He is survived by his daughter Dawn Nadasdi, son Mitch Nadasdi, granddaughters Corissa Wolsey and Elizabeth Wolsey, great grandchildren Ethan, Jace, Madalynn, Myah, and more.
Predeceased by parents Bill and Barbara Nadasdi, wife Sharen (Ammie) Nadasdi, brother Bill Jr. Nadasdi, daughter Melody Nadasdi, and son Ron Nadasdi. Paul was well known for his gift of gab, shopping, and routines. He was so proud of his family and enjoyed parading them around to his local hot spots and always lit up when the hungarian word quiz commenced.
Enjoy that lottery in the sky Ampa. We will miss you dearly.
