Obituary

YARMOUTH - Paul J. Bourgeois, 76, passed away peacefully on June 27, 2019, surrounded by his three sons and dog, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He accepted and fought this as a true warrior of life. Family and love were above all to him. Paul was born in Waltham, Mass., in February of 1943. He was a devoted father and master craftsman. His foundation was in that of carpentry. He completed course instruction in welding/forging and graduated from Minuteman Tech, Lexington, Mass., in 1979. He co-founded Conant Construction in Weston, Mass. during the mid-1970s. He remodeled a home on Derby Street in West Newton, Mass., which is where he started his family. Later he moved his family to Maine in mid-1980s where he continued to work the building/remodeling industry. His interests included woodworking, bird carving, making knives from his forge, bow hunting, fishing, black powder rifles, muscle cars, street rods and all automotive history. He built a 1967 Shelby Cobra, SC replica with his son, Chris, in the early 2000s. This car brought over 20 trophies collectively. He was an active member of the Waltham Pushrods, car club. He was also an active participant in the local Maine car clubs being a regular at "cruise nights." Paul was well versed and fascinated with Native American history/culture, weaponry and wildlife. One of his favorite museums in the world was the Higgins Armory in Worcester, Mass.
