Paul Joseph Arsenault, on April 13th, 2021 at the age of 74 of Windham NH, formerly of Revere. Loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away at the age of 74. He was born in Revere, Massachusetts to parents Joe and Ruth. After high school, he joined the US Marines and then later served in the 126th Signal Battalion of the Army National Guard. He was a Revere police officer for over 20 years before he retired in 2000. Paul was a friend to everyone he met. He enjoyed striking up conversations with people wherever he went. He was good natured, laughed easily and never took himself too seriously. He struggled mightily with technology and some of his texts are legendary. He was always up for any adventure, and known to drop everything to help family or friends in need. He loved being outdoors, fishing, grilling and snappy hotdogs. More than anything, Paul loved his family. He was a devoted husband and wonderful father. He particularly enjoyed being a grandfather. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Elizabeth (Betty), his children Kerri, Edward and Erin, his son-in law Richard, and his grandchildren Nicolas, Ava and Benjamin as well as many nieces and nephews.
