Paul A. Smith, Jr., 85, of Marlborough, joined his beloved wife, Claire Ann Smith (Colomey) peacefully on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, with his loving family at his side.

Paul was a proud veteran of the Korean War serving in the US Navy.

Paul was the son of the late Rose (Stubenz) and Paul A. Smith, Sr. of Pennsylvania and Florida.

He was the loving father of his children, Susan Patterson of Marlborough, Linda Smith of Shrewsbury, Paul A Smith, III of Norwalk, CT and Kelly Smith of Framingham.

Devoted Papa to Michael (and his wife Emily) of Somerville, Christopher (and his wife Brianne) of Grafton and Matthew (and his fiancée Samantha) of Holden.

Cherished Great Papa to Dylan, Cordelia and Gavin.

Dear Brother of Mary Jane (and her husband Rich) of Deland, FL

And many loving friends too numerous to mention.

Paul lived his final years at Beaumont Nursing Home where he quickly became the man of many stories that both residents and staff would look forward to listening to, the resident "foodie" who diligently worked at keeping the menu updated and tasty as well as one of the stars of the annual sing a longs that were hosted.

Paul had a varied career over the years spending time at The Polaroid Corporation, New England Medical Center, Crosby Valve and Gauge in Woonsocket, RI, Data General in Southborough and finally finishing his career at PA Smith, Jr and Associates with Associates in Houston and Indianapolis helping many people find their perfect careers.

The family would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the staff at the Beaumont Nursing Home for the love and kindness always shown to their father as well as the many residents who embraced him with open arms and formed beautiful friendships.  All of you have touched our hearts.
