Paul grew up in Boston, MA. He worked as a painter for Boston City Hospital for many years. He was a
hard-working, caring man and he was always available to help someone in need. Music, movies, and
media were always major interests of his. When he was younger, he went to school for radio and
television repair. He enjoyed creating mixtapes, making home movies, and creating photo albums on his
computer. Most of all, he loved watching and talking about different movies. His family always joked
that whenever you called him, he was always “watching a movie”.
Paul loved his family more than anything. He lived in Somerville, MA for many years and served as a live-
in caretaker for his former brother-in-law Kenneth “Kenny” Flaherty for over thirty- five years. In 2010,
he moved to Weymouth, MA to be closer to his children, grandchildren, and sisters whom he visited
frequently. They will fondly remember his big hugs/kisses and getting spontaneous phone calls from
him just to say “I love you”. He enjoyed going on family trips to New Hampshire, Disney World, and
cruises. He also loved going out to breakfast with his grand-daughters and playing with his daughter’s
two boxer dogs “Sam” and “Bella” in the back yard. Paul will be greatly missed by all who knew and
Due to Covid restrictions a small service for family and friends will be held for Paul on Monday
December 21 st from 9 to 11 A.M. at Boston Cremation 116 Franklin Street in Quincy.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
