Obituary for Paul F. Berry

Portland - Paul F. Berry, 52, died unexpectedly in his sleep on September 12, 2017, we are heartbroken and saddened by the loss.
Paul was born on February 3, 1965, in Portland, Maine, the youngest son of Mary F. (Sullivan) and John E. Berry.
Paul was married to his one and only true love, Laurie (King) Berry on July 24, 2004. His in laws immediately adopted him into their family and have been his support and comfort through some very difficult, grievous times.
In the past two years, Paul lost his brother John; his mother; father in law, Raymond King; two uncles; and several dear friends. His passing is a shock to us all.
Paul worked for the USPS for the past 30 years. He was always involved, and an active participant for the union (NALC) and organized the annual golf tournament for MDA. He was a natural leader and entrepreneur at a very young age. He delivered newspapers, worked at the Civic Center, and used his talents to achieve his financial independence.
Paul was a brother to not only his siblings, but to an extended group of West End buddies, postal co-workers, and the many others who he played sports with throughout his short life. Paul hosted Thursday night darts at their house for the past 18 years. It was a ritual never to be missed, each Thursday at 6:20pm we made a toast to all our dearly departed, young and old, each of them an honor to have been part of our lives.
Paul was an exceptional athlete. A die hard New England Sports fan and he loved Duke Basketball. He was always outgoing, charismatic, witty and smiling as he walked the streets of Portland delivering mail.
He leaves behind his loving wife, Laurie; sisters, Kathleen Deneault and her husband Paul, Gail Cipoletta and her husband Stewie Solomon, Stephanie Berry and her husband Kevin; sister in law, Karen Berry; mother in law, Claudette King; sister in law, Kelly Conley and her husband Kevin; brother in law, Christopher King and his wife Liz; and a very special aunt, Celeste Fecteau and many nieces and nephews. In addition, there are too many mentionables to list, but you all know who you are. It is with great sadness we say goodbye to one of the best West Enders ever, Slainte PB!
