Paul Rosario Pino, age 59, of Middletown, DE, died on Sunday, April 18, 2021, from cancer. He was born on March 21, 1962, in Wilmington, DE, to the late Rosario and Caroline Pino. Paul was the youngest of two brothers and remained close to his brother, Mario and his family, throughout his lifetime.
Paul graduated from Brandywine High School in 1980, where he participated in the band program. During this time, he developed his lifelong interest in the automotive industry.
Shortly after high school, Paul began his career as an automotive technician and in 1983, graduated from the Automotive Training Center. Seeing the impact of electronics and technology on our daily lives, he attended Pennsylvania Institute of Technology and graduated in 1990 with an Associates in Specialized Technology – Computer Engineering.

This goal was realized in 2000, when he graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering.
