Paul R. Boardman
Mr. Paul R. Boardman, age 88, of Newark, DE, passed away on Wednesday, June 1, 2011, at Christiana Hospital.
Born in Carneys Point, NJ, on October 8, 1922, Paul was the son of the late Raymond L. Boardman, Sr. and Clara A. Hensz. He proudly served his country in the US Marine Corps during World War II.
In civilian life, Paul made his career with the DuPont Company where he worked for 37 years until his retirement as a plant manager. Among his community affiliations, he was a longtime member of the Fraternal Order of Police.
Paul was interested in all types of sports throughout his life. For many years, he greatly enjoyed accompanying his daughter, Kim, to her equestrian competitions where the proud father would videotape each of her events. He truly loved children and was pleased to see them excel in athletics. As a popular fan at William Penn, Wilmington College, and, more recently, Caravel sporting events, he cheered for the success of all the student athletes. Known affectionately by family and friends as a modern nomad, Paul delighted in traveling and particularly enjoyed cross country trips with the George Alderman Racing Team.
He is survived by his daughters, Judith Ann Veit and husband, Henry, of Pinellas Park, FL, and Kim Memmolo of Newark, DE; sisters, Virginia Boardman and Betty B. Waddington, both of Woodstown, NJ; grandchildren, Jennifer Brown and Henry Hank Veit; and two great grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Raymond L. Boardman, Jr.
A funeral service will be held at 2 pm on Monday, July 11, 2011, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where visitation will begin at 12 noon. Interment will be held privately.
