Paul and I both worked at General Dynamics (GTE Sylvania). I got to know him through the quarter century club. He was president several times. I remember him as very kind and always there to help. He was well respected by everyone. RIP Paul.

I was deeply saddened by the news of cousin Paul's passing. Paul and I exchanged season's greetings and occasional notes over the years. I always looked forward to receiving his beautiful Xmas cards and warm wishes, where he never forgot to mention "Daisie"! There are fond memories: his summer visits to New Brunswick, his mom's (Aunt Mary) birthday party in Waltham where we all got together, Jim's birthday party, among others. My sincere condolences to those who loved him. Adieu to my cousin Paul, a wonderful human being.

Paul and I were great friends since grammar school, at the French school parish in Waltham, also altar boys there. Then we went to Saint Charles high school together where I met my wife, Judy and he met his girlfriend Norma at the time and we would double date and we graduated in 1962 together and we kept in touch through the years and still remain friends to this day. I know you are in heaven, so please put a good word in for me and Judy so we can get there with you. Love, Len and Judy.

RIP Uncle Paul..You were a Kind Soul with a Big Heart. Growing up we always look forward to your visits, especially around the holidays. My Dad Jimmy, (your brother) was always so proud of you. You both had a very challenging up bringing with the death of your Dad Max so young and just your Mother Mary raising you two. God Bless her soul, and she did a great job. When we all got older and grew distant, sadly it would only be funerals that brought us all together. Still, in those tough times it brought great joy to my heart to see you and our family together. Even with the distance over the past many years you were always Missed and Loved. Please give my Dad, Mana, Little Jimmy, David, Your Jim and all our other family members up there with you a Hug. God Bless..❤️

Paul was a great friend to my Dad, even when he was terminally ill and moved up to Billerica to live with me, Paul and Jim would make the hour drive up and visit with him, making his day every time. After my Dad passed Jim and Paul faithfully attended every memorial mass I had. When Jim passed Paul continued to make every memorial mass I scheduled. My family and I became friends with Paul because of this and we will miss him dearly. Rest in peace my friend and give my Dad a hug for me.❤️

Met Paul in the fall of 2011 while attending morning Mass and saw him each Sunday if I attended the 10am Mass, always had a smile and a hello, Rest in the peace of our Lord Paul, a friend in Christ
