Obituary of Phillip Pauro
Phillip Francis Pauro, 37, of Audubon, PA, formerly of Lafayette Hill, PA, passed away unexpectedly on June 6, 2018.
He is survived by his immediate family, Hilary (Whitney), his wife of eight years, and his two children, Thomas (7) and Lily (6). He is also survived by a large family, including his parents, Francis “Frank” and Karen (McLaughlin) Pauro of Mount Laurel, NJ; his sister, Monica Pauro of Washington Township, NJ; his parents-in-law, Wayne and Barbara Whitney of Moorestown, NJ; his brother-in-law, Chris Whitney of New York; his sister-in-law, Andrea Moran and her husband, Chris, of Radnor, PA; and five nieces and nephews (Ryan, Paige, James, Catherine and Charlotte).
Born in Voorhees, NJ, Phil graduated from Cherry Hill West High School and then Penn State University with a B.A. in Business and Marketing. He spent the last ten years working at Icon Clinical Research of Lansdale, PA, most recently as a Senior Project Manager, Data Management.
Phil’s most important role was being a devoted husband and father. He provided his family with love, humor, kindness, and respect every day. Phil cherished his children, Thomas and Lily, and being involved in every aspect of their lives. He would wake them up each morning with a hug and end each day, hanging every piece of art work they made for him on the walls of his office, learning about their day and singing them to sleep. He danced with them, swam with them, coached their sports teams, watched sports with them, taught them to ride their bikes, told them jokes, read them stories, and took them to visit many places like the park, the movies, campgrounds, the Little League World Series, or on snow-filled adventures, like sledding or building a huge snow igloo or snow maze. One of his favorite things was surprising his children by picking them up early from school. Phil also enjoyed having the children from the neighborhood over to their house to join them for dinner, to play in the yard or to play on the slip’n slide. And he would always be up for a game of kick the can with his nieces and nephews. Phil was also an avid squash player and a member of the LifeTime Athletic Squash Club.
Phil was a simple, loving man – a perfect husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. With his infectious smile, he demonstrated a passion for life and brought joy to every moment – from impromptu family outings to helping anyone in need. He strived for happiness for his family and friends. He was selfless, always thinking of others before himself. He was simply the BEST!
