St. Johns County Commissioner Paul Waldron

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – St. Johns County Commissioner Paul Waldron passed away Monday. The St. Johns County commission meeting began with the sad news Tuesday morning.

“This is going to be tough for me to get through so bear with me,” Henry Dean, who is on the board of commissions, said. “We lost Paul Waldron last night. Paul did so much for the community that no one knew about.”

Waldron was hospitalized with COVID-19 back in 2020 and had to use a motorized chair after getting out of the hospital.

Waldron was a lifelong resident of St. Johns County. He was a husband, father, son, volunteer coach and so much more.

“Our hearts are sad this morning,” Dean said. “Let’s all keep Paul — the family — Stephanie and the children in our prayers.”
