OBITUARY

Paul J. Chiuchiolo, of Woburn passed away on Thursday September 17 in Norwalk, Connecticut. He was seventy one years of age. He was the beloved husband of Elsa M. (Luther) Chiuchiolo to whom he was married for forty seven years.

Paul was born in Medford, the son of the late Domenic and Margaret (Kelly) Chiuchiolo. The Chiuchiolo family settled in Woburn, where he was raised, when Paul was just eighteen months old. He was a graduate of Woburn Memorial High School with the Class of 1961. Following his graduation, Paul enlisted in the United States Air Force. He served his country proudly overseas as a helicopter mechanic. While enlisted, Paul furthered his education and gained a substantial background in mechanical engineering. He would go on to work for both General Electric and Sikorsky as an engineer.

After returning home from the Air Force, Paul was set up on a blind date in January of 1967. It was there that he met his future wife Elsa. They would date for the next year, and were married in 1968 at St. Bridgid’s Church in Lexington. As the Chiuchiolo family grew, they welcomed three children into the world. Paul’s job brought the family all over the world, working in California, Alabama, Kentucky, Virginia and even Germany.

The Chiuchilolo’s finally settled in Woburn and continued raising their children. They enjoyed many summer trips to Sunrise Resort in Connecticut as well as Salisbury Beach. Paul, when he was not working, could often be found behind the keyboard of a computer. More than anything, he cherished the time he spent with his children and grandchildren, making trips to Florida for visits with “Poppy”. Paul will be remembered as a truly devoted father and grandfather.

In addition to his parents, Paul was sadly predeceased by his son David A. Chiuchiolo and his sister, the late Mary Welch.

He is lovingly survived by his wife Elsa M. (Luther) Chiuchiolo; his children Paul J. Chiuchiolo Jr. and his wife Bridget of FL, Brian E. Chiuchiolo of Woburn; his grandchildren Isabel and Sophia; and his sister Elizabeth Doucette and her husband Alfred of Winchester.

Funeral from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Tuesday, September 22nd at 9:15 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn at 10. Interment is private. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to call at the Funeral Home on Monday from 4 to 8 p.m.

  4. Mike Callahan-
    Elsa and family, so very sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to know and work with and for Paul over the past 36 years and always learned from our discussions. Especially our time in Germany in the early 1980’s.
    His sense of humor will really be missed!
