Paul Joseph Scally, former Dewey resident Paul Joseph Scally of Sterling, Va., and formerly of Dewey Beach, died Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to a career Army officer, Capt. John Smith Scally and his Austrian-born wife Amelia Obadal Scally. Paul graduated in 1941 from Penn State University with a bachelor of science de- gree. While there, he was a mem- ber of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraterni- ty and the Parmi Nous Honorary Society. A Penn State boxing champion, he earned the Nation- al Collegiate Boxing 'Champi- onship in the light heavyweight class in 1941. During summer breaks from college, he was among the early road builders of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, fa- mously losing his jacket one evening under what the next day had become a huge pile of exca- vated soil. Following graduation, Paul en- listed in the U.S. Army Air Corps to serve in World War II and at- tended Officer Candidate School in Miami Beach, Fla. During the war he was stationed, in Ghana and Algeria and traveled throughout North Africa in- specting the air/ground and point-to-point communications systems in southern Europe and the Middle East. He was recalled to active duty during the Korean War as a lieutenant colonel, re- sponsible for Air Force contracts in the Philadelphia/Camden metropolitan area. After Korea, Paul remained in the Air Force Reserve, retiring as a colonel in 1979. In 1945 Paul married his col- lege sweetheart, Elizabeth (Beth) Virginia Paine. Their first child Susan was born 18 months later. Five years later Stephen was born. With their marriage began a much-loved, 15-year family tra- dition, of annual vacations to Point Pleasant, N.J., to visit and stay with Beth's paternal aunt and uncle in their bungalow on Lake Louise. Paul's professional life was marked by success in marketing defense and transportation technologies to the Defense Department and civilian agencies. In 1986 he retired from the Com- puter Sciences Paul Scally Corporation in Falls Church, Va., continuing for a time to con- sult for CSC. In 1989, Paul and Beth bought their beloved second home in Dewey Beach, overlooking Re- hoboth Bay. They moved there full-time in 1994. Paul was fre- quently seen bicycling around Dewey, and they enjoyed the wa= ter, new friendships, evenings at the old Dewey Beach Club, and frequent visits from children and granddaughters. Beth suffered a disabling stroke in 1995, and in 1996 they moved to Falcons Landing, a retirement communi- ty in Sterling. Following Beth's death in 1998, Paul became an ac- tive volunteer at Falcons Land- ing's Johnson Health Center. In May 1999, Patti married his beloved J.erene Jones ("Jerry"), a widow living at Falcons Landing. Together they volunteered for the Dewey Beach and Sterling Li- ons Clubs and sang and per- formed in many Falcons Landing theatrical presentations. Paul formed and renewed many friendships and reconnected with old friends from the Air Force and fellow alumni from Penn State. A devoted Nittany Li- ons fan throughout his lifetime, Paul was instrumental in the re- vival of boxing as a club sport at Penn State and was recognized in 2003 for his contributions. His most enduring hobby was fol- lowing the stock market and communicating with his broker who became a dear friend. Paul and Jerry enjoyed nearly 13 hap- py years of marriage before Paul's death. Paul is survived by his loving wife Jerene Jones Scally; his de- voted children Susan Scally Slye arid Stephen Paine Scally; and granddaughters Margaret, Catherine, and Elizabeth Slye. He was loved also by Jerry's four children and her grandchildren, who called him "Grand Paul."
