  • My husband Dominic and I were very saddened to hear of my cousin Paul’s passing. We had visited him recently and were very surprised yet thankful we were able to spend time with him before he died. He was always happy to see us and greeted us warmly. He will be missed by his new friends and, of course, his other friends and all his family.
    One of my most vivid memories is of him taking his daily walk to the Main Beach in Ogunquit. Another clear memory is of him and my brother Greg watching me run outside the cottage and telling me they would train me for the Olympics!

  • David, Paula and family. Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of cousin Paul.
    He was a bright, articulate and quick witted man, a Luciano/Balboni trait, for sure!
    I remember his athleticism, his love for his beautiful dogs and his kindness to children.

  • Dear David, Paula, Gina and Eric: We were so sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. We offer you our deepest condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Judy and Bob

  • David, Paula and family. Please accept our deepest sympathy on the passing of our cousin, Paul.
    He was a bright, articulate and quick witted guy…a Luciano/Balboni trait, for sure.
    I shall remember his athleticism, his unconditional love for his beautiful dogs and his kindness to children.

  • So sorry to hear about my cousin, Paul. I remember going to Northeastern football games to watch him play and my Uncle Ecio coaching. Many a Saturday my Father and I would go by Arlington to pick Paul up to go to Fitton field to watch Holy Cross play. Uncle Ecio also coached there. Spending time in my youth with Paul and David in Ogunquit still holds special in my heart.
    Rest In Peace, Cousin..

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • It is with great sadness that I heard of Paul’s passing. There were six of us cousins from the Luciano side of the family with me being the oldest by 3 years. I never thought that Paul would be the first of us to leave this life. I recall many holidays and summer days with Paul and our Luciano family at our house and at the Ecio Luciano family’s home in Arlington. I remember Paul’s affection for my mother, his Aunt Eva, which she always appreciated. Paul, may you rest in peace.
