Obituary for Paul D Segalini

Paul Dante Segalini, 76, of Kendall Park, NJ, passed away on March 11, 2019.

He was born in Greenwich Village, New York City, on August 15, 1942, to Louis and Amalia Segalini. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Grace; son, David, and his wife Emily and their two daughters, Olivia and Claire; daughter, Christa, and her husband Alexander; and daughters Jennifer, Stephanie and Elizabeth from a previous marriage. He was preceded in death by his mother and father; his older brother, Louis “Buddy”; and his beloved brother-in-law, Joseph Paterno.

Paul graduated from Brooklyn College and spent his career at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. His sharp wit, sense of humor and fairness earned him the respect and admiration of his staff and colleagues, and eventually he rose to become the Director of Human Resources, and finally the Director of Labor Relations, during a seminal period in the Port Authority’s history. He was a survivor of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and was involved in the Port Authority’s response to those events. He retired in 2007 after more than 44 years with the Port Authority.

After Paul’s marriage to Grace, they eventually settled in Montgomery Township, New Jersey, to raise their family. In Montgomery, they made many lifelong friends and became part of the community there. Family was the most important thing to Paul. He gave them the very best of himself. He loved telling stories about growing up in “the Village” and of his grandparents who helped to raise him as a little boy. He was a lover of all things Italian, and enjoyed debating and discussing history, international relations, culture and politics with family and friends.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 14, at Hillsborough Funeral Home, 796 US-206, Hillsborough, NJ. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, March 15, at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 158 West High Street, Somerville, NJ.
