It is with sadness and an appreciation for a life well-lived that we announce that our friend, event partner, community-minded volunteer, and enthusiastic baseball fan Paul Sturges passed away on May 25. Paul was a proud member of the Mohegan Tribe (his tribal name was G’Michmikigwon – meaning “he who strengthens thee”) and he served on its Tribal Council. Paul loved the game of baseball. He supported local leagues financially, he coached at the grassroots level, he looked forward to the Mohegan Sun World Baseball & Softball Coaches’ Convention every year, and he genuinely enjoyed being around the game. He also served on the Connecticut Sports Foundation Against Cancer Board (now the Connecticut Cancer Foundation). Most of all, he loved his family very much and was incredibly proud of them. We honor Paul and know his legacy will live on through the many causes, community organizations and individuals he touched during his life. Calling hours/visitation for Paul will take place on Saturday, June 8, at Montville Funeral Home from 10am to 12noon, followed by a graveside service at 12:30pm at Fort Shantok Burial Grounds. Our thoughts are with Paul's family at this difficult time. Here is a link to Paul's obituary, which includes memorial donation information: www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/theday/name/paul-sturges-obituary?id=55257205 ... See MoreSee Less

Paul was such a wonderful man. I looked forward to seeing him each year at World Softball Coaches’ Convention. He genuinely supported softball and opened his heart to all of the players running around the event. I will miss him very much.
