It’s not customary to mention members who have passed away in our newsletter, but we felt it is important to honor Paul Cribb who was one of our founding members and instrumental with spear heading card games and bingo. We probably wouldn’t have bingo today if it wasn’t for Paul. Paul and his wife Hildy previously lived in the Satellite Beach area for 50 years. He passed away peacefully at the age of 91 at the Pavilion at Bayview Assisted Living Facility in St. Augustine. Paul and Hildy had moved to that area to be closer to their daughter Cookie. While serving in the armed forces in Germany he met and married his wife of 72 years, Hildy. Together they had four children and numerous grandchildren. Paul was a well-respected business man at Charlie’s Pizza, Hess Service Station and Cribb’s Coral. During his retirement years he valued community involvement and it’s when he connected with the 55+ Club. In addition to heading up Thursday Cards & Games and Monday Bingo, Paul and Hildy played Santa and Mrs. Claus for many, many years at the clubs annual holiday luncheons. Their daughter Cookie writes, “Please let everyone know my dad has missed them and enjoyed the many happy memories of the activities, fun, and friends he had at the 55+ Club”. Rest in Peace dear friend!
