Died: May 3, 2021 in Cary, IL
Paul Roman Kaminski, age 70, of Cary, passed away peacefully Monday morning, May 3, 2021, at his home surrounded by his loving family. Paul was born September 11, 1950, in Chicago, the son of Roman and Jeanette (Kraus) Kaminski. On October 22, 1972, Paul married the love of his life, Elizabeth (Betty) Murphy, in St. Hyacinth Catholic Church in Chicago. They have spent 48 wonderful years together.
"Life is good" was Paul's favorite saying. Whether it was traveling with his family, spending time on the golf course, sitting outside listening to music or relaxing with a good bottle of champagne. He made the most of his life and brought everyone he knew along for the ride. His spirit will live forever with anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will be missed tremendously.
Paul is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth (Betty) Kaminski; children: Amy (Sean) O'Brien and Christopher Kaminski; grandchildren: Ella and Miles O'Brien; brothers: Thomas (Rita) Kaminski and Kenneth Kaminski; and several nieces. In addition to his parents, Roman and Jeanette Kaminski, Paul was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Rose Murphy.

As a friend of more that 60 years and my cart mate in golf, Paul will be missed greatly by me. Golf will never be the same without him. As a fellow CPA I will also miss discussing the latest accounting pronouncements with him. The rest of the fellow must have thought we were "special" discussing such matters as we golfed. My heart goes out to Betty and Amy and Chris and the family in this time of grief. Tony
