Paul Cuomo, PLS, Passes Away

Paul Cuomo, PLS, the founder and president of Pacific Land Seminars and owner of Paul Cuomo Press, died on Dec. 2, 2008. He had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in August 2008. He passed peacefully with his family by his side. Cuomo began his surveying career in 1958 with the California Division of Highways (Cal Trans). He became a licensed land surveyor in 1973 and that year started teaching boundary classes at Santa Ana Junior College. He left Cal Trans in 1980 and joined the Orange County Surveyor’s Office as deputy county surveyor.

He “retired” in 1993 to become a consultant in the boundary and mapping fields. He was co-author of “Advanced Land Descriptions” and author of “Surveying Principles for Civil Engineers.” He had been an Expert Examiner for the State Board of Registration and had presented classes and seminars in seven states. Cuoma was past president of the California Land Surveyor’s Association and chairman of the California Foundation for Land Surveying Education. A memorial scholarship fund is planned.
