Windham, NH - On Tuesday, November 19th, 2019 Paul Browinski crossed the finish line of a life well-lived. What started in South Roxbury, in 1935 ended just over 84 years later. He eventually succumbed to Lewy body dementia while in residence at Aurora Senior Living in Derry, NH.
A childhood spent just north of Boston, literally peaked when he reached a height of 6' as a seventh grader - he never grew another inch after that! He graduated from Northeastern University in Boston with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1961. A member of their ROTC program, he subsequently rose to the rank of 1st Lieutenant in the US Army Reserve. He parlayed this military experience into jobs in the defense sector with AVCO and Textron where he eventually transitioned into a role in marketing.
His technical acumen and practical DIY knowledge were bolstered by a prodigious appetite for reading. A self-trained speed reader, he often checked out a dozen library books at a time and finished them all well before their two week due date. If his clever wit got him in trouble for being off-color, he often extricated himself with a quick, well-intentioned pun.
He enjoyed fishing, mechanical flight, technology and the opportunity to learn anything new. He traveled extensively for his job and his residences included Everett, Chelsea, Andover, Lawrence and Haverhill, MA, Ohio, Albuquerque, NM, Dumfries, VA, Camarillo, CA and Windham, NH. He relished a good road trip and drove across the USA numerous times.
He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Martha Browinski (née Sybicki). He is survived by his wife of over 49 years, Donna Lee, their two sons Jeffrey Dennis and Gregg, his younger siblings, Bernard Browinski and Susan Spicer and their respective families. In lieu of traditional funeral services, his ashes will be scattered at the mouth of the Merrimack River in Massachusetts in a private ceremony.
