Paul was born in Lowell, MA on January 11, 1927, and was the son of the late Phillip and Diana (Gagnon) Dube. He lived in Tewksbury for many years before moving to Nashua.
He proudly served his country during WWII in the United States Navy until he was honorably discharged in August of 1946.

In his free time, he enjoyed keeping up with current events and taking trips with his wife to visit their daughter and her family in Spain. He was a charter member at the Knickerbocker Club in Lowell. He loved bird watching, and appreciated the outdoors with yardwork or sitting in the sun. Paul was an extremely devoted family man and husband. His most cherished time was spent with his family especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He now joins his wife of 68 years whom he missed more than words can express.
