CAPT Paul Middents

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of CAPT Paul Middents, USN (RET), a distinguished 30 year career submariner and proud member of the Naval Submarine League, USSVI (Subvets) and Military Officers Association of America, surrounded by his loving and devoted family. Paul was 79 years old.

This is an advanced notice for inclusion in the various communication vehicles for the organizations of which Paul was a member.  The family will undoubtedly provide an obituary and plans for services.  Tentative plans indicate inurnment at Tahoma National Cemetery with a small group of family and friends. A Memorial Service celebrating Paul’s life will be held in late June. Paul’s circle of friends will endeavor to keep all friends, shipmates and fellow horologists advised of future plans.

Please visit our Facebook page.  You’ll find all the scuttlebutt there.
