Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm very saddened to have just learned of Paul's death. It's now April 7, 2015 and wish that I'd seen his obituary earlier. He was a good person, and a flea market pal who I enjoyed visiting with each Sunday at the Hollis flea market. We were both vendors and set up not far apart. It was always exciting to see what he'd found and brought to sell. He was pleasant, cheerful, caring, honest and a good person. Paul was genuinely liked by both vendors and customers. This season will be VERY sad to not have him with us, and he'll be sorely missed. Indeed the world is now a poorer place without him. Bless you Paul.. we all love you!

My condolences for your loss. Paul & I have worked together since "1982" on the old ambulance service & engines 2,7,1,5.

We became friends, over this time because we had simular interests in other peoples JUNK/ OUR TREASURES since we both enjoyed antiques and classic cars.

Everytime we saw each other, he would show me his finds. He loved polishing these items and getting them ready for re-sale. I will miss him so much. He was the YARD SALE KING!

Sincere respects to the entire Tousignant family. I worked with Paul when he was "the old rookie" at MFD Engine 5 on Webster Street. Pound for pound a real solid fireman who had high regard for his profession and his brothers working beside him. You could tell, family and home was his anchorage in life. I'll miss bumping into him at the antique stops. We'd always remember some humorous times back on the job. We lose a real good man.
