Pasquale (Pat) J. Paradiso – lifelong resident of Woburn, died peacefully, October 12th at the age of ninety-three.

Born in Boston, Pasquale (Pat) was the son of the late John and Olympia (Guarino) Paradiso.  He was one of seven children, and a graduate of Woburn High School along with the Class of 1946.

Following high school, Pat enlisted in the United States Navy, where he proudly served his country.  After leaving the navy, he married his sweetheart, Patricia Power.  They have journeyed together for the last sixty-seven years; bringing into the world a daughter and two sons.

Pat went on to Bentley College and received his certification in Business.  He began his professional career as an underwriter in the insurance industry and later rose to the position of Vice President of a reinsurance brokerage firm.

Pat was very organized and had a proficiency for working with numbers.  When it came to accounting, he was the “go to guy!”  His attention to detail was exceptional, and he was always happy to help out his family and friends with their taxes, etc.

Pat was a very devout Catholic and worked at his beloved St. Anthony’s church as an usher.  He loved people and enjoyed being able to greet members of the congregation, handing out bulletins, holy palms, etc.

In later years, Pat, his wife and family enjoyed traveling, especially to Disney World.  He was also an avid fan of the Patriots, Bruins and the Red Sox and always enjoyed watching the games with his family. He was a true life-long “Boston fan!”

When it came to his family though, they were first and foremost.  Pat loved his home and keeping it up was a joy!  He enjoyed planting flowers and liked to have a neatly manicured lawn.  He was a very hard worker and always willing to help out others. 

A very loving and kind gentleman, Pat always led by example.  His faith, and his true love for his family brought him great joy and has left a legacy that will be long remembered and sadly missed.

Cherished husband of 67 years to Patricia J. (Power) Paradiso. Beloved father of Elaine Paradiso of Woburn, James Paradiso, his wife Ann Marie Goodwin of Deerfield, NH and David Paradiso of Tewksbury. Loving grandfather of Craig Paradiso.

    Pat has been known to me since early school days and later as a parishioner, volunteer, and usher at St. Anthony of Padua. Pat was a kind, friendly, and cordial gentleman. He will be missed.

    “Dave and I have known Pat for 25 years, living right in his neighborhood. He was always a hard worker when it came to chores around the yard. If he wasn’t on a ladder, then he was mowing or trimming. He had many stories to tell about the history of Woburn. That kind of information is priceless and we both appreciated every story. He had a map in his mind of what Woburn used to look like and all the landmarks that aren’t there anymore. It was amazing what he remembered. He will be missed.”

    So sorry. Uncle Pat lived a long, full life and was a fighter to the very end. I wish we could have seen him more often .
