My tennis buddy back at the pond in Elma. Puggs taught me well. He was one of a kind.

Growing up, 399 Goethe Street was my second home, and Mr. Paganello was like a second father to me. I feel so fortunate to have had him in my life, and to have been a part of his! He was never without a smile on his face, or that twinkle in his eye when he laughed.
I have a multitude of memories from this wonderful man, and will cherish each and every one!
Rest in peace ,"Pug".... You will be terribly missed!
Love "Gugs"

I had the good fortune of having Mr. Paganello as part of my life. He had a profound impact on me as a young man, which I carry in my heart each and every day of my life. His kindness and generosity knew no limits. My sincerest regrets to Mrs. Paganello, Deb and Donna. May God Bless all of you, and may God's perpetual light shine upon you.

Donna, Debby, and Aunt Theresa, we are so sorry for your loss and offer our sincerest condolences. Uncle "Pug" was such a joyous person and always full of laughter. He is at peace and I'm sure he is smiling in the arms of his brothers and sister.
