Eastham- Paul J. Alarie, 89, of Eastham and formerly of Worcester and Longmeadow, MA, passed away on Saturday, February 2, 2019. He was born on August 5, 1929 to Henry and Annette Alarie. He was the beloved husband of Mary Theresa (Anger) for 67 years, and dedicated father of Giselle (Wayne) Claxton, Mark (Donna) Alarie, David (Ellen) Alarie, and Suzanne (Holger Papke) Shepard. He was the cherished grandfather to eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. His family could not have loved him more. His favorite time of year was “Cape Week” at the Alarie Compound every 4th of July week and he just loved it when four generations got together over the years for family bonding.

He graduated from Assumption Prep and graduated from Boston University in 1950. He served his country honorably in the United States Navy, serving actively during the Korean Conflict and as a reserve member for 27 years. He was very active in his Catholic faith, serving as a lector and extraordinary minister. He was extremely involved in charity work on Cape Cod during retirement, serving others through his work with the multiple organizations such as the Kiwanis, Elks, and others. He volunteered for E.F.F.I., as well as the Theater of the Performing Arts. One of his proudest moments was the honor of being recognized as 2006-2007 Kiwanian of the Year for lower cape. Paul and Teresa were also the Eastham Windmill weekend honorees in 2015.

Dear Aunt Theresa, Giselle, Mark, David, and Susie,

I am so sorry to have learned of Uncle Paul's passing and can only imagine how difficult this good-bye must be for all of you. While I have not seen Uncle Paul in over ten years, his smile and the devilish twinkle in his eyes warms my heart whenever I think of him. His wit was keen and his kindness unrivaled. I loved him and love all of you despite the distance of both time and geography. I regret that I cannot be there with you at this difficult time. Please know that I hold each of you in my heart and will keep you in my prayers.

With sincerest sympathy,
Beth (Napoli) McCaffery
