Surrounded by the love of his family, Paul S. Kozemchak, age 69, died on November 10, 2017 from injuries sustained after being struck by an automobile in Arlington a week earlier. PK, as he was known to his friends, was among the longest serving members of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where he had served for nearly 28 years as a national security advisor to successive directors. Born on February 29, 1948, in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Paul was the son of the late Peter J. Kozemchak and Florentina T. (Zahurak) of Emmaus. He is survived by three children; Christopher of Falls Church, Virginia, Kyra Fussell (Jarrett) of Annandale, Virginia, Christiana Hardy (Richard) of Springfield, Virginia; and five grandchildren, nieces and nephews. His 42-year marriage to Stephanie Kozemchak ended in divorce in 2012.
