Obituary for Paul B. Traynor


WATERBURY - Mr. Paul Traynor - age 82, was reunited with his loving wife, Marylene (his hunny) on Monday, August 26, 2019 in the comfort of his home after a long illness. He died exactly how he lived ……. surrounded by love and on his own terms.

Paul was born July 10, 1937 in Augusta, Maine, the son of the late Earl and Laura Traynor. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving as a Seaman on the USS Salem, CA-139 from 1957-1959. He served in Internal Intelligence on the Salem during the Lebanon Crisis in 1958. After his discharge, he worked as a machinist for many years, spending the majority of the time at Fenn Manufacturing. In retirement, he worked at the Pierpont Package Store for and with his friend, Ken.

Paul enjoyed singing opera, playing golf, and most importantly cooking for his family. While he could easily be described as hardworking, faithful, and humble, those who knew him remember him most for his humor, his charm, and his ability to make everyone around him smile.
