Paul J. Bartishevich
Bartishevich, Paul J.

Paul J. Bartishevich, a bull of a man at the summit of his powers with a loving family in his charge, perished some time Friday morning at home, apparently of a heart attack. He was 53. Bartishevich, of 7615 Willow Creek Road, Trumansburg, leaves a legion of grief-stricken friends, colleagues and admirers, all of them in a state of stunned disbelief, in the wake of his sudden departure. Paul was born with an affinity for journalism - and particularly broadcast radio, the latter to become both his avocation and his professional calling card. The son of Charles and Ruth (Austin) Bartishevich, he began his lifelong love affair with broadcast radio at Lyons High School, where he learned to modulate a sonorous authoritative presence behind the microphone reciting the school's morning announcements. Throughout his teens he worked as a disk jockey in Newark and Rochester, NY and went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in communications from SUNY Oswego in 1981. Three short years later he married Karen Youngs, his high school sweetheart, and in 1984 the couple settled in Syracuse, NY, where Paul began his broadcasting career in earnest. He served a stint as news anchor at WSYR Radio there in the Salt City before taking a related job at Cornell University. An entrepreneur at heart, and an intrepid one, Paul founded his own business in Ithaca in 1987: Finger Lakes Productions International (FLPI). He served as its chief executive officer of FLPI to the hour of his unexpected death - two dozen years of solid performance in a variety of radio formats that comprise a resume full of innovation, excellence and competence across a variety of wide-ranging fields. FLPI produced and distributed daily radio programming to more than 120

countries and territories via the Voice of America and American Forces Radio, as well as programming for National Public Radio affiliates nationwide. These include many programs that are household names to area residents: Bird Watch (later expanded to Nature Watch), Animal Instincts, Ocean Report, which evolved into Our Ocean World, EnvironMinute, Microbeworld, and a slate of others that represented Paul's deep commitment to public education in the areas of science, nature and technology. He recruited the best local writing talent he could corral to assist in his goal of breaking-down complex concepts in science, technology and the environment into language listeners at all levels of education could understand -- often in less than 60 seconds. His relationships with contacts in advertising, government and academia were long-lived and based on trust and mutual admiration. FLPI, often on a shoestring budget, produced some of the finest work of its kind anywhere in the field of broadcast journalism. A staunch believer in the power of Public Service Announcements, Paul's enterprise also produced campaigns on behalf of the National Interagency Fire Centers; the Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement; the American Red Cross, New York Forest Owners Association, Welvista (topics on the importance of long-term care planning), and the Kicks Count Campaign (preventing still-births), which won a Hermes Creative Award. FLPI also was selected, during the Bush, Sr. and Clinton administrations, to lead corporate sponsorship and privatization initiatives on behalf of the Voice of America. In 1998, FLPI founded and launched the Radio Voyager Network (RVN), which became the first English-language commercial radio network to broadcast throughout Europe. Paul moved FLPI into digital publishing in 2010 with the launch of www.HearTheAnswer.com, an integrated marketing initiative. Paul's most recent dream was the formation of a new company, which he named after his long-standing friend and mentor, Howard "Chavo" Bell. Chavo Digital Media was incorporated by Paul in May 2012. On Paul's passing, Bell, past president of the American Advertising Federation and Chair of the National Advertising Review Board, said "there was no one for whom I had more respect as a business executive, a sentiment shared by many leaders in the industry. He was an inspiration to me and so many others for his passion to do good deeds and good work." Paul's relationships continued well beyond his work at FLPI; he mentored young people and with unparalleled enthusiasm, shared his experience sponsoring internships and job interview training sessions. Each of his interns was presented with a copy of Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich," an inspirational business text Paul turned to again and again in his quest to succeed as a small businessman in a cutthroat industry. He also served as an inspired guest lecturer at both Cornell University and Ithaca College, where his singular talent for communications energized hundreds of students and listeners. In addition, Paul led innumerable community volunteer and fundraising efforts, often combining these events with his mad-love of cooking. Paul was a foodie and it brought him great pleasure to serve as chef d'haute for large groups of people, fostering with food and refreshment and camaraderie, a deep sense of community. One of Paul's favorite events was the annual church picnic at the Bartishevich family barn for members of the First Presbyterian Church of Ulysses, a clamorous bout of fun and good cheer that all members enjoyed tremendously. Too, he was famous for orchestrating gatherings with his extended family where his legendary exuberance and joie de vivre made so many of these get-togethers cherished memories. Paul also went out of his way to perform small but quiet kindnesses for those in need. He relished bringing comfort food (borscht was his specialty), red roses (his favorite), or kind words of encouragement to people whom, he learned through the grapevine, needed a boost. And he was gifted with the ability to somehow cheer the glummest heart and uplift the discouraged. While Paul cared deeply for everyone in his life, his central focus and deepest commitment was to his wife Karen, and four children, Benn, Jay, Alec, and Anna Bartishevich. Paul was an ever-present and lively spectator at his children's many sporting, musical and school events. He was a proud husband and father and was quick to share a picture or story about his children's many activities or accomplishments. Paul's love of music spanned all genres from rock to mood music, to oldies and classical - and he liked his music LOUD. He loved (and excelled at) music trivia and was a collector of antique radios. He adored his family pets; his dog Myla held a special place in his heart. A student of local and global current events, Paul thoroughly enjoyed a spirited political debate, providing articulate - and vociferous - opinions, while managing to maintain a healthy respect for opposing viewpoints. Finally, Paul loved his family's rustic country home, Pinecliff Farm, and frequently said he felt privileged to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. He was a dynamo, a passionate family man, and loving husband. He will be missed by all who knew him and all whose lives passed within the sphere of his good influence. In addition to his immediate Trumansburg family, Paul is survived by his mother, Ruth Bartishevich; brother, Sergei (Paula) Bartishevich; sister, Lynne (Loren) Maslyn; five nieces and nephews, Charlie Bartishevich, Staci Santelli, Amy Kemp, Erin Maslyn, and Brian Maslyn; a number of great-nieces and nephews, numerous cousins, two wonderful aunts, and many dear friends and business colleagues. He was preceded in death by his father, Charles, and brother, Richard Bartishevich. The family will be present to receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6, at the Ness-Sibley Funeral Home, 23 South Street, Trumansburg. A Memorial Service will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, at the First Presbyterian Church of Ulysses, 69 E. Main Street, Trumansburg, with the Rev. Cheryl Peeples officiating. Prayers of committal will immediately follow in Grove Cemetery. The family asks those who wish to remember Paul in the form of a contribution to kindly consider the American Red Cross, 201 West Clinton St., Ithaca, NY 14850 or the American Cancer Society, 13 Beech St., Johnson City, NY 13790. For additional information please contact the funeral home at 1-888-534-5446 or www.ness-sibley.com.

