Obituary of Paul E. Dolan

Paul Edward Dolan, 21, of Kinnelon, New Jersey passed away October 10, 2020.  


Born in Glen Ellyn, Illinois to Ann and Mark Dolan, Paul and his family moved to Kinnelon in 2002, where he has been a lifelong member of the community.  He was currently a junior, studying Business at the University of West Virginia.  Paul enjoyed being outdoors with friends; fishing, playing on the KHS basketball team, hiking, spending time at the shore and riding his dirt bike.  What he loved most was simply being with his friends and family.  Paul touched so many lives with his loyalty, kindness, smile and laughter.  “Paul always had your back.”
