In Memory

Paul Bogert

Paul Bogert

I am saddened to learn of Paul F. Bogerts passing in 2007.  During our Senior year we were close.  Paul wanted to be baptized as a Catholic and asked me to be his Godfather.  Why he chose me I don't know. The SSDI confirmed that he died on June 24, 2007, in St. Joseph, MI.  I have not been able to find the Obituary.  Posted by Joseph Tomanelli

Paul and I were good friends during the part of our Senior year that I was fortunate to spend in Park Ridge.  He did a lot to make me feel "at home".  We remained friends after Graduation and I introduced him to his wife (Fran) who was in nursing school with me.  Unfortunately, we lost contact and I was looking forward to seeing him at the reunion.  He will be missed!
