Paul Charles Cloutier

July 9, 1936October 8, 2021

Paul C. Cloutier, 85, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle; passed away on October 8, 2021, at the High Pointe Hospice House, Haverhill, MA following a brief illness.

He was born in Manchester on July 9, 1936, the son of Germain and Aurore (Jean) Cloutier.

Paul’s legacy is one of faith, family, and love. In 1960, he married the love of his life, Pat (Dion) Cloutier at St. Charles Church in Dover, NH. Throughout their wonderful 61-years of marriage, the couple lived in Manchester, Rollinsford, Somersworth, and Bedford NH, where they have resided for the past 20 years.

Paul is survived by his wife, Pat and his five children: Elisabeth Cloutier of Manchester, Anne-Marie Cloutier of Nahant, MA, Gail Rogers and her husband Christopher of Bedford, Denise Cloutier of Manchester, and Roland Cloutier and his wife Laura of Palm Harbor, FL. His four grandchildren are: Brittany Miller and her husband Matt, Brianna Cloutier, Matthew Rogers, and Brandon Rogers. Paul also has several nieces and nephews.

In high school, Paul ran track with his brother Robert, but roller skating was his passion. Paul won regional championships in roller-skating, a sport he continued to enjoy watching during his later years. Paul was proud of his service as an air policeman in the US Airforce and he supported veteran programs such as the American Legion. Following his service, Paul’s career centered around his enjoyment of service to others, and he built lasting relationships in customer service. He worked in sales, service, management, and leadership for Elkins Coffee and New England Coffee companies.

During his retirement, Paul loved spending time with his family. He travelled with his wife Pat and had a passion to help all his children on projects at their respective homes. He also attended baseball games and track meets of his grandsons, equestrian events for his granddaughters, and spent time with them as often as possible. Paul was also a Red Sox fan and celebrated his 80th birthday with his family at Fenway Park.

He was predeceased by his three brothers, Ronald, Robert, and Raymond Cloutier.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, October 22, 2021, from 2:00-6:00pm at McHugh Funeral Home, 283 Hanover St. A Catholic Mass will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021, at 10 am at the Parish of Transfiguration, Kelley Street followed by a service at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Dover, NH.

Paul has been part of my life since I was 8 years old. We shared many memories from his leaking chevy going through water puddles to meeting his future wife, Pat at our wedding (Jackie and I). Having no brothers or sisters, Paul has always been a brother to me and will always be in my heart. It won't be too long before we see each other again old buddy.
