    Paul Joshua Kastin died June 12, 2021, at age 77. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1944 to Isadore and Ruth, he was the youngest of two sons.

    Paul attended Columbia University where he majored in Art History and played on the Columbia Men’s Varsity Tennis team. Graduating Columbia after three years, he then studied at the University of Chicago earning his MBA.

    Upon graduation he was hired by Dubuque Packing and later on by Smithfield Foods in Smithfield, VA where he distinguished himself and attracted the attention of an entrepreneur in Atlanta who called on him to run his new company.

    In 1981, he leveraged his previous executive experience and formed Service Marketing, Inc., a commercial meat brokerage business.

    Paul was a man who relished life’s wonders and opportunities. He held a variety of interests and lived life to the fullest. He was a voracious reader, avid golfer, patron of the arts and world-class traveler. Accompanied by his wife, Rosthema, not only did he visit every corner of the world but would recall the most detailed element of those experiences which inspired so many of his friends and family to pursue the same wonderful experiences.

    Paul also had a wide network of lifelong friends whom he cherished, including those of his Beta Theta Pi fraternity at Columbia. He was a long-time member of the Woodruff Arts Center, Atlanta Symphony, Spivey Hall and numerous other artistic and cultural venues. He was also a member of the Standard Club and more recently, the Druid Hills Golf Club.

    He is survived by his beloved wife, Rosthema Kastin of Atlanta, daughter Leslie Rubin (Dr. Tod Rubin) of Marietta, son Dr. Darren Kastin (Bonnie Kastin) of Deerfield, Illinois and son Avery Kastin of Atlanta, and by his four grandchildren, Harrison Rubin of New York City, Jeremy Rubin of Boston and Spencer and Elliott Kastin of Deerfield, Illinois. He also is also survived by his brother, Dr. Abba Kastin (Dr. Wei Hong) of Sedona, Arizona.

    Memorial Services will be held on Tuesday, June 15th at The Temple, 1589 Peachtree Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30309 at 10:30 am with graveside services to follow at Arlington Memorial Park, Sandy Springs.
