Obituary for Donald W. Paradis

Donald W. Paradis passed away at home on Wednesday, June 15, 2022. He married Theresa I. Lefebvre on September 18, 1954 at Sacred Heart Church in Taftville, Connecticut. Together, they had four children: the late Stephen W. Paradis; Donna Tryon, wife of Robert, of Gales Ferry; Darlene Armstrong of Plainfield; and Lisa Novick, wife of Jeffrey, of Sterling. Donald is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 8 great children.
Donald and Theresa resided in Taftville for many years before movng to Salem where they resided until Donald’s passing. Donald was a truck driver for Sealtest for many years before retiring and taking a part-time position with the Norwich Bulletin.
Donald was a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan. He enjoyed collecting team memorabilia and spending his afternoons watching the games with Theresa. Donald’s interests also included his classic cars, a 1968 Chevy Camaro and a 1969 Chevy Corvette. He took tremendous pride in maintaining his cars and taking them for joyrides.
Despite many health challenges in his later years, Donald never stopped looking forward and made the most of his time with family. He enjoyed watching sunsets from his deck on the many cruises they took. He also loved challenging his grandchildren on Christmas Eve in Wii Bowling. Very rare did he let them win!
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Sacred Heart Chuch, Taftville on Thursday June 23, 2022 at 10 AM. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery.
