He lived in Winslow for nearly 20 years. Paul loved eating breakfast everyday with friends at the Purple Cow. He also loved spending time with family at their camp on Sheepscot Lake. He spent most of his time hunting and motorcycling. He enjoyed boating and vacationing on Campobello Island at their summer home as well as traveling in their R.V. to the Fryeburg fair every year possible, staying for the entire fair. Paul really enjoyed watching westerns. He frequently enjoyed trips to Young’s Lobster Pound in Belfast. He spent every Friday night having couples dinners with friends. He loved family time and built his grandchildren a very special tree cabin that they made many memories in and will always cherish. He is survived by his wife and best friend, Johnna, a daughter Cindy Nelson and her husband Mark, a son Robert Bowen and his wife Kim, stepdaughter Jillian Jolicoeur and husband Richard, stepson Benjamin Bolduc and significant other Annalee Morris, and stepson Christopher Bolduc and wife JoAnn..
