Paul Franklin Siceloff
(24 Feb 1938 - 01 May 2005)

Newport News High School Class of 1956

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   There is more sad news today.  

From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 05/03/05:

I wanted to inform you of a death in the Daily Press today. It is for Paul F. Siceloff. He passed away
on May 1, 2005. According to the article he graduated from Newport News High School in the class
of 1956 (this would be the class of Adrienne Nettles Holderby, among many others)...It states that
he had a long struggle with cancer. I recall his family living on Buxton Avenue near Kecoughtan Road...
actually, that would be 25th Street....we often referred to that as the former as it was so close to the
Hampton line. I understand he was from a good family....

   Thank you so much, Fred.  I really appreciate your bringing this to my attention.

  NEWPORT NEWS - Paul F. Siceloff passed away on Sunday, May 1, 2005, after a long struggle with cancer. Paul was born Feb. 24, 1938, and was quite proud of being a Newport News native and living here all his life.

After a 30-year career as a government auditor with the Defense Contract Audit Agency, Paul retired in 1994. Paul's greatest love was the shooting sports and he spent many hours at the Lafayette Gun Club and was president of Beaver Dam Hunt and Gun Club in New Kent County.

Siceloff and wife, Louise, of Thomasville, Ga., and Warren J. Siceloff of Basking Ridge, N.J. He also has many nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank especially the Personal Touch Hospice personnel, Chris, Sandra and Jennifer and the staff of Virginia Oncology. There is a special place in Paul's heart for his brother-in-law, Harlan Hamby, who spent many hours and days helping him any time day or night. The family will receive friends from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, at Peninsula Funeral Home. A funeral service will be conducted at 1 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home, with the Rev.

I just wanted to express my condolences regarding Paul's passing. We worked together at the Newport News Residence Office. I always enjoyed Paul's wit and his desire to do the right thing. I know that he cared a great deal for you and that you will miss him. I know that he will want you to be as happy as you can be with your memories of your life together. God bless you and your family.
