Paul David Hande
08/20/1984 - 11/17/2022
We are sad to announce the passing of Paul David Hande, born and raised in Sarasota, FL. Paul passed away at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on November 17, 2022. We will never forget his laugh, charm, and love of family and friends.
He had the most extraordinary comedic lousy luck. One of our favorite stories is The North Jetty and the Watch. Paul had a new watch he took off to protect it. He laid it next to his rucksack behind him. Paul started casting and unbelievably snagged the silver timepiece with his hook on the backswing of the cast. In slow motion, he watched it hit the water.
Paul was never without a fishing rod and pool stick. The fishing and the billiard gods blessed him. We are somewhat shocked he didn’t pull in a snook with that Casio. He recharged by being around people he loved and being close to the water.
Paul is survived by his parents, David Hande of Venice, FL, Karen Hande of Sarasota, FL, brother Jensen Hande of Portland, ME, sister Amanda Pearce of Lake City, FL, and aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as friends.
Paul was preceded in death by his brother Phillip Edward Hande.
