Paul Voltura


Paul Voltura, 72, passed away on Sunday, July 26, 2020 in Redding, Calif.

He was born on Nov. 6, 1947 in Batavia, N.Y. to Angelo and Angeline (Gringer) Voltura.

Paul had many passions including fishing, bowling, welding and cooking. All of which he used to make a living. Paulie was a friend to everyone he met and could schmooze the best of them. He was an active community member volunteering his cooking, welding or fly fishing services to many organizations in his community and beyond. He loved his family and friends deeply and he had a lot of them!

He is survived by his son Greg (Nickey) Voltura of Indian Falls, N.Y., daughter Debbie (Tom) Shea of Batavia, N.Y. and daughter Felisa (Adam) Westlake of Fall River Mills, Calif. As well as three grandsons, Angelo Voltura, Eli Westlake & Davin Westlake and three granddaughters, Sara Voltura, Melissa Voltura & Addison Shea.

He has more aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews than can be listed in one newspaper!

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you share your favorite story of Paulie at and donations may be made out to The Miami Project (on behalf of the Ricky Palermo Spinal Injury Tournament) and mailed to Debbie Shea at 9395 Shepard Rd. Batavia, NY 14020.

A memorial service will be held in the fall (possibly around his birthday) in California pending social distancing rules.
