LEOMINSTER --- Paul Devin, 84, of Leominster, MA, passed away peacefully after an illness January 11th, 2021. Paul was the loving husband of Janet Devin (Tresaloni) for 61 years. He was the cherished father of Timothy Devin and his wife Anne of Monroe, ME and Kelly Devin and her husband Michael O’Connell of Wakefield, MA; devoted grandpa to Thomas Devin, Benjamin Devin, David Weinberg, and Chris Weinberg.
Paul is survived by his sister Carol Robichaud and husband Ron of Galena, OH and his brother John Devin and wife Lisa of Leominster.
Paul and Janet were high school sweethearts and were bonded for life. He received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from St. Anselm College and his master's degree from The College of the Holy Cross. His education and personality led Paul to a long and successful career in sales and marketing. Paul’s career made him a world traveler, but his favorite place was with his family, holding court at the table and smoking a cigar. After Paul retired, he and Janet moved to Southport, NC where they lived for 14 years before returning to Leominster. During retirement Paul mastered the art of making breads, homemade pasta, pies and muffins. If something didn’t come out quite correct, Paul used his chemistry skills to fine tune the recipe. He loved being outside in his yard, tending his vegetable garden, and sitting at the beach. He was an avid crossword puzzle solver and reader.
A funeral mass for Paul will be held on Saturday, January 16th at 11am in St. Anna Church, 194 Lancaster St. Burial will follow in St. Leo Cemetery, Leominster. There are no calling hours.
