A Great asset to the fishing community was lost early this weak. Paul Cronin "AKA Budha" passed suddenly early this week. Paul worked at Hand's Too and I know he had many friends on the barn. Paul was a good man and loved to help kids experience the sport he loved. I only knew Paul for a short period of time, he touched all those he met, Paul always had a smile and was passionate about fishing and his community, he was a fireman and worked as a dispatcher. My sympathy goes out to his family and those he left behind. Rest In Peace My Friend.

Tim, I knew him from your shop and he was always very pleasant to deal with. When ever I ordered bait it was always there for me and Paul always had a smile. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to his family.

Paul was with us when I went on an open boat trip with Skip Last spring. That was the first time I met the man and he really impressed me as a nice guy. He opened the clams, handed his rod off to another customer when he hooked up, and generally let his fishing knowledge rub off on everyone on the boat. I'm sure he will be deeply missed by many. My prayers go to his family today.

Skip that's a great picture of Paul doing what he loved, They are not sure what it was exactly, so I do not want to talk about something if I don't have all the facts. Pauls funeral is at The church of the Assumption 7100 Seaview Ave Wildwood crest at 11:30 on thurs. I know Pauls smiling down on us working a bucktail on that big jetty in the sky.
