LISBON — Paul Martin Mason, Sr., age 78 went to be home with the Lord on Saturday June 3, 2017 with his caring wife by his side.

He was born May 20, 1939 in Phippsburg, ME. His first job as a young boy was on the Warren Dairy Farm, where he worked after school on his way home from the Little Yellow School House on Ridge Rd, Lisbon. He married his soul mate Olivia (Sis) Garnett on October 25, 1959.

He worked for Modern Roofing and Siding in the early 60’s while in the Presque Isle area. He had an admirable work ethic as evidenced having installed 106 square foot of 3 tab lock roofing in a single day with two other co-workers. In the early 80’s he started his own business, Paul Mason and Sons Roofing and Siding.

He was also a man who loved being home, but traveled the world with his wife. He enjoyed detailing his cars and trucks, mowing the Lawn, and through gardening keeping their home beautifully surrounded with flowers, shrubs and trees. He appreciated harvesting and cutting his own firewood, taken from his wood lot, which allowed him to use his tractor, wood splitter and chain saw.

He is survived by his wife; four children, Rick Mason and his wife Gina, Paul Mason Jr. and his wife Kim, Brenda Mason Lavers, Steve Mason and his partner James O’Sullivan; 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date for his family and friends. Memories and condolences can be expressed at www.brackettfuneralhome.com.
