Paul Joseph Conley

NORTH ATTLEBORO - Paul J. Conley, 65, of North Attleboro, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on November 1, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.   He was the beloved husband of Mary A. Conley, to whom he was married for 43 years. 

Born on January 7, 1951, in Boston, he was the son of the late James and Eleanore (Lewis) Conley.  He spent most of his childhood in Dedham, MA where he was a graduate of Dedham High School.  Paul then went on to receive an associate’s degree from Bryant and Stratton in Boston, MA, and also attended Providence College.

A resident of North Attleboro for the past 41 years, Paul most recently held the position of Manager, Planning at Robert Allen Group in Foxboro, MA.   He also worked for System Software Associates of Holliston, MA where he was honored several times with their President’s Club award.  He also worked for RTC Systems of Mansfield and Englehard Industries of Plainville.  Paul was a long standing member of the American Production and Inventory Control Society.  He took pride in the friendships made with his co-workers at the Robert Allen Group, especially “The Early Retirement Club”.

Paul’s most treasured times were spent with his family.  Paul and Mary spent many summers making memories with Stephen and Matthew, “down-home” in Prince Edward Island, and later established their own summer home on the ocean in Prince Edward Island. 

Paul enjoyed Friday night dinners at the various restaurants near his home, especially the Tavern.  He was an avid home-brewer and enjoyed the many close friendships he established through the Witches Brew brewshop in Foxboro, MA.   Paul could often be found at the Witches Brew on Saturday afternoons, both working and joking around with his friends.  

Paul was also an avid fan of the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox.

In addition to his wife, Mary, he is survived by his children: Stephen and his wife Maria of Milton; Matthew and his wife Melinda of North Attleboro; and his beloved grandchildren, Flynn and Emerson of Milton and Jacob, Jeffrey and Julia of North Attleboro.  He was the brother of James P. Conley and his wife Christine of Wellesley Hills, MA; Eleanor A. Pooree and her husband Douglas of Rio Vista, CA; Carol E. Fitzgerald and her husband James of Dedham; John J. Conley and his wife Alice of Norton, MA; and Jane Carpenter of Lunenburg, MA.  He was the brother-in-law of Susan and her husband Michael of Attleboro, MA.   He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, and cousins.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday, November 4 from 5-8 p.m. in the Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 5 at 10 a.m. at St. Mary’s Church, 83 Central Street, Foxboro followed by burial at Mt. Hope Cemetery & Arboretum, Attleboro Falls.

I met Paul at work (Robert Allen) 14 yrs ago, I knew right away he was a going to become a close friend.
I will always have fond memories of our time together, and consider myself lucky to have known such a great man.

RIP Paul

Mary and family, I am so sorry to hear of Paul's passing. You all waged a courageous battle. Mary I believe your strength, love and support as well as your visits to PEI gave Paul the motive and stamina to live. Paul will be sorely missed especially by the regulars at the Tavern.

Paul and I started working at Robert Allen the same week back in 2003. We being the newbies, developed a close friendship. I have been living in South Florida for 7 years now and knew of Paul's battle with cancer. My prayers go out to his family. May he Rest In Piece...
