We ask all of Paulie’s friends to meet at a place of their choosing and parade to Amory’s where you can pass by Paulie and his family and give a shout out, honk your horn, rev your engine – any manner that makes you happy and will let Paulie’s family know how much we loved him. This is not just a biker event – we would like to see you in any vehicle – cars, trucks, RVs – if you knew Paulie, this is the time to come out and show your love. And speaking of love and support, the family can use your financial assistance to help defray the funeral expenses. They will accept cash donations – however, if you would like to make a substantial donation in Paulie’s name, please send a check to Amory Funeral Home at the address shown above. We hope to see as many of Paulie’s friends as possible. Be loud, be proud and make him cry – you know how emotional he was. On behalf of Paulie’s family, we look forward to seeing you on Friday. Please share this message with all of your friends and family. Thank you!

Dad didn’t want a wake or a funeral. He wanted a big party and for us all to listen to music and tell stories about him.

We will have the party as soon as the governor lifts the ban on gatherings of more than 10 people. If you want to come celebrate his life, or death, you will hear about the arrangements thru the Bull Island grapevine.
