Paul Belanger, 82, of Lowell, MA died December 3, 2021 at Tufts Medical Center surrounded by his loving family.

He was married to “his princess”, Elaine Belanger, with whom he celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this past September 16th. Together, they created a large, close-knit family, who often spent their Sundays together having dinner or cookouts, while Paul recorded with his video camera. Paul, or as his grandkids call him, “Pépère”, was always filming everything, from birthdays to holidays to his grandkids running around outside and sledding, he created so many amazing memories that his family will cherish forever.

Born in Lowell, MA, he was the son of the late Joseph and Helen Belanger.  He graduated from St. Joseph High School with the class of 1958 and attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell in the 70s for Business.

He proudly served with the U.S. Navy. He retired from Lundstedt & Rondeau Builders Co., where he worked for several years as a carpenter. Paul loved to build things and is known for his “crooked” fingers from years of working in construction. He loved building bird houses and fixing anything he could around the house. Paul even helped build the house he and his wife resided in, the same house where they raised all of their children.

Paul was an avid Red Sox fan. He coached baseball for his sons through the Lowell Little League and volunteered with a group of parents, known as the Highland Players, that he would sing with during charity events for the Lowell Little League. Paul loved to sing. He was always singing, tapping his hands or foot, or whistling Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby or Perry Como. Paul absolutely loved Christmas. He enjoyed stringing up the lights and putting up the tree every year and loved to sit by the tree, listening and singing along to Christmas music. Paul and Elaine hosted Christmas Eve every year for their family and so many memories were created there each year.

He was the brother of the late Theresa Denommee, Cecile Fortier and Marcelle McCormick. He is also predeceased by his oldest son, Michael Belanger, whom he worked with for many years, who passed this past March.

Besides his wife he is survived by his daughters, Paula Carpenter of Lowell and Lisa Fascione and her husband Paul of Lowell; a son, Mark Belanger and his wife Barbara of Chelmsford; a sister, Annette Deninno and her husband Vincent of Bristol, RI; eight grandchildren, Matthew Belanger and family, Amanda Moore and her husband, Shawn, of Nashua, New Hampshire, Shannon Brennick and her husband, Joshua, of New Ipswich, New Hampshire, Courtney Donahue and her husband, Kasey, of Amherst, New Hampshire , Jessica Carpenter and her fiancé, Chan, of Fitchburg, Nicole Belanger and her boyfriend, Matt, of Lowell, Ryan Belanger, of Chelmsford and Tylor Carpenter, of Lowell. He also leaves behind nine great-grandchildren including Kash, Remi, Luna, Kaelob, Joshua Jr., Niko and Owen, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours Wednesday 6 to 8 P.M. with a service at 8 P.M. at the DOLAN FUNERAL HOME 106 MIDDLESEX ST. CHELMSFORD. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in his name to the Tufts Medical Center Development Office, 800 Washington St. #231 Boston, MA 02111. ARRANGEMENTS BY DOLAN FUNERAL HOME 978-251-4041.

    Uncle Paul, was one of the funniest men I have ever known. He always lit up a room when he entered, and always made you feel important to him. I have nothing but warm and fond memories of my uncle. He was one of the best!! He will be sorely missed.

    Paul was the most wonderful brother that a girl could have; as a brother-in-law they did not come any better. And she was very high on her brother, I thought the world of him. He used to perform in annual musical for the little league, he would sing and sounded just like Perry Comeau. I thought that Paul was the greatest guy around, and Annette adored her brother.

    Dear Elaine and family.

    I’m shocked and saddened to hear about Paul’s passing. It’s difficult to imagine him without a smile on his face. From our times in the Garde Sacre Coeur and at St. Joe’s, to latter chance meetings, he was always friendly, always accommodating, always special. Rest in peace my friend.
