In Loving Memory of my cousin Paul ~ we are SO proud of you


Heart defect cuts short bright future on May 27th.


"He was a leader, a caring father and husband who inspired others through his perseverance and faith. And by the time he died at just 23, Paul Trader had accomplished things that would have made men twice his age proud.
Sunday afternoon, he succumbed to the congenital heart failure he'd fought much of his life. It happened while he was napping in his mother's Arnold home in the middle of a day that was filled with church activities.
A fixture on the Anne Arundel Community College campus, he lived in Annapolis with his wife Michele and their 1-year-old daughter Callie.
Mr. Trader never let the heart disease slow him down.
He was Student Association president at AACC from 2003 to 2005. In those two years, he managed to make an enduring impression on the school and its students. His friends remember a simple walk across campus with Mr. Trader took much longer than usual because of all of the students, faculty and staff he knew.

About a week before he died, he graduated University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he earned his bachelor's degree in biotechnology."
