Paul was employed by the Mansfield Police for 27 years, and upon retirement worked at Equip-rent in Foxboro, his "fun" part-time job where he worked with other police and fire retirees. He also started a custom awning and seamless gutter business which he operated for several years.
In his free time, Paul enjoyed visiting Cape Cod and the Islands with Marlene and friends. He also loved NASCAR and the New England Patriots.

He was known for his expertise in anything mechanical and his knowledge of how to operate, fix or build almost anything.
He was a wonderful cook and loved growing his vegetables in his garden every year.
Paul was a kind, sweet, decent man, as beautiful on the inside as he was on the outside. His youthful good looks, energy, and fun-loving, enthusiastic nature forever belied his age.
Paul was a very loving and respected man and will be missed by many.
