Gene Frank Paulin Sr., 85, a native of Louisville passed away on Friday June 29th, 2018 at Norton’s Women and Children Hospital.

This Emerson quote sums up his life: “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you lived and lived well.” He lived well.
We hope he knew how much we appreciated all of the things he did for us and how much we loved him.
