Mr. Berube you were a true gentlemen and role model for me growing up. I am a blessed person to have had the opportunity to have known you. Furthermore, I felt part of your family because of the way you and your family allowed me to be part of it. I recall the fun times at Seekonk Speedway, the Pitch-n-put course, and many ice cream adventures; not to mention all the childhood memories hanging out at the house, riding mini-bikes in the backyard, playing ball, and you allowing me to organize the garage after we've spend hours doing bike repairs and maintaining our motor powered machines. You did all this always with a smile and a smile that I'll forever miss until we meet again in heaven.

Went through high school and shop with Paul and worked on many a car together in shop. Quiet guy and a good friend all through high school. My deepest sympathy to all his family and he will be missed by all.

What a wonderful husband, father and brother. It was a beautiful eulogy that showed the love Paul gave and was given by his family. A gentleman he was.
Our prayers are with you at this sad time. We hope that the many happy memories help sustain you as you remember Paul's beautiful smile.

How I wish I could be there in person for Paul's funeral. He was a class guy who was a real man when it came to worship as well as being a wonderful husband and outstanding dad. I loved each time I could speak to him. My memories go far and long ago with him and your dear family. I will be praying for all of you. They will be quite a reunion in the new world. God love you all!
He and Anita made a wonderful couple each weekend near the back of our church. I am a richer man for having known him. Fr. Dick Gendreau

Anita, I am so sorry for your loss. Paul was an awesome man. He always made me smile when he came by to pick up Ricky for visits. Ricky was always so excited and happy to go on those home visits; he would literally jump up off the couch and already be sitting in the front seat of the truck before Paul even knew it. He was a good man and a great father to Ricky. I am blessed to have known him for the few years that I worked with Ricky. My prayer goes out to you and your family.
