Obituary for Paul F. O'Connor

Paul Francis O’Connor, a lifelong resident of White Plains, N.Y. died peacefully at his childhood home on Tuesday, June 25, 2019. He was 73.

Born in White Plains, N.Y., on November 15 1945, Paul graduated from Manhattan College in 1967 with a degree in English. He embarked on a career in education, spending nearly four decades as a teacher in the Stamford (Conn.) school district, earning a Master’s Degree from California State University Dominguez Hill, before retiring in 2004. Paul also worked at Macy’s for many years.

He met his wife, Ronnie, at SUNY Albany and they were married February 14, 1970. The couple raised their four children: Sean, Diane, Chris and Colin, in Paul’s childhood home in Mayfair Acres. He was an avid tool smith and tinkerer; building and fixing any household project.

Paul loved music; folk, classical, and musicals, radio variety programs, and supporting – unconditionally - the activities of his family. He spent countless hours crisscrossing the region and nation for swim meets, college move-ins and outs, and performances. Paul was an active member within the Magdalene Community, receiving great joy from serving as an usher at weekend masses.

Paul was predeceased by his wife of 48 years, Ronnie, in September. He is survived by his four children; Sean (Kim), Diane (David), Christopher (Ashley) and Colin (Eileen). He was the loving grandfather to five grandchildren; Megan, Owen, Ellen, Liam and Abigail. He is also survived by his sister, Kathy and predeceased by his parents Francis and Margaret (Zelt).

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at The Church of the Magdalene in Pocantico Hills, Friday, June 28 at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in White Plains, N.Y.

Over 15 years of my tenure at the Magdalene you and Ronnie were always there in a gentle and loving way as our official "greeters" at Mass and in so many other ways.
On this Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus may you and Ronnie now rest in the eternal love of God. Fr Joe Dietz
