Paul J. Ryan, 76

Shrewsbury - Paul J. Ryan, of Shrewsbury, died unexpectedly at home Wednesday, March 13, 2013. He was 76.

Paul was born Dec. 3, 1936 in Somerville, a son of the late Thomas F. and Mildred V. (Neville) Ryan. He was raised in Cambridge and graduated from Saint John the Evangelist High School in North Cambridge. He earned both his Bachelor degrees from Northeastern University. He honorably served in the United States Army. He lived many years in Somerville before moving to Stoneham and finally settling in Shrewsbury to be closer to his family.

He was a purchasing manager for Loren Products Co., based in Lawrence for many years before his retirement, and spent his entire career in the purchasing industry.

Paul’s needs in life were simple and its these things that made him most happy: time with his grandchildren, attending their sporting events as “Grampy” and never missing an opportunity to watch them play, a good cigar, a nice glass of scotch with family and friends, a challenging conversation about politics (often one-sided), a good bargain, and the love of his family.

He leaves his daughters, Elisabeth M. “Lisa” Morgera and her husband, Michael, of Shrewsbury and Katharine L. Riedinger and her husband Ray, of Double Oak, Texas; his grandchildren, Andrew, Ryan, and Thomas Morgera, and Luke and Dustin Riedinger; his sister, Mildred Macone and her husband, Vincent, of Stoneham; and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his brothers, Edwin, Thomas, and George Ryan.

Family and friends will honor and remember Paul’s life by gathering for calling hours Sunday, March 17, from 3 to 6 p.m., at Heald & Chiampa Funeral Directors ~ The Sumner House, 5 Church Road, On the Common, Shrewsbury Center, and again Monday, March 18, at 9 a.m., before leaving in procession to Saint Mary’s Church, 640 Main St., Shrewsbury, where his funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in Mountain View Cemetery of Shrewsbury.

In lieu of flowers, please honor Paul’s memory with a contribution to The United Way of Central Mass, 484 Main St., Worcester, MA 01608.
