Paul B. York, a proud coalcracker from Nesquehoning, PA passed away on Friday, Sept 3, 2021 at St Martha Villa in Downingtown, PA.

Paul earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Villanova in 1950. And served in the Army for several years. He worked as an Insurance Agent and later as a Financial Advisor. His passions were Villanova Basketball, traveling, golf, playing bridge and telling stories of years gone by. Like changing his birth date to a year earlier so he could drive the delivery truck for the family grocery store during WWII. He was a true patriot with a love of God, Country and his family. Everyone was met with a big smile and a “Hey how are you”. He is loved and missed by many.
He will be interned at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery at a later date.
