Paul Bacon 1948 - 2022

We are very sad to report that Northampton Bridge Club member Paul Bacon has died. A Diamond Life Master, Paul was a longtime member of the club, and he rarely missed a game on Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon. Paul played his last games with his long time partner Philippe Galaski, and two of his many students Liz Hildebrandt and Yan Drabek. Paul will be greatly missed! The funeral will be held on Wednesday, March 16th at 11 AM at the All Saints Church located at 17 North Street in Ware, MA. It will be followed by a graveside ceremony at the New Saint William cemetery nearby. People are also invited to join the family at Teresa's Restaurant at 315 Palmer Rd, Ware. Please click here to read Paul's obituary. Bid what you have. Do not play with fear! ------ Paul Bacon NOTE: The Northampton Bridge Club's Wednesday game on March 16th at 1PM has been cancelled!
