Paul passed away suddenly on 02/11/2024.

Survived by his wife, Barbara; his daughter, Ellen; and many cousins and friends. He is predeceased by his parents, Frank and Mary Sadler.

Paul was born and raised in Rochester, New York. He attended St. Boniface for primary school, and graduated from McQuaid Jesuit High School. After earning a degree in physics from St. John Fisher College, he returned to McQuaid where he assumed many roles including registrar, mathematics teacher, department chair, and track and field events/weight-training coach during a career that spanned over 45 years. He enjoyed his students and especially loved teaching them the trials and tribulations of Calculus AB and BC. He completed his Masters in Education at Nazareth College.

Paul competed in track and field in high school and college, specializing in throwing events. At one point, his name was on five varsity field events records for the longest throw and the farthest jump. He was a member of the Greater Rochester Track Club and inducted into their Hall of Fame. He won medals in the shotput and discus at the Empire State Games. He was a certified track official for decades at both high school and college meets.

Paul and Barbara met at a computer conference run by the Jesuits at Cornwall on the Hudson, near NYC. She was sent to the conference by Canisius High School in Buffalo where she was teaching mathematics and he was sent by McQuaid. The Jesuits were great matchmakers.

He loved to travel and visited all 50 states and every Canadian province with his wife and daughter. They have been to Greenland, Iceland, and numerous countries in Europe and the Caribbean. Paul and Barbara visited South American countries, Antarctica, and the Panama Canal.

Paul was an avid reader and loved all books, especially the Bible and non-fiction historical books. He enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles and solving the Jumble as well as other logic puzzles. He was an avid Old Western movie and TV show viewer; one of his favorites was “The Lone Ranger.”
