WATERVILLE - Paul R Soucy , 61, departed this life prematurely, Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019. He was born in Skowhegan to Raymond and Lorraine Soucy on Sept. 5, 1957.

Soon after graduating from Madison High School in 1976 Paul enlisted in the United States Army, serving four years in the Communications Electronics Installation Battalion with tours in Korea and Germany. Upon discharge, Paul pursued electronics at Kennebec Valley Vocational Technical Institute, which led to a 30-year career as a Telephone Installation and Repair Technician, first with New England Telephone & Telegraph and eventual retirement from Fairpoint Communications in 2013.

Paul enjoyed spending time at Chase Pond where his father taught him to hunt and fish at a young age. He was an avid New England sports fan partial to watching the Patriots and

Red Sox. A very generous man with a heart of gold, Paul always put family and friends first. He was an animal lover, frequently spoiling his beloved cats with fresh shrimp and faithfully feeding the squirrels wherever he lived, affectionately referring to each as his pet "Rocky". He had a dry sense of humor and an innate ability to make people laugh, creating clever nicknames for friends and family, and instigating antics with his nieces and nephews, who loved to be around him. His friends were the subjects of his many practical jokes. The stories of Paul's mischievous exploits have given his family cause to smile during this difficult time. In the words of his nephew, "If you didn't know him, you wouldn't get it. He was truly one of a kind". He will be greatly missed.

Paul is survived by his parents; his sister Lynn Mantor and her husband Tony, his brothers Tim and his wife Patsy, and Leo and his wife Laurie; his niece Leanne and nephews Nathan, Brandon, Matthew and Sean.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, at 10 a.m. at St Sebastian Catholic Church, 161 Main St., Madison. A celebratory reception will follow at the American Legion Hall, 20 Maple St., Madison.
