January 25, 1940-August 22, 2021
Paul, this little boy from Italy crossed the ocean with his mother, brothers, and sister when he was 10 years old, he carved out a new life here where he met and fell in love with his beautiful French-Canadian wife, Gisele. Together they cultivate a loving and creative family with their four daughters: Betty, Susan, Brenda, and Paula. He enjoyed the families they then created. Paul came from a very big family, he enjoyed his brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, along with his wife’s brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Providing for his large family, Paul became a proud Electrician, and IBEW union member. He loved his craft and encouraged many people to find their path within the brotherhood. Paul was very social. In addition to caring for loved ones he also valued his friends, who he treated like family. He was always there to help whenever you needed a hand, and there was very little he wouldn’t do for you. With a rich life comes rich stories which he always shared with us. He enjoyed sitting around and sharing his life experiences. It wouldn’t matter how many times he told us the same stories we were always intrigued by them. Everyone who ever experienced Paul also experienced all the pleasures he found in life, the cottage, the bonfire, and of course the great food Gisele would whip out at the drop of a hat. In the later part of Paul’s life sparks of joy filled his heart when his two great grandchildren, Peter and Cecelia were present. Paul was so honored and humbled by all the love of his family and friends who celebrated life with him.
