Dunmore, PA September 17, 1981 ~ March 4, 2019 Date of Service: March 7, 2019

Paul Wahlen III, 37, of Dunmore, lost his battle with addiction on Monday.

Born Sept. 17, 1981, in Plymouth, N.H., he was the son of Patricia Carlucci-Roughan and stepson of Thomas Roughan, of Kingston, N.H.; and the late Paul Wahlen. He was a 2000 graduate of Sanborn Regional High School and was currently working as a counselor's aide at Endless Mountains Extended Care. He was also a handy man that specialized in carpentry and flooring.

Paul loved being a father to his two sons, Evan and Kaiden. He could be found at Evan's baseball and basketball games or doing cannonballs into the pool with Kaiden. Paul was known for his smile and shoe collection. He was an avid Boston sports fan and loved to spend Sundays watching football. Paul was always quick with a joke and ready to lend a helping hand when needed. He loved many and was loved by many.

He was a proud supporter of the recovery community, the 12-Step Program and was a friend of Bill W. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.

Also surviving Paul are his two sons, Evan Minicozzi and Kaiden Wahlen; fiancée, Rachel Cole, of Dunmore; a sister, Ann Marie Wahlen, of Manchester, N.H.; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was also preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Leonard "Spike" Carlucci and Mary T. McDonald Carlucci; and paternal grandparents, Paul and Elisabeth (Grossvatti and Grossmutti) Wahlen.

A service will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Fune­ral Home Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore. 

Friends may call Thursday from 5 to 7 at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Paul Wahlen III Children Memorial Fund c/o FNCB 102 East Drinker Street, Dunmore, PA 18512.

There are. No words to say how sad we are for all of you who loved Paul. We wish we could be with you, please know we are thinking of you. Paul was a gentle spirit with a great sense of humor, hiding the pain of his addiction which he battled for a long time, a loving father, son, brother, loved by his friends and family, sorely missed by all, especially his two sons , mother,sister and stepdad.
