Tribute and the Future

Paul J. Canfield
3rd Gen
Keith Canfield & Aaron Rolph

Paul J. Canfield, our founder, served in the U.S. Marine Corps in WWII, and received the Purple Heart after being wounded in Guam. He opened up for business in 1947 and his three sons (Nolan, Scott & Dan) joined him in the early 1970's. Over the years the business grew from a radiator repair shop to a comprehensive cooling system service facility and distribution center serving parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and New Jersey.

Paul enjoyed being active in the business he loved. He was particularly proud of appearing on the cover of the July 1994 issue of The Automotive Cooling Journal with his three sons. His great enthusiasm and love were always evident in his priorities of family and business.

Paul passed away September 26, 1997 at the age of 76. He is fondly remembered by his wife, Irene, their five children: Maureen, Nolan, Scott, Bonnie, Dan and many grandchildren, friends and associates.

As third generation we are dedicated to the customer service that the community has trusted for over 68 years and will continue the Canfield Tradition for years to come.
