Esmond “Frank Paul” was born in 1927 to Alice and Frank Paul of Chatham, NY.
He was a resident of Vero Beach after moving here from Ghent, NY. His career spanned over 40 years as an Engineer on the New York Central Railroad. He was the third generation in his family to do so. As a young man, he enjoyed woodworking – he built our family home in Ghent, NY and our very first boat – a 17’ wooden motor boat, among other projects. Upon retirement, he enjoyed an afternoon of sailing, a good round of golf or an energetic tennis match. But, most of all, Frank enjoyed his time spent with the love of his life: his wife, Betty, of 72+ years.
During his tenure as a Paratrooper in the U.S. Army, he was stationed in Japan at the end of WWII.
Esmond “Frank” Paul, Jr. passed away on June 12, 2021, in Vero Beach, FL.
He was predeceased by his sister, Barbara Gardinia of Philmont, NY; brothers, Robert Paul of Spencertown, NY, and Ronald Paul of San Francisco, CA.
Mr. Paul is survived by his wife, Betty Paul; his children, John Paul of Staasburg, NY, Pat Rizzo of Vero Beach, FL; four grandchildren, Brad Paul of Wayland, MA, Kim Garland of Pughkeepsie, NY, Ann Paul of Valatie, NY, and Kurt Paul of Valatie, NY; and four great-grandchildren, Jayden, Gabriella, Lucas, and Kylie.
Frank will be laid to rest in the Chatham Cemetery, Chatham, NY. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in memoriam to one’s favorite charity.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
