Paul Daniel Hadlock, 69, dedicated baseball and softball umpire

SOUTHPORT — Paul Daniel Hadlock, 69, died Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019, at home while holding his wife’s hand.

Paul is survived by his wife of 45 years, Lou-Ann Hadlock, and their three daughters, Karin Cushman, and her husband, Jason, Jessica Fedele, and her husband, Nik, and Meghan Cartis, and her husband, Daniel. Paul was also a loving “Popeye” to his three grandchildren, McKinley, Addison and Drew Cushman.

Paul was born Oct. 20, 1950, to the late Margaret and Daniel Hadlock and grew up along with his older brother, Kevin, in New Haven, Connecticut. A proud Hoya, Paul graduated from Georgetown University in 1972 and stayed in the Washington, D.C., area, where he met and married Lou-Ann. Together, they raised their family for 25 years in Stafford, Virginia, where Paul was an active leader in the local Lions Club and devoted volunteer for his children’s swim teams.

A big fan of all sports, Paul spent the last 15 years of his life doing what he loved and was an avid golfer at the St. James clubs, and a dedicated umpire for both adult and youth baseball and softball.

A celebration of life service will be held at noon, Friday, Dec. 6, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Southport. A reception will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
