Columbus, OH --- Paul Weinrich, 79, educator and horseman, died at home on Aug. 27, 2016, five days after his birthday.

The son of Phillip and Rae Weinrich, he grew up in Queens, N.Y.

A graduate of New York Military Academy, he had a special interest in history and was an avid reader. He went on to Queens College and completed his graduate work at both Queens College and Brooklyn College. After earning his degree he went on to teach in Orange County then returned to New York City where he was an elementary school teacher in Brooklyn.

His true passion was always horses. He bought his first horse when he was a teenager, working on the Wertheim Farm in Livingston Manor. He loved training and teaching horses, taking exceptional care of them, preparing for harness races and having his horses compete in those races.

He was a true friend and touched many lives.

He is survived by his cousins Gertrude and Ross Adams, Diana Thomson, and several other cousins; his very special friends, Vincent "Vinnie" Casale, Jackie Everett and Scott Moroz; and his "adopted" family, Marlene Wertheim, Sheryl Heather, Jason, Kathy, Sarah and Ethan Wertheim; as well as many friends and former students.
