Default Paul Fusco of Fusco Auctions

Don't have any knowledge, but saw a few things on Twitter suggesting he passed away. Sure must be a friend of many on the board.

I knew Paul through his advertising frequently on our forum and also meeting him at several National Conventions. This is truly a very sad day. Paul was just a great guy to hang out with and talk for awhile. He will be missed by a lot of hobbyists, including myself, in addition to other family and friends, I am sure. RIP friend.

He always ran top notch live auctions. My wife and I attended a few of his auctions in the past. He was a great guy.

I am extremely saddened to learn that Paul died. I followed his auctions, and then at this year's National he was set up next to our LUTFA booth. I talked with him a number of times during the National and our conversations were mostly about stamps. He was an expert on stamp collecting and spent most of his downtime in the booth cataloging recently acquired stamp collections for an upcoming auction. During our first conversation Wednesday I told him about my interest in Hawaiian stamps, and the next day he showed me some amazingly rare early Hawaiian stamps.

He was a real collecting polymath, and I am sorry I didn't have the opportunity of knowing him sooner, and longer.

RIP, Paul.

What a character. I really enjoyed talking to him. His Strongsville show was my favorite show next to the National. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. My condolences to his family and his great many friends.
