Paul Richard Maihan passed away on March 9, 2021 at the age of 72 in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. His determination and will to live life to the fullest was evident until the very end.

Paul was an economist by trade but will be most remembered for his deep appreciation of great food and wine. He enjoyed nothing more than sharing fine cuisine with family and friends.

Paul is survived by his wife of 45 years, Marian (Sundheim) Maihan, his devoted daughter Stephanie (Maihan) Lindley and husband Brian, and two adoring grandchildren Evan and Megan. He is also survived by sisters Marilyn O’Connor of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and Joan Miller of Phoenix, Arizona. He is preceded in death by brother Tony Maihan of Montgomery Alabama and sister Carolyn Plaskon of Surprise, Arizona.

Paul will be dearly missed by all who knew him. A celebration of life will be held at a later date, at which time it is safe to gather.

Contributions in Paul’s honor can be made to the Maryland Food Bank, Attn: Donor Services, 2200 Halethorpe Farms Road, Baltimore, MD 21227.

You were my first friend when I came to Baltimore and you and Paul have been constants in our life. Paul introduced us to dinner group and we had many dinners out as well as Paul's gourmet home cooked meals where he was trying out a new recipe. Always a kiss, smile, bottle of wine and enjoyment or not of the meal and then an OK Marian, let's go. His wonderful laugh, Pittsburgh accent, and being Chief to Meghan and Evan will always bring a smile to me. We will miss our great friend. Love to Stephanie and you.

I'm so sorry to hear about Paul. My condolences to Marian and Stephanie, his son-in-law and beautiful grandchildren. I have known Paul and Marian for many decades, and Paul was always kind, considerate and funny. I don't remember ever hearing say a cross word about anybody or any thing. He will be missed.

I was saddened to see Paul's passing thru the Sunpapers. Altho we haven't been in touch for many years, I remember Paul as a kind and generous person, with a healthy sense of humor. When I knew him, he was a good friend, who loved life outside the box of 'economics'. My deepest condolences to you, Marian and to his family.

I will miss my good friend Paul. I admired his discriminating taste for food and wine. It worked out best when following his lead, whether meeting for lunch or when Lynn and I joined Paul and Marian for dinner out or at their home. He admired and could prepare a well plated dish paired with the proper wine. Paul had a discerning mind, he knew what he liked and what he did not. For me he was a good listener and gave his frank opinion, nothing more could be asked of a good friend. A reunion down the road for sure, until that day valued memories.
