Paul Sci: A kidder, and a nice guy

Lynbrook resident Paul Sci celebrated his 100th birthday with friends and family at the Lynbrook Senior Center last week. His actually birthday is February 14 – Valentine’s Day.

Born on 108th street in New York City, Sci was one of six children, and is now the only survivor of all of his family, “even my in-laws and outlaws,” he said.

He and his wife, Katherine, the president of the Lynbrook Senior Club, have been married for 15 years. “You have to treat them good or they run away on you!” he joked.

He was a New York City bus driver, but and used to love to bow. “I could probably cold still throw a ball,” he said, “but I don’t know where it would land.”

His daughter, Lucille, who traveled from Boca Raton, Florida, for the party, said that her father was “one of the nicest, kindest men.”
