Remembering a Sweet Guy

Paul Nonte
The grapevine connecting former colleagues again proved a conduit of sad news when word that a gentle, talented, genuinely nice guy we worked with at Roman followed in Robin Williams’ footsteps by committing suicide after a long battle with depression. Paul Nonte was the real deal: kind and wise and unruffled–even when everyone else threw artistic tantrums, whined and complained. I recall talking to him about his Indiana roots years ago. He returned there to be buried as loved ones grapple with the question, “Was there anything I could have done to prevent this?” Sadly, the answer never changes.
