The Death of Paul Tamaroff

Paul was born in Albany, New York to Samuel and Edna (Laufman).  He grew up there with his older brother, Alan, and his older sister, Tamara.  After graduating from Albany High School, he studied Aeronautical Engineering at Georgia Tech, but left early to join the Air Force.  He joined the Air Force in 1959, married in 1963, and later was stationed on Guam until being released from Active Duty in 1968.  He then returned with his family to Albany, NY and graduated from Albany Law School in 1971.  He worked with the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, DC.  When a transfer became available in 1973, Paul moved his family to Atlanta, which he recalled fondly from his time at Georgia Tech.  He remained in the Air Force Reserves until 1979.  He and his wife divorced in 1980.
In 1983, Paul and his second wife, Deb (married 1988), started Attorneys’ Personal Services, which performed legal work and service of process.
Paul served as President of NAPPS (National Association of Professional Process Servers) 1994 – 1995 and again 2009 – 2010.  He also served as the Arbitration & Grievance Chairman for many years.
He was a founding member of GAPPS (Georgia Association of Professional Process Servers) and remained a Board Member since its inception in 2000.  In 2006, CALSPro (California Association of Legal Support Professionals) named him the recipient of the Bert Rosenthal Memorial Award.  Paul helped develop and taught the Continuing Education courses for Certified Process Servers.
Paul and Deb ran the business together until her passing in October 2019 (glioblastoma).  Paul finally retired in December 2019 at the age of 79.  He was still riding a motorcycle until August of this year when he started chemotherapy.  Unfortunately, his stomach cancer wasn’t diagnosed early enough for the treatment to be successful.  He passed away at home on 1 December, 2020, and he was buried with Military Honors at Georgia National Cemetery.  He is survived by his sister and two daughters.
If anyone is inclined to raise a glass, his standard drink at the end of the day was Wild Turkey 101, and he occasionally indulged in an Islay Scotch.

Passing of Deborah Duchon

It is with sadness that we inform you that one of our members has passed away. Deborah Duchon was a founding member of GAPPS and was an integral part of our organization to say she will be missed is a understatement. Our prayers and sympathies are with her husband Paul Tamaroff as well.

GAPPS 6th Annual Conference was a Success!

GAPPS ANNUAL CONFERENCE

 

GAPPS’ Sixth Annual Conference, on March 24, 2018 at the Manual Maloof Auditorium in Decatur was highly successful. In addition to the conference meeting during which the membership adopted a new set of amended bylaws, the membership got to discuss a substantial number of appellate decisions affecting “due diligence” in so far as it affects service by publication; cases discussing whether process servers, by their actions could be found to be agents of their attorney clients; and, a recent Georgia Supreme Court case reversing 40 years of case law in the area of trespass.

 

In addition to the case law, guest speakers Ryan Dunlap and Jane Holmes presented excellent discussions on tactful communication and “Situational Awareness”. During the barbeque luncheon GAPPS members get to renew acquaintances with other servers around the State. Certified Process Servers fulfilled their annual 5-hour CE requirement and those who are also private investigators received 5 hours towards their CE requirements.

 

Everyone was in agreement that the experience was valuable and one that could not be duplicated on line.

 

Paul K. Tamaroff, President
