Support for the Leonelli Family

Support for the Leonelli Family

 On January 5, 2021, Paul Leonelli passed away after a brief, yet hard-fought battle with cancer. Paul wasn’t just any father, husband, brother, and friend. He was loyal, kind, funny, and always enjoyable to be around.  Paul worked tirelessly for many years as a small business owner, providing for his wife and kids.  He was always happiest spending time on family vacations, at his son’s hockey games, his daughter’s dance recitals or softball games, and with his friends and family. 

Paul leaves behind his beautiful wife, Theresa (Kindergarten Teacher at Plympton School), and two amazing children,  Paul (Junior at Waltham High School) and Mary (8th grader at McDevitt Middle School).  

With all of the emotional pain and stress that death brings, it also brings financial burdens. As a community, we want to ease any stress on the family and support them in the best way possible.  We would like to help Theresa establish education funds for Paul and Mary who will both begin college in the next few years.  

It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see friends and family come together to help one another make it through and support those we care for. We are thankful for any support you may be able to provide. We also encourage everyone to keep the Leonelli family in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you in advance for your generous support!
