The Paul Angel Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund

(Raiser’s Edge Fund:  ANGEL)

This scholarship was created in the memory Paul Angel Jr., graduating class of 2001. He was a member of the Crespi basketball program. His life was ended tragically in a motorcycle accident. Paul was full of life. His family and friends want him memorialized with his legacy.

Paul entered this world “big” on August 14, 1983 weighing 8lbs 14ozs. Everything about him was giant, but mostly his love for family and friends, and his sheer enjoyment of life.  He was tall in stature measuring 6’6”, but his biggest attribute was his enormous heart.  Paul had a heart of gold; he was kind, caring and sensitive to others who had challenges. His endless smile brightened rooms and immediately made you feel at home. He was a blessing to all, and if he was in your life, you were better for it.  

Paul thoroughly relished his years at Crespi.  He felt an immediate connection to the Crespi community from the moment he attended the open house, it was definitive where he wanted to spend the next four years.  The brotherhood between classmates, teachers, and coaches was very powerful.   The friendships, experiences and guidance he encountered helped form him into the incredible man he became.
