Paul L. Sevigny

December 14th, 2014

Paul L. Sevigny, age 81, of Tewksbury and Hyannis, formerly of Woburn and Kittery, ME, died peacefully on December 13, 2014, at the Lowell General Hospital.

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.

Paul was the beloved husband of Jean F. (Coady-Conroy) Sevigny, devoted father of Maureen DeMango & her husband Sam of Wilmington, Brian Conroy & his wife Mary of Kittery Point, ME, Mark Conroy & his wife Linda of Londonderry, NH, Jacqueline Conroy-Aiesi of Wilmington, the late Barbara Conroy-Yaseem and Paul Sevigny. Loving “Pa” of Christyne & C.J. Anderson, David & Brendan DeMango, Joseph, Patrick, & Kathleen Conroy, Kyle, Lindsay, & Jenna Conroy, Melissa & Austin Aiesi, “Great Pa” of Declan & Aubree Anderson, cherished son of the late Anthony & Alice (DeLaurier) Sevigny, dear brother of the late Donald Sevigny, Bob Sevigny, Jean Steadman, and Dorothy Connors. Paul is survived by several brothers and sisters-in-law, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Family and friends will gather for a Funeral Service in the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62), Wilmington, on Friday, December 19th at 11:00 a.m. Interment with Military Honors will follow in Woodbrook Cemetery, Woburn.

    As we look back over time
    We find ourselves wondering …..
    Did we remember to thank you enough
    For all you have done for us?
    For all the times you were by our sides
    To help and support us …..
    To celebrate our successes
    To understand our problems
    And accept our defeats?
    Or for teaching us by your example,
    The value of hard work, good judgment,
    Courage and integrity?
    We wonder if we ever thanked you
    For the sacrifices you made.
    To let us have the very best?
    And for the simple things
    Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
    If we have forgotten to show our
    Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
    We’re thanking you now.
    And we are hoping you knew all along,
    How much you meant to us.
