It is with profound sorrow that we inform you that Paul Pontiff, a leader of our firm and legal community has passed at the age of 91. Paul joined our firm in 1962 and was active in serving his clients until his passing. A member of many legal associations, Paul is a past president of the Warren County Bar Association and past member of the Executive Committee of the Trust and Estates Section of the New York State Bar Association.
In 2014, Paul was awarded the J. Walter Juckett Community Service Award by the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce and during his lifetime he served many community boards and organizations, including the United Cerebral Palsy Association of the Tri-Counties, Visitors of the Wilton Developmental Center, Queensbury Central Fire Company, Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce, World Awareness Children’s Museum, the Glens Falls Hospital Planned Giving Council, Glens Falls Rotary Club, Glens Falls Civic Center Foundation, Adirondack Civic Center Coalition, SUNY Adirondack Foundation, and Adirondack Vet’s House.
Paul’s hobbies included golf, tennis, and mountain climbing. He was a proud 46er and formerly coached youth hockey and baseball.
Paul is survived by his wife, Judy, and his three sons, Paul, Tom and Matt, and their families. Paul was very proud of his family and all they had accomplished. We join them in cherishing the memories Paul has left us.
