Paul L. Clare of Wall Township passed away on March 24, 2020, at the age of 69, after a long struggle with Multiple Sclerosis. Paul attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in NY for Engineering. He was a past president and partner in Bay Pointe Engineering, Pt. Pleasant, NJ. He loved the technical aspects of engineering and passed that love on to his son, Mark, developed from early years of building blocks and later building intricate LEGO models together. One of Paul’s many projects was the design for the soccer complex in Wall Township, where he later spent many years watching his daughter Kathryn perfect her soccer skills. Paul was very congenial, loved good food, fine wine, sunny vacations and was extraordinarily good at trivia. Known as PC by his friends, he was the captain of his basketball team at St. Joseph’s High School, where he also played football and baseball.
