  1. candlePaul, you were the kindest and most generous man. It was a pleasure to work for you. We will miss you terribly. Rest in peace. Anita

  2. So sorry to hear about Paul’s passing. He was a kind, generous man. May he rest in peace.

  3. To my good friend and coworker Paul: I was honored to have worked along side you as a Customs Liquidator, together once again at our new JFK Airport home, and also for many years with your wonderful Father, Ben. Sadly, your journey is over dear friend, and you may now rest in God’s peace. To your lovely Daughter, Nicole, and other family members and friends, my deepest sympathies. With love…

  4. I have wonderful memories of Paul from our days working together at 6 WTC. He was our social organizer and every year put on our Holiday parties in local downtown NYC establishments. I also dealt with him years later when visiting JFK as a Program Manager over Entry. Paul was always there to help, answer questions and make suggestions for improvement. My deepest sympathies to his family!!

  5. candleRest In Peace Mr Arcario. You brought up an amazing talented daughter. I worked and became good friends with Nicole thru the years. Good job Daddy Arcario! You’ll be missed!

    • Thank you so much Jude! Yes you know of many of the good times and memories I have of my daddy!

  6. Nicole, your father was always a gentleman anytime I would come over to hang out. Some of the best memories I have growing up were coming over and watching to, playing in the basement, in the pool, listening to B*Witched or BSB, and I will never forget your dad offering my first Funion. I was like “the heck is a funion?” And he’s like it’s like a friend onion potato chip! I ate like 3 and said okay thanks. Lol. Ugh your dad had a heart of gold, and I am just happy he is no longer suffering. I love you and miss you so much. May His memory be eternal

  7. I remember working with Paul when I first started at US Customs.
    He was such a kind wonderful person to work with and I have many fond memories. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. God Bless.

  8. Paul as my nephew you were like a second son to me. I will always remember the gifts you sent me and our frequent phone conversations. You will always be treasured in my heart. Rest in Peace. I will miss you terribly.

    • Thank you Aunt Tina! Daddy always loved talking to you and sending you little trinkets! Thank you for always keeping in touch with daddy.

  9. Thank you, Brother Paul, for all of your help with the Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro Lodge #2319 membership and especially with the Scholarship Journal. You were a great committee member. There are several recipients who should thank you for the hours that you spent garnering ads to fund their scholarships. It was a privilege knowing you. Rest in peace. Fraternally, Bob and Gerri Graham

  10. candleRenee T. Morgan, Paul you will be truly missed by all of us. It was such a blessing to know you and your guidance in whatever we all needed to talk to you about individually or as a team with the FP&F family will always be remembered. You are up in heaven with the Lord and in peace now.

    • Thank you very much for your kind words. Dad always spoke about how great of a person you are!

  11. candleRONDA MOORE: Paul, you were always someone I could go to for advice and support. You were my supervisor and yet, you made me feel so comfortable, I also saw you as a friend, a family member and at times a father figure. The last time I saw you, I truly believed I would have seen you again; even if it meant you returning to the office to say hello. I often called you a trooper, a word I used to indicate you persevered through the most difficult of times and God knows you did. May God’s peace be with you as you rest, for I know you are in a better place, dancing with the angels. Paul, you will truly be missed. Keep smiling, keep shining. God bless you and your family during this difficult time.

  12. candleI remember when Paul was first hired by Mr. Kwas how happy and proud his dad Ben Arcario was of him.
    I worked with your grandfather for 20 years and often saw your Dad during those years. He was a hard worker.
    May he rest in peace in heaven with Ben and Josephine.

  13. Rest in Peace my supervisor Paul M Arcario. May your spirit soar with the eagles ! I worked with your daddy for many years at FPF. I missed him.

  14. Sorry for the late posting but I worked with Paul for almost 6 years at JFK before transferring to Newark. Your dad was a good guy, always thought first with his heart. A caring man right down to his core. My condolences on your loss.

  15. I received some very unsettling news today. My former boss and a man who I greatly respected and considered a mentor died. Your dad was a great human being and has been one of the best supervisors I’ve ever work with. Sorry for the late post, I worked with your dad at JFK-FP&F and relocated in 2002 to FL. May his soul rest in peace and may the memories give you comfort.
