He was born in Pittsburgh, PA on December 22, 1930 to John and Rose (Miller) Walsh.  Paul was a 1948 graduate of Mars High School and a 1952 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy.  He then served in the U.S. Army from 1953-1955. 

His employment in Greenville as a Pharmacist began at the former Foulk's Drug Store and later at the Corner Pharmacy.  In 1978 he built the Medicine Shoppe on S.

    I have been to your home several times and have always enjoyed taking care of Paul. He was such a sweetheart. Mary Alice, you and your husband were so sweet together. I’m surely going to miss him as I know family, friends, and community will feel the deep loss of such a great man. Prayers for the family during this time.

    I don’t know if it is proper to say a Funeral was beautiful, but Paul Walsh’s funeral was the most impressive funeral I have ever seen. From Paul being escorted by his five sons, followed by his loving wife, daughters, grand children and great grand children to the sound of the beautiful bag pipes in the back ground, being played by his nephew, John Walsh. Paul’s daughters were involved in the readings and the offering of the gifts at mass, and son Steve was given the honor of speaking on behalf of the family. The mass would not have been complete without the lovely singing by Dawna Walsh! You raised a great family, Paul Walsh, and we will miss you.
