Paul Warech, age 86 of Vineland, passed away on April 6, 2020 due to complications from the COVID virus. He was born in the village of Zavichost, Poland to the late Sarah (Kohn) and Louis Warech on November 12, 1933. Paul, his four siblings and his parents fled the Nazi regime in 1938, finding refuge in Cuba before emigrating to the United States in May of 1944. A proud American, Paul enlisted in the United States Army, serving his country from 1955 – 1957 in the 7th Infantry Battalion stationed in Fort Benning, GA.
Raised in Brooklyn, Paul attended the Yeshivah Torah Vodaath Preparatory School. He later graduated from Ner Yisroel College for Men in Baltimore. Paul married the love of his life, Alice Kaiser, in 1960. The couple settled first in Carmel and later in Vineland, where they continued to live while raising their three children, Michael, Gary, and Diane. Paul was the proprietor of Tri-City Lumber and Hardware in Millville for more than 25 years. Retiring from his own business in 1990, Paul continued to work in the lumber and home building industry in the Vineland area.
A loving husband, father, father-in-law, and grandfather, Paul was happiest in the presence of his family. He was a gracious and humble man with an easy smile and sharp intellect, nicknamed “Uncle Paul Newman” by his nieces and nephews given his resemblance to the actor. A dedicated member of the Beth Israel Synagogue Congregation in Vineland throughout his lifetime, Paul served as a frequent Torah reader and assistant for congregational worship.
A remarkable athlete, Paul represented the U.S. Army competing in the National A.A.U. Four-Wall Handball Tournament in New York City in 1956. Gifted with incredible speed and hand-eye coordination, under different circumstances, it was widely surmised that Paul would have easily had a career playing Major League Baseball. His final years were spent at the Lester Senior Living Center in Whippany, NJ.
Predeceased by his wife Alice of 59 years, Paul is survived by his three children, Michael, Gary, and Diane; daughters-in-law Susanne Reilly and Tracey Roberts; and five grandsons, Travis, Jacob, Jesse, Zach, and Max; his brother Martin Warech of Mantua; sister-in-law Claire (Goldstein) Warech of Clark; sister and brother-in-law Ruth (Kaiser) and Stanley Rosenblum of Monroe; and many, many loving relatives and friends in the United States, Europe, and Israel.
