Paul was born in Waltham, MA on March 30, 1933; he was the dear son of the late Anthony and Alice (DeLaurier) Sevigny. Paul was raised and educated in Belmont and Watertown and was a graduate of Watertown High School.
Paul enlisted in the United States Army on February 3, 1953, during the Korean War. He served overseas as a Sergeant with the 851st CRD for more than two years. Paul received several medals and commendations for his service and was honorably discharged on January 31, 1961; returning home to his family.
Paul was a bachelor for years when he met and fell in love with Jean Conroy; a beautiful young widow and the mother of five small children. Paul was up for the challenge; the couple married in 1965 and Paul became an instant “dad” to Maureen, Brian, Mark, Jacqueline, and Barbara. Paul and Jean decided to round out the family with the birth of their son Paul and life was complete. Paul and Jean lived in Winchester for a short time before moving to Woburn where they raised their family. As his boys got older, Paul became very involved in Woburn Youth Hockey where he coached for many years and was Past President of the Youth Hockey Association.
Paul loved his family unconditionally and enjoyed every moment they spent together whether they were on the Cape for their annual Fourth of July Cookouts, parties on the beach at their home in Hyannis, their family trip to Florida, their many birthday celebrations, or just getting together on a Sunday; whatever the reason he loved to have his family around.
When Paul became “Pa” to his 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren his life became more enriched. Paul attended countless sporting events, school functions, dance recitals, and graduations; he was always there for the kids.
Paul loved sports; he enjoyed golfing, fishing, and was known to be an Avid Red Sox and Patriots fan.
In his spare time, Paul loved to cook for his family and friends and spend time making handmade oriental rugs that were quite impressive.
Following his retirement from Silibond Industries where Paul was a salesman for many years he and Jean learned to relax and travel. The couple had a great time traveling abroad especially to Ireland, they enjoyed their many Caribbean Cruises, and they loved to relax at their home in Kittery, Maine.
Paul was a “great guy” who truly loved his family and friends. He had a wonderful sense of humor and could be quite a character. Paul will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
