Like most in the past year, Paul Prentiss has made some adjustments, and, at 64, that can be a daunting task. Fortunately for Prentiss, some constants remain, like the love of his two daughters, Rachel and Eva, and a great head of hair. 

Before a successful law career in workers compensation defense, Prentiss earned a master’s in agronomy. Now nearing retirement, he enjoys living in the midcentury bachelor pad designed by his eldest daughter, Rachel.

“I don’t really have a bucket list,” he said, “except for travel.” Having recently met a woman online who’s also into travel and bicycling, he now has a companion with whom to visit the old country of the British Isles and experience the natural wonders of every state in
the Union.

Prentiss continues to work from home and occasionally dons suit and tie to go into the office. “You do better work when you’re dressed up,” he said. Prentiss favors putting together business-casual looks from his assortment of sport coats and vests. “Suit and tie is almost too easy—I like the challenge of working with patterns and fabrics…and at my age, vests keep me warm!”

Prentiss’ innate sense of style will transport him into new adventures, while his vintage record collection will allow him travel back in time every now and again.
