Born in Phillipsburg, N.J., on August 26th, 1963, he was the son of Elizabeth Hansen Paul and the late John W. Paul.
He was a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service for 23 years and will be fondly remembered by the many people he encountered on his mail route in Wilson Borough and, most recently, in the College Hill section of Easton. Prior to the postal service he was employed by Morris County Savings Bank. Michael was a 1981 graduate of Phillipsburg High School and was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Easton.
He is survived by his loving wife, Mary Beth Pany Paul, and beloved daughters, Isabella of Easton and Lindsey at home, brothers, John Paul of Whitehouse Station, N.J., Gary Paul of Phoenix, Arizona, and sister Melanie Paul Stocker of Easton, as well as four nieces.