Paul was a neighbor from childhood. We rode the same school bus and belonged to the same 4-H Club. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. I will always have good memories of the character that was Paul. May God Bless his soul and comfort his family at this very sad time. RIP, my friend.

I have broadcasted Paul's short form features in NW Florida and East Alabama since 2005. They are all first class and bring a unique listen to many things in life. It was an incredible accomplishment to create and produce such gold standard audio. I've been in radio for 40 years and never heard any production better or as dependable as his service. I am sorry to hear of his passing and thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. He sure left a great legacy and I hope his staff will find a way to keep his special sounds alive for radio listeners everywhere. He made a lot of life more interesting. He must have really been amazed arriving at heaven's door.

I saw Paul at Wegman's during the week, heard his proud descriptions of each of his children's accomplishments and current activities, and commented how nice it was that we bumped into each other from time to time. In typical charming fashion, Paul snapped his fingers, said, "I'm just a man about town" and put a smile on my face. I will hold that last memory dear.

On behalf of the staff and volunters of KSQM 91.5 FM located way out west in Sequim, WA - we send our prayers to family and friends over the very unexpected loss of Paul. As a non-profit community radio station, we aired some of Paul's programming which was superior. It's unfortunate that at Paul's passing we learn even more about the breadth and depth - the richness that Paul brought to our indutry and to your community. We wish that we could have had more time to engage and partner with Paul.

With warmest regards and thoughts.

My deepest condolences to the entire Bartishevich family. I was a fellow student with Paul all throughout school in Lyons. In looking back at those days, I don't believe that I ever heard anyone say an unkind word about Paul. He always had a smile, a friendly wave, and was always talking (which I see paid off in later days!). How many teenage boys would be proud that his Mother was the high school nurse (our beloved Mrs. B.)? Not many, but Paul was. He was loved deeply by a teriffic family and he shared that love in return with all he met. We were all the better for having known him.
God Speed, Bart!

Karen and family: We are so sorry to hear about Paul's passing. We will always remember running around Owego with Paul, to donate a huge amount of clothes after the floods there. We eventually stacked them in Pastor Jeff's garage, after a lot of phone-calls and dickering on Paul's part. He was kind, respectul to all, funny, and had a huge heart for anyone. Our prayers go out to you all during this very sad time.

