. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to one of Paul's favorite charities: the Charity, the , and the Democratic Party.
