Paulhus, Jr., 67, of Rockville, Md., passed away on August 25, 2017. Son of the late Norman G. Paulhus, Sr. and Kathryn Swartz Paulhus, he is survived by his loving sister, Kathy Fain of Rockville. Though Paulhus never worked for the Coast Guard during his 35-plus years of government service, Paulhus voluntarily provided an informal Coast Guard communications service which became known as "Norm Net." At its peak, more than 1,000 members of Team Coast Guard, including reservists, active, Auxiliary, civilians, retirees, contractors and family members received media reports, press releases and newsletters about the Coast Guard. As an employee of the Department of Transportation, Paulhus's office was located next to the Coast Guard's Congressional Affairs Office, and the two offices shared the same mail stop. "Things just took off from there," Paulhus told friends, "and over the years I just got sort of 'adopted' by the Coast Guard family." Despite severe health problems that took him "offline" for several years, Paulhus stayed up to date through friends, and he celebrated 65th birthday surrounded by his Coast Guard family. He was celebrated at a funeral Mass in Olney, Md., and interred at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Silver Spring, MD. He will be remembered fondly. Issue 4 • 2017 � RESERVIST 59
