Pascal, age 88, was born in Charleston. He was a Class of “50” graduate of Bishop England High School. After serving in the Air Force, he returned to Charleston, attending The Citadel as a veteran student and graduating in the Class of 1958. As an educator and athletic coach in the Charleston area, “Coach” touched many young lives and helped to mold young people as productive citizens. Quite a few of the area residents learned to drive with his instruction.