Hi Karen and children. I am out of state and unable to see you. But I want you to know how much my heart goes out to you all.Sudden loss is so so hard....but there is hope, Karen, though maybe after some time has passed. Karen ,It has been 8 yrs since I loss my brother suddenly.I remember your kindness when I saw you after the event. I can only say to you that it took a long time for me.., but I want to offer you hope.In feeling all there is ...in such an awful unjust event I was able to accept and process what was, and able to(as someone else in your guestbook commented)" think of my brother with more of a smile than sorrow." We all experience our oun process of grief and I encourage you to allow yourself to experience your individual path of grief. I care about you and your children and wish you peace. A Memory: I remember Anna coming to preschool one day in the most adorable homemade looking dress. When I commented to you about it Karen, you told me"Paul wanted to buy Anna a beautiful dress from April Cornell on the Commons for a special event. I was so touched at the thoughtful expresion of love for his daughter that your husband had and happy for Anna that she had a loving adoring father.I wish Alec ,Anna and the rest of you all,the best.

It's not just the shock but the loss that will ripple through my life. Paul was so filled with his love for challenges, his pride and love of family, and the joy he found in the development of creative content while working with creative people. His ideas and vision inspired many from Finger Lakes Production and others to create engaging stories and informative segments that have reached millions of listeners. I will miss his energy and enthusiasm he shared with every meeting, or bumping into. Karen, your loss is great, but his love persists. You both have raised wonderful children that echo your's and Paul's devotion to community and each other. May the outpouring from the wide community you all have touch, give you strength and peace as we all gather to honor Paul. And when his friends and family scatter back to their lives, please call if only out of frustration because the grass has grown to tall or some hard to reach light bulb has blown again. Peace be with you and the family. Love to all.

Dear Karen and family - I am still in shock upon hearing the death of a good friend who had never left my mind since I graduated from Lyons High School. Paul and I were in the Sr High Chorus together, participated in the high school Musical and Variety Show functions ( our small character parrts in "SOUTH PACIFIC" will always go down in our fondest memories with the line "There was a moon!) and, his serving twice as Student Council President which led him to doing the over-the-speaker broadcast of the school events. He wrote songs, mostly lyrics, but I promised I would teach him to compose the music. Sadly, my busy life of college, lacrosse and composing film scores for student films and lecturing across the universities hadmade it difficult. You had a wonderful man for a husband and father with a great sense of humor and I knew he would go as far as he did in his vocation. My sincerest condolences.

I do not know the family well...but I have seen incredible affection & devotion when Paul joined his wife in church & put his arm around her 2 pull her closer to him for the services. This is a man who loved deeply and with open devotion. My thoughts are w/ all of you at this trying time.

There are people that touch our lives, that although we physically leave them, they never in our hearts leave us. Paul was one of those people. I am grateful to have known him, and to have worked with him. It was through my work at Radio Voyager that I met not only Paul, but a larger group of spectacular people who also remain very important parts of my life today. Paul is worthy and deserving off all the gifts of heaven. I am so sorry for his family and friends who must travel the rest of this journey without him. I send this message with all my love.

Our VP Joe Biden spoke on Memorial Day and said something that I took to heart..this isn't an exact quote. "There will come a day, I promise....when the thought of (your loved one) brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye. It will happen."
That is my hope for all of you. When someone you love is snatched away without warning, everything just stops. I hope your strength, your faith and your love for one another will help you through your biggest challenge ever.

I met Paul just twice. Once, in Ithaca, when I walked around the corner from my job at City Hall to FLPI's office on Cayuga Street to pick up some books on writing for radio that he'd offered to lend me. The second time was several years later, in Arlington, VA, when Paul visited WETA (where I was then working) to explore a broadcast partnership. The fact that I remember him so clearly and so fondly after two brief encounters is a testament to his exuberance and larger-than-life personality. Mere minutes in Paul's presence left an indelible, positive impression. What a remarkable man. What a tremendous loss. A life well and fully lived, yet a life far too short. My deepest sympathy to his wife, his children, and all who loved him.

Dear Karen and Family
My sympathy for your loss. I wanted you to know how much Paul meant to me. He was a man of hope, ideas, and persistence; a man who cared deeply about his work, family, and friends who smiled easily and often. He never gave up on anyone or anything. I always regretted when he would leave the Smithsonian to head back to his beloved Finger Lakes because I could always use a bit more of his optimism and humor. His loss is a heavy weight, but knowing Paul and his irrepressible good will and optimism he would want us to continue to hope and look upwards… Sully

Karen and family,
The heart stops briefly when someone dies, a quick pain as you hear the news, and someone passes from your outside life to the inside. Slowly the heart adjusts to its new weight, and slowly everything continues sanely. I wish you all the strength in the world as you negotiate this road in life's journey. You are in our prayers and if a hug from afar can make any difference at all, you have it from us. We wish you only support, understanding, and strength.
