On behalf of the Borough of Swedesboro we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Paul Eastlack who passed away this week. Paul was a leader of Boy Scout Troop 13 for over 35 years and had a positive impact on countless young people in our community. Paul also was a positive force in our community as a leader of the Kiwanis Club of Swedesboro.
As my next door neighbor for over 30 years I knew Paul as a person who cared deeply about his family and the Swedesboro community. I could not have had better neighbors than Paul and Carole. He was always a true gentleman and although he was a man of few words I enjoyed many conversations with him over the years.
Paul Eastlack is a perfect example of a person who dedicated many, many hours to his community without ever seeking attention or notoriety. He is another member of the Greatest Generation who set an example for others to follow. We thank him for his service to Swedesboro.
In honor of his many years of community service in Swedesboro we will lower the Borough Flags to half staff in honor of Paul Eastlack on Sunday and Monday.
