Paul H. Hennigin, 82, passed away on Sunday October 7, 2018.

Paul was born in Akron on December 13, 1935.  He lived in the Akron area his whole life and spent his career working for Acme.  He was an avid fisherman and spent much of his time on Portage Lakes, Mogadore Reservoir, Tappan Lake and Rice Lake.
