Paulie was born in Wilmington, DE the son of Paul W. Weyant and the late Sharon Ann (Jamison) Weyant, on August 24, 1974.
While in treatment for cancer at the age of 17, Paulie attended First State School which enabled him to then return to William Penn High School where he was able to graduate with his fellow classmates in 1993. He enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest, taking nothing for granted. His infectious smile touched the lives of many and he never met a stranger. Paulie was an avid Redskins fan. His love for football began at an early age where he played for St. Mary Magdalene Redskins. Later he played for the New Castle Bulldogs as a quarterback, and was instrumental in leading them to the championship. His love of sports transitioned into adulthood where he coached several sports for his daughter at Our Lady of Fatima. He was also very intrigued by the paranormal. Most importantly, above all else, he loved his family and his dogs.
